In case you missed it, 24-year-old (soon to be 25) Azealia Banks had the audacity to go after 14-year-old Skai Jackson in a toe-to-toe twitter war. Although Jackson did start the conversation when she commented on Banks going after former ‘One Direction’ singer Zayn Malik, stating he stole her music video ideas, Banks went WAY too far with the comments.
Can someone please explain when it became okay to cuss out a kid and drag her mom into the mix? I remember the “yo mama” jokes from back in the day, but this is far from that! This was totally uncalled for, but Banks didn’t end there, she went on to degrade Jackson’s body. The average 14-year-old is already hormonally going through bodily changes and insecurities can run high. Body shaming anyone, let alone a child is just beyond my comprehension. The saying “pick on someone your own size” does come to mind.
The only positive I could find in this feud is that Jackson displayed some real #BlackGirlMagic in her ability to hold her own. She is clearly one girl who’s not going to allow the opinion of others to affect her shine. But we can’t forget that clearly Banks is going through something because this isn’t the first time she’s engaged in a Twitter war, but this one got her booted off a UK festival due to a racist slur she used while feuding with Zayn on Twitter.
I don’t know about you, but I’m protective of my money, and letting some pointless beef get between me and it, just isn’t good business.
UPDATE: Azealia Banks’ Twitter account has been suspended after her racially charged remarks towards Zayn and feud with Skai Jackson.
