Harlem rapper and infamous personality Azealia Banks has come under heavy fire for criticizing Australian pop star Troye Sivan. On November 8, 2023, Banks took to Instagram to air her grievances towards the singer after he gave one of her songs a shoutout.
“This is these white kids’ weird way of apologizing… I’m not impressed by any of these people… not having the audacity to be as public and loud with their apology as they were with using their platform to cast judgment as if a singular me was an important social justice issue,” said Banks on her brand account, cheapyxousa.
Banks’ seemingly random outburst came after Sivan named the 2014 hit “212” as his “go-to pre-game banger.” Banks went on a long rant on her Instagram Story despite the friendly remark, lambasting the artist for being two-faced. But she sparked controversy with her comments when she attacked aspects of Sivan’s sexuality.
“Trying ur hardest to hold on to the fucking weak ass pedophilia x incest aesthetic,” accused Banks. “Give it up, puberty hit that ass and made u a doofy looking young man. I bet he’ll pull the grift ‘come out’ as trans next.”
Fans on both sides were shocked, confused, and angry at the offensive accusations, labeling her a bigot. The comments are a continuation of a longstanding beef between the two, stemming back to 2018, where Sivan implied that, as much as he wants to, he cannot get behind Banks.
In an interview on “Watch What Happens Live” with host Andy Cohen, Sivan shared his feelings towards the rapper. “I mean, I was a huge Azealia Banks fan, but that all went south a little bit. It’s just one of those annoying things where you just wanna support [her] so bad and it just doesn’t work out like that,” said Sivan, referring to her long history of problematic comments.
For the most part, fans have rallied behind Sivan, calling Banks things from irrelevant to bitter.
But for loyal Azealia Banks fans, this is nothing new.
