Azealia Banks’s guest star appearance on Nick Cannon’s Wild ‘N Out sketch comedy TV hit series went totally left, according to her, after she revealed to her fans on Sunday (July 15) that she was brought to tears over low blows from the production crew and cast regarding her skin color.
In a lengthy Instagram post, the Ice Princess discussed the experience, recalling that she’d “never felt so much hate and rage” and calling out the cast for their remarks. But the show’s star host and executive producer Nick Cannon doesn't feel the same. Nor does Emmanuel Hudson, one cast member who doesn’t remember things happening the way Azealia described it at all.
He went over the entire recollection of events, claiming that the jokes were only mild. He added that after her attempts at firing back failed, a chance happening on the show for several star guests, the producers halted the game.
“She left after the first game, came back & didn’t say a single word till her performance!” he wrote in his scathing Instagram messagae. “AFTER THE SHOW! She performed a song but the moment was ruined…”
Eman said that the cast began joking around, catwalking and such as models to lighten up the already awkward moment and save her “from further embarrassment” during her performance. According to him, by no means was she “ambushed or tricked,” but she simply wasn’t delivering jokes that landed and became bitter over it.
