I thought Iggy Azalea was going to cool it with the twitter beefing?
Okay, who thought that when Beyonce dropped the lyric “you better call Becky with the good hair” on Saturday night during HBO’s Lemonade, that Iggy would take issue? I guess I should have…? When Bey called out “Becky with the Good Hair” Iggy kept that in her little brain and on Monday night, one of her “fans” called her a racist and that’s when Iggy sort of had a meltdown, because… SHE’S A VICTIM OF RACISM, TOO. WHY?
Because people have called her Becky. Yep.
First, she responded by tweeting: “girl BYE. do you know how many time ppl have called me BECKY? it didnt have any kind of positive intention behind it. dont start. generalizing ANY race by calling them one sterotypical name for said race. i personally dont think is very cool, the end.” To which she got some replies, which you can read here.
BASICALLY, this is textbook white fragility, in that Iggy Azalea is a culturally appropriating, racially insensitive white Australian who honestly thinks she too is a victim of racism. For being called Becky. Gag me.
