Although she deactivated her Twitter account, Banks is still on Instagram. When a fan asked her why she canceled her tour with K. Michelle in 2015, the “212” rhymer wrote back to clarify the situation and throw K. Michelle under the bus.
“I didn’t cancel the tour Michelle did,” she wrote in a now deleted post. “Unfortunately, f—ing around with that bird bitch put me in a horrible position with my fans and with my promoters.”
A day prior to dissing K. Michelle, Banks had some choice words for Rihanna who she criticized as a poor dancer. The rapper commented on RiRi’s Instagram post of Rihanna and two dancers voguing on her Anti World Tour. The Shade Room captured a remark that Banks left on a post in which she called Rihanna “lazy” and not a “competent dancer.”
When a fan responded by telling Banks to stop causing drama, she replied, “It’s only drama to you! You’re taking my observations as drama when it’s not.”
“It saddens me to see someone with such a huge platform just be so lazy and complacent with their craft,” she added. “Just lifting style off of other girls’ back without even putting the proper love or energy into it. Vogue is art and it should be respected as such.”
Both K. Michelle and Rihanna have yet to comment on Azealia Banks’ critiques.
