How was your weekend? Azealia Banks' was pretty chill, just laying down some casual thoughts about Sarah Palin on the Twitters. Her since-deleted April 3 tweets went like this (warning, you can't ever unread this, and it's right up there with Banks' cry for "slavemaster" Iggy Azalea to commit suicide):

"Sarah Palin needs to have her hair shaved off to a buzz cut, get headfucked by a big, veiny, ashy black dick then be locked in a cupboard. Hideous. At least suk a n---a dick or summ' before you start talking about 'black people willingly accepting slavery'. Least she can do. Honestly... Let's find the biggest burliest blackest negroes and let them run a train on her. Film it and put it on worldstar."

On Facebook, former Alaska governor shared a blog post titled "Rapper Azealia Banks Calls for Sarah Palin to Be Gang-Raped by Black Men" and accompanied it with a lengthy response:

"Hey Female Rapper - listen up, little darling. No one has any idea what you're wigging out about in these bizarre, violent rants against me, but you're obviously not exercising enough intelligence to acknowledge you've been sucked into believing some fake interview in which I supposedly offered comments representing the antithesis of my truth.

In this life, you're blessed to have been given an influential platform. So have I. Why don't we strengthen both our platforms and work together on something worthwhile - like condemning racism, along with empowering young women to defend themselves against a most misogynist, degrading, devastating assault perpetrated by evil men - rape. 

Thanks. And now I'll go through my young daughter's playlist to make sure there hasn't been any inadvertent addition of any anti-woman, pro-rape garbage that you seem to endorse, which perpetuates the cultural challenges we face in America. I encourage other parents to do the same. 

God bless you Ms. Banks, as you consider a change of heart.
- Sarah Palin"

That's all for now—hopefully. While we you watch Banks' and Palin's social media spots through the fingers clutched over your eyes, listen to Fuse's Back of the Class podcast talk about Azealia v. Iggy at the 6:35 mark in the episode below:
