Sarah Palin Azealia Banks Controversy: Palin Suing Banks Over Twitter Rants; Rapper Issued Long Letter Of Apology
Sarah Palin and Azealia Banks have been crossing swords lately. Banks issued a long letter of apology over her profanity-filled Twitter rants after Palin said that she will sue the controversial rapper.
People reported that the former governor of Alaska said she'll take legal action against Banks. Palin will be doing it "on behalf of all reasonable woman." Palin opted for the legal route after rapper Banks suggested on social media that the 52-year-old politician should be gang-raped. Feeling that it was the final straw, Palin issued a statement saying she's had enough of the threats and attacks against her family.
Palin said that she will "enjoy the only retribution some protected 'celebrities' seem to understand." She added, "I'm suing Azealia Banks and can't wait to share my winnings with others who have gone defenseless against lies and dangerous attacks far too long."
While Banks' Twitter rants were so feisty so as to irk Palin enough to seek legal recourse, the rapper became so apologetic after Palin announced her intention to sue Banks. She posted the letter on her Tumblr account.
Banks emphasized that she apologizes for whatever emotional distress she may have caused Palin, albeit she also made some justifications as to her actions. She said that although the article was a satire, the statement "Even the French understand that Slavery wasn't our fault because the negroes liked it," would be enough to elicit a negative response.
According to Fox News, the Twitter rants of Banks were filled with so much profanity that some of them could not even be mentioned. One of the tweets of Banks which was captured by Breitbart was "Honestly... Let's find the biggest burliest blackest negroes and let them run a train on her. Film it and put it on worldstar."
Azealia Banks' lengthy letter of apology to Sarah Palin might have put an end to the scathing statements issued by both parties. However, Banks still ended her letter with another remark that may still enrage Palin. It went like this, "P.S.: -I am an EXTREMELY intelligent woman, Mrs. Palin... Twitter is not real, neither is your opinion of me!... If Bristol Palin listened to my music she probably wouldn't have all those [damn] kids!!!!"
