Check out Iggy Azalea's awesome response to Eminem's offensive lyrics targeting her

Stand down, Eminem. Iggy Azalea isn't taking any of your crap.

5 Reasons why Iggy Azalea's "Beg For It" is our new anthem

Veteran rapper, Eminem, has a definite history of showing some real disrespect to women. From just calling them expletives in his music, like when he famously called Christina Aguilera a B back in the day, to threatening them with real violence, like just last week, when he rapped that he would punch Lana Del Rey in the face "like Ray Rice" in a video of a freestyle show, we really shouldn't be surprised anymore that he's continuing to target women with his music — though we're definitely still disgusted by his attitude.

But Eminem's latest target isn't going to take it lying down. Iggy Azalea fired back at the 8 Mile rapper after "Vegas," a song of his that allegedly leaked online, seemed to threaten her with sexual assault.

The lyrics say, "So what's it gon' be? Put that shit away, Iggy/You don't wanna blow that rape whistle on me/Scream I love it/Before I get lost with gettin' off."

As upsetting as those lyrics are, Azalea took it all in stride, calling Eminem out on Twitter by saying she was "bored of the old men threatening young women as entertainment trend and much more interested in the young women getting $ trend" and drove home her point with a long line of "z"s.

Azalea is fresh off a nasty social media feud with Snoop Dogg, but she won that fight and clearly wasn't interested in breaking her streak this time around.

She went on to call Eminem out for being a really awful role model for her younger brother, who she says is a fan of the rapper, and she signed off by casually mentioning her upcoming appearance on Good Morning America.
