It’s a long-running feud that stretches back to December 2014 when Azealia accused Iggy of caring about black issues. In a recent interview, Iggy didn’t mince words as she made it clear there’s no love lost between the pair and Azealia has hit back in typical style. She took to Twitter to unleash her bile on Iggy even going as far as saying she wants to kill her.
In an interview with ELLE Canada, Iggy said: ‘We don’t like each other on a personal level, and that has gone on for many years—before the Black Lives Matter incident happened,’ she told the publication.
‘So when I dismissed her, people started to think that I dismissed the whole movement, but I wasn’t trying to dismiss Black Lives Matter—I was trying to dismiss her because it’s our personal s***.
She added: ‘I don’t think the subject matter of her tweet was invalid; I just think it was emotionally charged and driven by something else, and the whole thing got so misconstrued.
‘I just wish I had acknowledged the issue head-on because it made people think I don’t care about what’s going on socially and what’s happening in America, and I do care.’
Iggy concluded by saying that despite her regrets about how the feud played out, that doesn’t change her feelings towards Azealia.
‘Even though I still hate Azealia Banks, I wish I had said it in a way that didn’t make people think I was oblivious to the movement,’ she said.
Azealia Banks then clapped back on Twitter
