Sarah Palin To Sue Azealia Banks Over Rape Threats



Sarah Palin, in an interview with people magazine has announced that she is suing failed rapper, Azealia Banks over her comments about the gang raping of Palin.  Palin made it clear that not only is she suing but that she plans on using any proceeds of such a lawsuit to help women without the funds to fight back against such terroristic threats.  Palin explains why she is suing:

“I’ve had enough of the unanswered threats and attacks against my family and me.  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.”

On Monday, the failed rapper made these tweets:

“Sarah Palin needs to have her hair shaved off to a buzz cut, get headf—ked by a big veiny, ashy, black d—k then be locked in a cupboard.

“Honestly… Let’s find the biggest burliest blackest n—es and let them run a train on her. Film it and put it on worldstar.”

On Tuesday Palin in an open letter gave banks a piece of her mind, which I found to be generous.  Someone with so much sharing with someone with so little.  Palin says that Banks “engages in a form of racism and hate that is celebrated by some in the perverted arm of pop culture, but is condemned by those who know it’s tearing our country apart.”

“Others may keep turning a blind eye to problems like Azealia’s mouth; I choose to take a stand against it and the double standards that result in her actually being rewarded for her divisive tactics and aggressively inciting violence.”

Banks has now issued an apology of sorts:

“I want to start this letter off by telling you that I actually, really like you.  While many other American people may see you as someone to be ridiculed, I truly believe that you possess a certain “je ne sais quoi,” 

“I sincerely apologize for any emotional distress or reputational scarring i may have caused you,” Banks added. “In my honest defense, i was completely kidding. I happen to have a really crass, New-York-City sense of humor, and regularly make silly jokes in attempts make light of situations which make me uncomfortable. As the fabric of the American Nation is EMBEDDED with racism, I merely made a raCIALly driven joke to counter what i believed to be real, raCIST rhetoric.”

The apology may have come way too late.  Palin’s complete statement and Bank’s apology
