Azealia Banks Blasts White Feminist Beyonce Critics: ‘GET OVER IT’
In what should be a shock to no one, outspoken Harlem rapper Azealia Banks has added her two cents to the ongoing controversy swirling around Beyonce's Super Bowl Halftime "Formation" performance.
Critics have bashed Bey for what they consider a "divisive" song and show, during which her backup dancers donned berets reminiscent of the Black Panthers and held their fists in the air. Everyone from Rudy Guiliani to a Milwaukee sheriff accused the singer of being anti-police, with comedian Owen Benjamin even going so far as to compare the Panthers to the Ku Klux Klan.
But Banks took aim squarely at white feminists who she feels have turned on Beyonce in the wake of the "Formation" song, video and halftime show.
"No shade I could honestly throw up in a box watching all these white women go in about the damn formation song," she tweeted. "SOMETHINGS ARE NOT FOR YOU HONEY!!! GET OVER IT. For f---s sake."
Beyonce has gotten a lot of support for her show -- even former members of the Panthers praised the star. "As an original member of the Black Panther Party I thank Beyonce for her courage to make a statement on National TV," posted William Johnson on the Facebook page of the National Alumni Association of the Black Panther Party. "I am sure she understood the backlash that would follow her performance @ the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl, so on behalf of The National Alumni Association of the Black Panther Party we thank you & salute you."
There are rumblings of a protest at NFL headquarters against Beyonce.
She may have annoyed much of Black Twitter with her Trump endorsement weeks ago, but check out what Azealia Banks had to say about Beyonce's critics in her series of tweets below:
