AceShowbiz - Azealia Banks weighed in on the drama involving Dave Chappelle as well as Boosie Badazz (Lil Boosie), who landed in hot water for his homophobic rant against Lil Nas X. In an Instagram Story, the raptress didn't mince her words while commenting on both situations, calling both of them "embarrassing."
"Dave chappelle is also about four years late to the transphobia outrage attention grab. And Lil boosie gets no extra streets cred for antagonizing a young black kid for who he chooses to love," Azealia said on Tuesday, October 26. "Lil nas x is not the catalyst for the generational debris left behind from centuries of psychological terrorism and the sexual exploitation of black men AND women on southern plantations via forced slave breeding/buckbreaking/bed wenching."
She also noted in her post that the "Montero" artist didn't invent "systemic oppression thru food apartheid, anti-literacy laws and the for profit prison industrial complex. Lil nas x is not singlehandedly responsible for your decision to consider those trappings 'real n***a s**t' as you continue to wear your trauma & oppression as a badge of honor."
"The fact that you have the confidence to publicly suggest he kill himself for living a life free of all the things that have completely obliterated your ability to see yourself as anything other than a ward of the state is absolutely heartbreaking," Azealia said, referring to Boosie who asked Lil Nas X to kill himself in his controversial post.
"There's a lot of corporate money invested in clandestinely and insidiously putting yoou and other black men n situations to trap you. It's the hip-hop to prison pipeline. This is how they make their money. And keep you out of power," she penned. Adding that people like Boosie and Chappelle are being trapped, Azealia warned, "Please, I beg you. Realize that you are walking right into their trap. And lil nas x is not your enemy. We the culture do not want this is end in violence and incarceration. Please."
Meanwhile, in a separate post, the "Anna Wintour" raptress believed that Dave is "mor ethan obviously attracted to transwomen." She continued, "And that is okay! Life is short, Explore!"
