Social media fights are pretty common these days, and the last in date involves Sarah Palin and rapper Azealia Banks, a stupid feud between two very different women, which got more surrealist minute after minute. First, it started with fake news, when satirical news site Newslo posted a series of fake Palin quotes, you know the type of quotes that are so enormously racist it is difficult to imagine that even Palin could have said stuff like ‘Even The French Understand That Slavery Wasn’t Our Fault, Because The Negroes Liked It’… ‘Negroes loved being slaves and they were doing just fine under our rules. So, you see, you can’t really blame us for any of it, not legitimately.’
I don’t know why this website exist because it’s not even funny, but you know who apparently took notice? Azalea Banks, as she wrote to Palin on Twitter: ‘Let’s find the biggest burliest blackest negroes and let them run a train on her. Film it and put it on Worldstar.’ May be she wanted to be funny too, but it didn’t work and she since has deleted her tweet.
Strangely, Palin responded to Banks on Facebook, as there is nothing logical and rational in this story, calling her ‘Female Rapper,… little darling’, but for once Plain was making more sense than she ever has, trying to convince Banks to ‘work together on something worthwhile – like condemning racism, along with empowering young women to defend themselves against a most misogynist, degrading, devastating assault perpetrated by evil men – rape.’ Wow, was Palin,… sober for once?
But since, I repeat, there is absolutely no logic in this exchange, Banks took on Tumblr this time to apologize to Palin in ‘A Letter to Sarah Palin’… and this is the big surprise, Banks actually likes Palin?
‘I want to start this letter off by telling you that I actually, really like you,’ wrote Banks, ‘I truly believe that you possess a certain “je ne sais quoi,” …’There is something very charismatic and misunderstood about you. The misunderstood bit oftentimes reminds me of myself,’ she continues before saying, ‘I sincerely apologize for any emotional distress or reputational scarring i may have caused you’… ‘ In my honest defense, i was completely kidding. I happen to have a really crass, New-York-City sense of humor, and regularly make silly jokes in attempts make light of situations which make me uncomfortable’ … ‘I used the term “run a train,” which is slang for group sex, NOT for “rape.” There are many distinctions between the two. As a woman, I would never trivialize something as lewd and criminal to provide myself any sort of comic relief because it simply… just isn’t funny.’
And she went on and on, Banks did try vey hard to pass for a smart ass she is not… Why attacking Palin in this case as she was not responsible for these racist rant? Couldn’t she find something she said instead of this bad taste parody? ‘I am an EXTREMELY intelligent woman, Mrs. Palin’, Banks added. Who does she think she is? Donald Trump? Before ending her ‘apologies’ with another stab at Palin: ‘If Bristol Palin listened to my music she probably wouldn’t have all those cotdamn kids!!!!’
And so the saga was not over! Probably tired of social media, Palin declared to People magazine:
‘I’ve had enough of the unanswered threats and attacks against my family and me. So, for the first time I’m going to enjoy the only retribution some protected ‘celebrities’ seem to understand – 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.’
Banks should have never touched to Bristol and her offspring! What a stupid story! From Twitter to Facebook to Tumblr, starting with fake info, continuing with a fake joke and fake apologies and may be a fake lawsuit? Who knows?
‘LOL, if Sarah Palin actually decides to sue me i’ll only use the controversy to make myself an even larger American Cultural Figure,’ answered Banks on Twitter.
‘Twitter is not real’ she also said, and this is where she is wrong, there are countless people who lost their jobs after using Twitter inappropriately. I wonder whether Banks consider Tumblr real, and in this case does she or doesn’t she ‘like Palin’?? Banks is no stranger to fights, as for Palin, she may have another case of violence against women to deal with, as her son was arrested for battering his girlfriend about 2 months ago, and this time, this is way too real.
