AceShowbiz - Azealia Banks has reacted to news that reported Joe Budden came out as bisexual. "The Big Big Beat" raptress said that the "Pump It Up" rapper was "munching bird'' in a social media post, claiming that she's been warning people for years.
As the report of Joe's sexuality has been spreading on social media, the 30-year-old raptress reacted to his announcement and tried to force him back "into the closet," claiming that he simply broke the news to "spite" her. "Joe Budden only came out two months earlier than 2022 to try and spite me," she claimed in an Instagram Story.
"He was supposed to stay in the closet until that ball dropped," Azealia continued. She went on to say, "Let's put him back in the closet until Jan 5th. There will be no coming out until top of Q1. Not on my watch LMAO."
A few minutes later, Azealia shared a separate post that read, "I TOLD Y'ALL JOE BUDDEN WAS MUNCHING BIRD." In a following Story, the "Anna Wintour" rapper wrote, "PROSTATE JOE."
Over the years, Azealia and Joe have had a rocky relationship. Before celebrating the podcaster and saying that he "saved" her back in 2018, Azealia was at odds with Joe for his comments about Nicki Minaj.
Azealia has also made many comments about Joe supposedly not being comfortable with his sexuality, which is something that he has rarely addressed. On Thursday, November 4, he seemingly revealed the truth by informing listeners of his podcast that he likes men and women, coming out as bisexual.
"I'm bisexual," he said during Episode 485: "Y'all Must Be New Here". "How do I spread this news? How do I spread the word? Yo, listen, I like guys and girls. Spread the word. I'm down." As if that wasn't enough, Joe took to his Twitter account to write, "Ahhhhhhh, i see the word got out!! Continue to spread the word pls."
