Azealia Banks Calls Lizzo a ”Millennial Mammy” and Says That She Is “Making a Fool Of Her Black Self For a White American Public” [PHOTOS]

While everyone is congratulating Lizzo for her #1 single, “Truth Hurts”, Azealia Banks is throwing major shade her way.

In a series of cruel Instagram comments, Azealia dragged Lizzo for being a “millennial mammy.” She wrote:

“Lmao the fact that the public and the media has been keeping this fat girl joke going for so long is honestly peak boredom,” said Banks, holder of zero Hot 100 top 10 singles. “The song is not good, nor is the dumpy fat girl spectacle live set she does. Saddest bit is that the girl is legit talented and truly only being allowed to shine so long as she allows herself to be this millennial mammy of sorts.”

She continued,

“Like illiterate Cardi then fat Lizzo. They are really choosing the worst of the black womens crop to advertise America with. I guess they saw us moving too fast with it because if you realize, after Beyoncé became political in ways they didn’t like the elite stopped giving her that top top spot and started cycling out these lessers like Cardi and Lizzo (even Lil Nas X trash ass buckbreak mountain anthem) giving them Beyoncé level accolades while both being no where near the level of black female excellence she is.”

I want Azealia to put more energy into her own music than worrying about what other artists are doing. It’s exhausting to keep seeing her drag different people who are doing better than her in their careers.

What do you think about Azealia’s rant?
