Azealia Banks Responds to Criticism Over ‘Whiteface’ Photo
In her latest episode of social media controversy, the Harlem rapper dismissed criticism brought on by a photo she posted on Instagram yesterday (Jan. 2).
The image, which is captioned “Whiteface,” features Banks’s face covered in white makeup, causing many commenters to question her motive. She later explained on Twitter that the look had nothing to do with race. It was actually from a video shoot for the song "Ice Princess" off her Broke With Expensive Taste debut. “This was not white face, this is my Ice Princess makeup. Calm tf down. LOL.”
