A few days ago, Lana Del Rey had commented on Kanye Wests appearance on Saturday Night Live, saying in an Instagram comment that " Trump becoming our president was a loss for our country but your support of him is a loss for the culture". Kanye had gone on the show wearing a make America great again hat and openly spoke out about his support for trump and how he doesn't like that people are bullying him into not supporting trump. Azealia Banks saw Lana's comment and did not like what was said so she took to twitter to let it be known.
Azealia didn't tweet at Lana just once but multiple times indirectly and directly stating her dislike for Lana's comments and for Lana in general. She started off saying, " tired of white women in Hollywood and their fake ass innocent agendas" and continued on for a few more tweets.
Lana Del Rey did not respond back to the singer until days later saying, "I won't not f*ck you the f*ck up. Period" and then tweeted, "Banks. u coulda been the greatest female rapper alive but u blew it. dont take it out on the only person who had ur back".
Fans started to notice the fight between the two singers and instantly started taking sides commenting on Azealias tweets saying Lana checked her and put her in her place. Lana Del Rey continued to tweet and mentioned Banks this time saying "@shopcheapyxo u know the addy. pull up anytime. say it to my face. But if i were you- I wouldnt".
This only infuriated Banks even more and made her go on another twitter rant tweeting at Del Rey multiple times demanding that she send her the address so she could pull up, all while making fun of her physical appearance. She also stated that as a black woman if she had threatened Lana over the internet the way she threatened her she would've tried to have her arrested but as a white woman no ones saying Lana Del Rey is wrong for bringing violence into the conversation.
Kanye and Azealia haven't always been on good terms but they are now so that is why Azealia felt the need to defend him. She even tweeted a screen shot of their text convo talking about her argument with Lana Del Rey.
