Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin responded to rapper Azealia Banks on Facebook Tuesday, after Banks called for her to be gang-raped by a group of black men and then “locked in a cupboard.”
Citing a Breitbart News article over Banks’ deleted Twitter rant, Mrs. Palin responded by criticizing the controversial rapper for believing a satirical article from Newslo.com that quoted Palin as telling an Alaska publication that black people “accepted [slavery] willingly.” Palin wrote on her Facebook page:
Hey Female Rapper – listen up, little darling. No one has any idea what you’re wigging out about in these bizarre, violent rants against me, but you’re obviously not exercising enough intelligence to acknowledge you’ve been sucked into believing some fake interview in which I supposedly offered comments representing the antithesis of my truth.
In this life, you’re blessed to have been given an influential platform. So have I. Why don’t we strengthen both our platforms and work together on something worthwhile – like condemning racism, along with empowering young women to defend themselves against a most misogynist, degrading, devastating assault perpetrated by evil men – rape.
Thanks. And now I’ll go through my young daughter’s playlist to make sure there hasn’t been any inadvertent addition of any anti-woman, pro-rape garbage that you seem to endorse, which perpetuates the cultural challenges we face in America. I encourage other parents to do the same.
“God bless you Ms. Banks, as you consider a change of heart,” concluded Palin.
On Monday, Banks launched into an unprovoked tirade against Palin that called for her to be violently gang raped on camera and held captive by black men.
“Sarah Palin needs to have her hair shaved off to a buzz cut, get headf—ked by a big veiny, ashy black d—k then be locked in a cupboard,” Banks wrote on Twitter.
Moments later, Banks added: “At least suk a n—ga d—k or summ’ before you start talking s—t about black people ‘willingly accept slavery’. Least she can do.”
“Honestly, let’s find the biggest burliest blackest negroes and let them run a train on her. film it and put it on worldstar,” she concluded.
The Media Research Center captured screenshots of the posts before Banks deleted them.
After deleting the the tweets, Banks confirmed having written them to TheBlaze editor Oliver Darcy:
Newslo, a satirical news site, attributed Palin as saying: “I’m telling you, I’ve been saying it for years, but nobody’s listening – slavery wasn’t forced onto African-Americans, they accepted it willingly.”
