The shade is real.
In case you missed it, last night Azealia Banks called out Iggy Azalea for staying silent on recent events which she called “black issues”. This is of course in regards to the recent Ferguson unrest and the decision not to indict the NYPD officers involved in the death of Eric Garner.
its funny to see people Like Igloo Australia silent when these things happen... Black Culture is cool, but black issues sure aren't huh?— AZEALIA ⚓️ BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) December 4, 2014
Not only did Azealia call Iggy out, she also gave her the best nickname of all time. Within one hour, Igloo Australia was trending worldwide.
Every person on twitter when AB tweeted the infamous line.
