Azealia Banks came under fire on Monday afternoon after posting a photo on Instagram of herself in what appeared to be whiteface. Rocking a red and white polka dot bandana and blue contact lenses, the smiling rapper stares into the camera with a white powdered face. She captioned the image:
After some seemingly heavy backlash, the rapper took to Twitter to defend her photo, claiming she was transforming into the Ice Princess. However, as Banks explained her Instagram post, both feet ended up in her mouth.
By the way, the wikipedia definition of misogynoir Banks is referring to is: “Misogynoir” is a portmanteau term coined by quire black feminist scholar Moya Bailey. Misogynoir refers to anti-black misogyny, where race and gender together are factors in the hatred of black women. Bailey created the term to address misogyny directed toward black women in American visual and popular culture.
