Female rapper Azealia Banks has drawn a lot of criticism over her recent interview with Playboy magazine.
In it, the 23-year-old from New York reveals she hates America. In fact, she hates everything about it and plans to leave.
“I hate everything about this country. Like, I hate fat white Americans. All the people who are crunched into the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms,” she said.
“Those little teenage girls who work at Kmart and have a racist grandma — that’s really America,” Banks stated before going onto talking about race.
“Black people need reparations for building this country, and we deserve way more f***king credit and respect,” she said.
“It's always about race. Lorde can run her mouth and talk sh*t about all these other b***ches, but y'all aren't saying she's angry. If I have something to say, I get pushed into the corner. Really, the generational effects of Jim Crow and poverty linger on. As long as I have my money, I'm getting the f**k out of here and I'm gonna leave y'all to your own devices.”
Azealia Banks has over 500,000 Twitter followers. There is no telling on what the reception will be when she performs her next concert in the country she hates so much.
