Azealia Banks Deletes Her Twitter Account
Azealia Banks has deleted her Twitter account. The New York rapper went on a lengthy rant yesterday (March 8) explaining why she decided to get rid of social media presence before it went away, at least for the near future..
"Ok, today, I'm finally making the decision to eject from social media," Banks wrote. "American media culture is honestly so fucking disgusting and junky. And complaining about it is not going to change it."
Azealia Banks said that she was filled with "a lot of bad feelings" over what she saw on Twitter. The Broke With Expensive Taste rapper thinks she will be happier without the social networking service.
"Reading shit, seeing stupid ass articles and dumb bitches/bros has just really filled me up with a lot of bad feelings," she tweeted. "It's been a great couple of years, sharing opinions and having conversations, but I think I will be so much happier just not looking at this."
The Coco star gave her final goodbyes, but not before criticizing the tastes of Americans.
"It's time for me to say goodbye once and for all. Just because I am American doesn't mean I have to subject myself to such tastelessness. Americans have the worst taste in everything. So my friends, it's time to say goodbye once and for all to this account. This account will exist no more. Time for a bit of mystery... Goodbye."
So, it's the end of an era. Azealia Banks has engaged in some interesting Twitter beefs over the years as she's targeted everyone from Nicki Minaj to Action Bronson. Make sure you check out XXL's list of Banks' most memorable Twitter beefs.
