According to Azealia Banks, she had a less than welcoming experience during her taping of Wild n Out.
The Harlem rapper took to Instagram story to share a lengthy reaction to her appearance. She claims that the entire thing was already set up, and they were making some insensitive jokes that brought her to the point of tears.
“I did Wildin’ out today. There were tons of pre-planned colorist jokes and of course …. cry baby cried,” she captioned a photo from the set. “Some little scrawny black Atlanta twink was prepared for me. They planned this – hit me on short notice, told me I didn’t have to participate in the coon a** freestyle battles, (not my style) and I was to sing my song and go home.”
She continued, “I show up and some guy who’s darker than me starts calling me ugly and being colorist, then all of a sudden a choir of the most disgustingly basic, local, cattle call ‘urban’ pseudo comedic ‘FAT BECause You sit in a chair all day’ greasy soul food induced south of the mason Dixon ,self hatred. Ass It#backwards, post-Jim crow , post traumatic slave disorder true self esteem less, Ward of the state CLOWNS with their low scale and highly UNimpressive resumes, start going off about how the beautiful Azealia Banks looks! I’ve never felt so much hate and rage for anyone else than I did in that moment. Yemaya was really on stage.”
Considering that the Hip Hop improv show is centered around roasting each other, there’s a good chance that Azealia didn’t think the jokes were funny and went too far.
Nick Cannon responded on Instagram, but Banks made a less than tasteful clap back.
