After Banks ridiculed Bristol in a so-called “apology” letter to her mom, Sarah Palin, amid an ongoing feud between the rapper and the former Alaska governor, Bristol took to her Patheos blog to respond.
In a post titled “Azealia, which of your songs will teach me your values?” Bristol writes:
“I want to start off this post by saying I would never wish any of these threats on Azealia’s mother (or anyone’s mother for that matter).
She said the best thing to happen to my mom is if she was gang raped by a group of black men.
‘Honestly… Let’s find the biggest burliest blackest negroes and let them run a train on her. Film it and put it on worldstar.’
It is unfortunate people in my generation think they can do, and say, whatever they wish without any sort of consequence. There are consequences for every action you make Miss Bank$, and there will be consequences for your unimaginable threats.
I am not going to waste another minute of my day addressing you, but I will finish my post by addressing what you said in regards to my children.
This is your quote:
‘If Bristol Palin listened to my music she probably wouldn’t have all those cotdamn kids!!!! ;-P #sis #iud #stayinschool #causeitsthebest.’
So, I looked up your lyrics.
Which song should I have been listening too? ‘Hood Bitch,’ ‘P-U-S-S-Y,’ ‘Queen of Clubs,’ ‘Grand Scam,’ or ‘Big Talk?’
Just let me know.”
“I’ve had enough of the unanswered threats and attacks against my family and me,” Palin told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. “So, for the first time I’m going to enjoy the only retribution some protected ‘celebrities’ seem to understand – I’m suing Azealia Banks and can’t wait to share my winnings with others who have gone defenseless against lies and dangerous attacks far too long.”
Banks responded to Sarah’s statement within hours by posting a lengthy letter of apology on her Tumblr account, insisting that she was “completely kidding” about her initial comments and denying saying Sarah should be raped.
But Banks followed up her letter with more insults in the postscripts (including the jab at Bristol) and in a series of tweets.
“When you’re a public figure who courts attention, you can’t sue ppl for making jokes. Freedom of Speech girllllyyyyy,” Banks tweeted.
