Donald Trump, who is referred to as “a controversial billionaire” in the media is currently running to become the next president of the United States and the Republican candidate has found support in the outspoken pop star.
Trump has made statements during his campaign that some members of the Muslim and Latino communities have found deeply offensive. Even when a Twitter follower accused the presidential hopeful of being racist, the 24-year-old 212 hit-maker came to his defence.
In fact, according to a report, “Azealia, is a die-hard fan who has publicly shamed fellow artists Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora in the past after accusing them of black cultural appropriation. She even dubbed herself a bigot in defence of the wannabe politician”.
Azealia wrote on her Twitter account May 7, 2016: “I told you guys (democratic U.S. presidential candidate) Bernie Sanders didn’t have the clout. i (sic) told you all he wasn’t going to be the nominee.”
“So am I ! …. lol,” she tweeted in response to a fan who accused Trump of being a racist.
“Racism/Racialism is sewn into the fabric of our nation. It’s just who the f**k we are.”
“Trying to be all PC and pretending as if we aren’t racial/racist is not good for culture. Censorship is boring,” she added.
“Censorship is trash. Television and Movies are even boring now because of it. No one can say anything anymore.”
Although some fans praised Azealia for speaking out on the presidential race, one follower in particular did not approve of her statements, writing: “I used to like @AZEALIABANKS until her homophobia, internalized racism, & internalized sexism became overwhelming”.
Another tweeter suggested to the star, “@AZEALIABANKS girl you need some therapy or some s**t. you said your mother didn’t hug you as a child and I think it’s taking a toll on you.”
The rapper Azealia Banks didn’t hesitate in responding to criticisms against her endorsement of Donald Trump for U.S.President, she replied: “A poor excuse. a dismissal instead of understanding what i’m saying, you refuse to think for yourself.”
