Azealia Banks Addresses Eric Garner Decision And Takes Shots At Iggy Azalea; Iggy Responds

After the grand jury decided not to indict NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo on criminal charges in the choke hold death of unarmed man Eric Garner, many celebrities reacted with hurt and disbelief. Entertainers like Diddy, Mack Wilds, Macklemore, Big Boi and many more took to social media to express their condolences and dissatisfaction with the decision. Azealia Banks also took to Twitter to address the decision.

The Broke With Expensive Taste rapper then directed her attention at her nemesis Iggy Azalea and questioned where the Aussie femcee was during this turbulent time of injustice.

The “212” rapper then gave Iggy’s mentor a warning.

This morning Iggy responded.

Theres more to sparking a change than trolling on social media. World issues shouldnt be used as a poor excuse to promote fan battles.

Make sure you do something to let YOUR government know how you feel when something is unjust., not JUST your followers on twitter…

Make sure you sign petitions, hit the streets and protest or donate to groups helping to support and rebuild the community too.

Also try not to judge anothers support or ‘lack there of’ solely on if they have ranted on twitter about it, thats not right or helpful.

The world is too hung up on what is or isnt said on twitter. theres an actual world out there and multiple ways you can promote change.

Also the fact the actual link i posted about helping has the LEAST RT’s on my timeline lets me know your real concern is not awareness.

— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) December 4, 2014

CLEARLY your CONCERN is finding any reason to promote shade, trolling, fan fights and memes. I know you guys by now, you don’t fool me.
