AceShowbiz - Iggy Azalea continued to fire back at trolls criticizing her over the "I Am the Stripclub" music video. Having been accused of blackfishing because she allegedly tanned her skin to look darker in the clip, the Australian-born femcee dubbed the allegation "ridiculous."

The 31-year-old offered her clapback via Twitter on Sunday, July 4. "I can't care about something that ridiculous and baseless. I'm wearing a shade 6 in armarni foundation, it's the same shade I've worn for the last 3 years. It's the same shade in every music video since 'Sally Walker'. Suddenly I wear a black wig in a club scene & its an issue," she first tweeted.

"I don't see an issue with 'Sally Walker', 'Started', 'F**k It Up', 'Sip 'It', 'Brazil' or any other look in this music video being spoken about in that way," the raptress, whose real name Amethyst Amelia Kelly, added. "It's the same fondation, so anyone who wants to reach can go ahead - y'all (weirdos online to clarify) love to do that, continue!"
