*Well look who’s apologizing.
After catching much heat for her over the top and racist tweets from the public and then being banned (suspended) by Twitter, Azealia Banks is now apologizing to the “world” for her racist and homophobic tweets.
It was last Thursday that Banks’ Twitter account was taken away from her after she attacked Zayn Malik, calling him a “n*g*a” and “f*gg*t” and his mother a “dirty refugee.” On top of that she was also lost her gig at an upcoming London music festival. The afore mentioned penalties apparently knocked some sense into her. At least enough for her to claim she’s sorry for her “unacceptable” behavior.
Dear World, Now that the immediacy of the infamous incident has worn off, I’ve had some time to decompress & take a more rational assessment of things. I want to extend my sincerest apologies to the world. Employing racial/sexual slurs/stereotypes in attempts to make fun of or degrade another person or group is absolutely unacceptable and is not fair or fun for anyone. Allowing my anger to get the best of me, I’ve managed to insult millions of people without reason. And for that I give my deepest apologies.
See her original apology below via Instagram, where she hasn’t been cut off. Yet.
As Gossip Cop points out, Banks’s verbal assault directed at Malik was just the latest in a string of offensive remarks she’s made on Twitter. Other celebrity targets of the singer have included Beyonce, Nicki Minaj. Lady Gaga, Iggy Azalea, and even Sarah Palin, to name a very few. Her suspension, however, was greeted with delight. News of Banks being shut out of Twitter led to the trending topic “#AzealiaGotSuspendedParty.”
So far her apology hasn’t meant a whole lot to Twitter because (as of this posting) her account is still turned off.
