Dear Azealia Banks, .
How do you sleep at night knowing that you verbally attacked a minor?
How do you as an artist in the entertainment business sleep well knowing that you tore down a young lady who’s trying to pursue and achieve her own dreams and goals?
How can you even think that it is okay for you to tell a 14 year old girl that she would need to get body enhancements?
See, people like you truly do not understand the impact of your actions. Do you remember being 14 years old? At 14, were you built like an Amazon woman or your body had yet to form into a more womanly shape? Do you even understand what it is to be 14 with the body of a 20-year-old?
My biggest hope and prayer is that your public actions do not cause for any young girl to think that because her body has not developed into the shape of what a woman’s body should look like at such young age means that they do not equate to the standard of beauty that people like you perpetuate. People like you are the reasons why these young girls hate themselves.People like you are part of the problem. People like you are the reasons I some of our young ladies of dying because they chose to go to someone’s house and get black-market enhancements.Did you know that there are tons of girls who wish to look like you? Honestly speaking you have a beautiful body yet you are of age to have “said body.” No one at any age to be bullied publicly simply because they made a comment on something that you chose to do publicly. It’s completely unreal that you as a grown woman with siblings would even go this far on a child. If you don’t want anybody butting into your business then it should have not been made for public consumption on an open forum that invites commentary.
You are a young beautiful black woman and you took the time to trash and dismantle and even younger beautiful black woman. The fact is is that being a female in the entertainment business is hard enough. Just to be a female that demands the respect that you deserve for the craft that you produce is a feat in itself. This girl you attacked works HARD at what she does, just as you do in your craft. Somehow you must have forgot that you two were once a 14-year-old girl wide-eyed and ready to share your gift. Somehow you forgot that you too were black woman.Somehow you forgot you were a woman.
What happens you being a voice of the youth? What happened to you presenting positive images for women in hip-hop? What happened to your fire? To me it seems like all of your anger and antics on nothing more than temper tantrums to gain attention. Even at your own shows people pay money to throw trash you. I know the you are once abused because you told us so and I guess those stars have never fully healed. So instead of you being a beacon of light standing up against all those who bully and abuse people, you my dear have became the attacker.How does it feel to know that you became exactly what you hated?
In this moment is where I stop openly supporting you, the bully. What you did cyber bully and I hope that that child’s mother presses charges against you for the disgusting things you spewed online. I pray that the child’s mother can be just as classy as her child was in deal with you accordingly because others may not be so kind. There comes a time when you need to own up to your mistakes and admit that you were wrong. There comes a time where accountability has to take place in your life. This is one of those times that you truly need to redeem yourself not only for you but for the young 14-year-old fans that you have. Teach them that has women we are not to tear each other down publicly but to band together and support one another.
Sadly after like if this letter ever got to you all you would do would do exactly what people expect you to do and that is act like a juvenile 14-year-old girl trapped in a grown woman’s body.
Which do you feel is better: being an intelligent 14-year-old who looks like a 14-year-old or being a 24 year old acting like a troublesome teen who never grew up?
I guess you already made your choice as many more fans will make theirs and leave your beautiful art to the side due the type of human you’ve decided to become.
Once a fan,
