‘Y’all Country Is Nuts’: Citing Racism, U.S. Rapper Azealia Banks Vows to ‘Never Ever Ever’ Visit Israel Again
American rapper Azealia Banks vowed on Wednesday never to visit Israel again, claiming she encountered racism while in the country for her show in Tel Aviv on Monday.
Banks said she was treated badly on account of her skin color on multiple occasions, claiming that a rabbi sitting next to her on the plane offered her money for sex, and that service vendors in Tel Aviv treated her badly because she’s black. She also said she was held up at Ben-Gurion International Airport because of her skin color.
“I will never ever ever ever ever go to Israel again. I love my fans but y’all gonna have to fly out to come see me because y’all country is nuts,” Banks tweeted.
