Azealia Banks: I\'m Boycotting Dolce & Gabbana
From Kanye West to A$AP Rocky, high fashion and rap tend to get along. That is until a giant fashion house like Dolce & Gabbana has to kill the party with ignorant jewelry designs that spark accusations of racism.

Where you were thisclose to intentionally forgetting about D&G’s Summer 2013 collection which included a pair of controversial blackamoor earrings and prints, 21-year-old rapper Azealia Banks is just hearing about them and she’s pissed.

The “212” internet sensation and fashion fan herself—she just performed at the Just Cavalli store opening in Italy—had some strong verbiage for the brand as evidenced by a few tweets she sent out over the weekend where she did what she hardly ever shies away from: speaking her mind and never mincing words.

“Definitely boycotting Dolce & Gabanna [sic],” she wrote, adding, “Whoever designed that racist ass Dolce and Gabanna [sic] collection needs a swift kick in the mouth and a big dick up the ass.”

But before anyone could direct her to D&G’s roundabout way of trying to explain its intent with a lecture of blackamoors in relation to Sicilian history as they tried to do first following the debacle, Azealia was putting on a “save it, Dolce” attitude, jumping ahead with the tweet: “I really hate when people do corny, racist things then try to justify it as ‘art’” and “It’s all just really unnecessary. the clothes in the collection were fine without all the ‘black mammie’ imagery.” If they didn't in the summer, D&G proooooobably got the message this time.
