Banks has made her disdain for Azalea public on more than one occasion and when a New York grand jury made the decision not to indict an NYPD officer involved in the reported choke-hold death of Eric Garner yesterday, Banks was quick to attack Azalea for her lack of comments on the situation.
Taking to Twitter, Banks blasted Azalea for not caring about "black issues." In a lengthy rant, the rapper went on to call out her nemesis.
its funny to see people Like Igloo Australia silent when these things happen... Black Culture is cool, but black issues sure aren't huh?— AZEALIA ⚓️ BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) December 4, 2014

She then added this rather vicious comment, "Don't just be down to ride Black Dick...If you with us you WITH US."

Banks continued to rip into the Australian rapper some more, saying that the world needs to stop comparing her to Nicki Minaj and that by doing so it is belittles black culture.
And the media needs to STOP trying to move igloo in on what Nicki has established.— AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) December 4, 2014
Banks added, "Nicki is a hard-working rap-BEAST. stop trying to degrade and BELITTLE Our culture with this f***ing kkk iggy shit."
The point that Banks is trying to get across with her profanity-filled rant is that she feels Azalea should be publicly outraged over the decision that the grand jury made on Wednesday, because she feels that Azalea owes her success to the black community.
Azalea did decide to eventually respond to Banks' comments, but in a very relaxed way, saying that "world issues shouldnt be used as a poor excuse to promote fan battles."
Theres more to sparking a change than trolling on social media. World issues shouldnt be used as a poor excuse to promote fan battles.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) December 4, 2014
Make sure you do something to let YOUR government know how you feel when something is unjust., not JUST your followers on twitter...— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) December 4, 2014
Also try not to judge anothers support or 'lack there of' solely on if they have ranted on twitter about it, thats not right or helpful.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) December 4, 2014
The world is too hung up on what is or isnt said on twitter. theres an actual world out there and multiple ways you can promote change.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) December 4, 2014
