Shade O' The Week: Iggy And Azealia's Twitter War

The issue is appropriating black culture but not supporting it.

Oh boy - some shade is being thrown at Iggy Azalea and she's throwing it right back! 

Azealia Banks, a rapper, singer, and songwriter raised in Harlem, is calling out white artists who appropriate black culture and then fail to stand up for black issues and civil rights. 

She's especially fired up about yesterday's grand jury decision not to indict the police officer who killed Eric Garner with an illegal chokehold.  She threw some big-time twitter shade at Iggy Azalea: 


Iggy Azalea, real name Amethyst Amelia Kelly, didn't take the slam lightly and answered back: 

She also tweeted a link to an article titled: 5 WAYS YOU CAN HELP FERGUSON, ITS PROTESTERS, AND MIKE BROWN'S FAMILY

Banks tweeted back:  

The Twitter war is continuing with fans jumping in on Team Azealia or Team Iggy. Follow the hashtag #IglooAustralia to check out the action and weigh in yourself.
