Woops, Says Azealia Banks (Again)


After reading a spoof article where Sarah Palin was quoted as being a tad more incendiary than usual, Azealia Banks suggested via tweet that the former vice presidential candidate be sexually assaulted in a whole bunch of ways. Palin reacted by threatening a suit, and now Banks is eating her tweets (again). Moral of the story: 1) do your research before you interpret a satirical article as fact, 2) stop yourself before you cyberbully, 3) really stop yourself before you cyberbully someone with a legal team, and 4) maybe focus on music, at some point.
