AceShowbiz - Azealia Banks is known for her ramblings and unfounded claims on social media, but this time she's made use of her platform to highlight the importance of Juneteenth. The musician's message was particularly directed at Candace Owens after the latter criticized President Joe Biden's decision to recognize the celebration of emancipation of African American slaves as a federal holiday.
Being enraged after catching winds of Candace's tweet, Azealia posted a lengthy rant on her Instagram account. "According to this logic, on July 4, 1776, you would still be enslaved," she wrote as the caption on a screenshot post of Candace's tweet. She then broke down her fantasy of slavery, "Most likely on the verge of starvation due to all of America's food supply having been prioritized for the war…"
She continued in the now-deleted post, "…while you hand sew American flags and struggle to wet nurse some depressed 24-year-old white widow's sickly child until your nipples are chapped and dry. Whereafter, you will be whipped by her 80-year-old uncle for your own malnourishment and inability to produce milk, then sent to toil over a wood-burning stove - blistering your hands while [being] forced to make a peasantly meal of biscuits and gravy."
"You will be watched closely by her irate, sunburned and whisky soaked 80 year old uncle to be sure you do not sneak a single biscuit or fingerful of roux to yourself," the "212" rhymer went on claiming, "after you've watched everyone eat, you will be sent to do the cleaning up. Your last task will be brushing the stressed and balding white widows hair to prepare for her sleeping bonnet, a deep rest in her comfortable canopy bed. Next your final descent down the stairs and out the back door where you proudly sleep on a bed bug infested pile of hay in a 6×4 cabin you share with 4 other slaves. Happy Independence Day @realcandaceowens."
Azealia didn't stop there as she took to her Instagram Stories to tell Candance to "let people have their day." She went on accusing the conservative political commentator, "You're really picking on old Black people [for] weird, white internet users, for their entertainment. Is that what it means to be a Black conservative? That's not what it means to be a Black conservative, that you just poke fun at Black people. B***h, that's not it."
Azealia's lengthy rant at Candace was a response to the Republican pundit's tweet on Thursday, June 17 which read, "Juneteenth is soooo lame. Democrats really need to stop trying to repackage segregation. I'll be celebrating July 4th and July 4th only. I'm American."
