Azealia Banks is leaving social media — again. But this time, the 25-year-old says it’s “for good.”
“I’m seriously tired of peoples feelings,” read Banks’ latest Facebook post. “I’m tired of seeing their overly sensitive reactions and responses to everything. I’m tired of having everything I say or do be monitored and I’m tired of being told how I should be behaving.”
“I’m quitting Facebook, and any other form of social media that allows me to engage with people,” she continued. “My legacy can’t live and die on the Internet.”
She closed with the foreboding: “Goodbye. For good.”
This isn’t the first time Banks decided to announce that she was “leaving” social media behind. Back in March, the interwebs rejoiced when Banks said she was done with Twitter. There was even an #AzealiaBanksDeactivatedParty. And it’s not hard to understand why.
Between throwing racial slurs at Zayn Malik (which later got her banned from Twitter) and getting into Twitter beefs with just about everyone including Erykah Badu, Skai Jackson and Sarah Palin, Banks started to become known more for controversy than her music. Recently, she’s also been under-fire after fans discovered she uses skin bleaching creams. Here’s hoping that she’ll finally be able to find peace and get back to her craft. Although this may not be the last time spectators get to catch Banks antics. She’s rumored to be a contender for the next season of Celebrity Big Brother.
