It's 2018 and Lana Del Rey just told Azealia Banks to pull up. This timeline is wild, guys.
Lana Del Rey and Azealia Banks appear to be locked in a serious Twitter feud and the memes about it are already iconic. What are they fighting about, you ask?
Funnily enough, Lana and Azealia are indeed fighting over the singer's Kanye West take down earlier this month.
After Kanye West's pro-Trump SNL rant, Lana addressed him on Instagram, writing "If you think it’s alright to support someone who believes it’s OK to grab a woman by the pussy just because he’s famous-then you need an intervention as much as he does."
Azealia Banks soon defended Kanye on Twitter via her cheapyxo account.
Wow okay Lana, this would be cute if you were consistent with your outrage and refused to collab with ASAP rocky who has physically assaulted women too. To me this just looks like the typical White woman taking using a weakened target to “pretend” to be an ally. https://t.co/34VEqiiy2t— CHEAPYXO (@SHOPCHEAPYXO) September 30, 2018
Things were pretty quiet on Lana's end, that is, before Oct. 9 when she tweeted "I won't not fuck you up".
Queen of double negatives.
I won’t not fuck you the fuck up. Period.— Lana Del Rey (@LanaDelRey) October 9, 2018
Lana also tweeted "you know the addy. Pull up anytime. Say it to my face. But if I were you-I wouldn't."
The internet quickly descended into FULL meme mode because, in the immortal words of Azealia Banks, "THE GIRLS ARE FIGHTING".
People knew things were TRULY about to heat up because two Gemini witches were in conflict.

Lana Del Rey and Azealia Banks are both self identified witches.
Lana confirmed that she'd used witchcraft to attempt to get rid of Donald Trump. Azealia Banks also talks about her witchcraft and once shared videos of herself cleaning the closet she used for brujería (the Spanish word for witchcraft).
People were shook at the randomness of it all.
Kanye likes Trump. Taylor is speaking out against systemic racism and homophobia. Lana Del Rey wants to throw hands at Azealia Banks. Bitch it's only Tuesday pic.twitter.com/mvaYVREAtC— The Gay Burn Book (@SouthernHomo) October 9, 2018

Is the simulation screwed up? Yes. But it's OUR screwed up simulation.
And folks had ideas about how the fight would go down.

brutus: u know the addy. Pull up anytime. Say it to my face. But if I were you- I wouldn’t.
Contrary to what you may have thought, Mercury is NOT currently in retrograde. This is just... how the simulation is now. As intriguing as the drama is, we hope the girls resolved the situation in the DMs or, at the very least, when Azealia Banks pulled up for that witch fight.
