The clock is ticking for Iggy Azalea. Hacktivist group Anonymous tweeted the rapper demanding an apology for comments she has made via Twitter. It's the latest in an ever escalating battle between Azalea and Azealia Banks. On Thursday, Banks spoke to Hot 97 about cultural appropriation in hip hop, caling T.I. "a shoe-shining coon" and saying that "It's just upsetting given the deepness of the blackness that's gone."
Azalea responded with several tweets, including: "Special msg for banks: There are many black artists succeeding in all genres. The reason you haven't is because of your piss poor attitude.... You created your own unfortunate situation by being a bigot and don't have the mental capacity to realize it yet. Probably never will. Now! rant, Make it racial! make it political! Make it whatever but I guarantee it won't make you likable & THATS why ur crying on the radio."
Those tweets didn't sit well with Anonymous, and the group called the Australian out for them. Their message includes the following: "We apologize for our followers with regards to this following statement: F**k you, @IGGYAZALEA. #ICantBreathe.... You are guilty of misappropriating black culture, insulting peaceful protestors, and making light of Eric Garner's death...." The group is threatening to release screenshots from a rumored sextape starring the rapper if she does not apologize for her transgressions by tomorrow night (December 21).
As of this writing, there were no responses on Azalea's Twitter feed.
