Azealia Banks claims she is quitting social media. Keep in mind, she’s said this a number of times.
The Harlem rapper took to Facebook earlier this week to make the announcement, saying her “legacy can’t live and die on the Internet”.
“I’m seriously tired of peoples feelings,” Banks wrote. “I’m tired of seeing their overly sensitive reactions and responses to everything. I’m tired of having everything I say or do be monitored and I’m tired of being told how I should be behaving. I’m quitting Facebook, and any other form of social media that allows me to engage with people. My legacy can’t live and die on the Internet. Goodbye. For good.”
Banks deleted her Twitter account back in March with a similar declaration, only to return not too long after. However, her account was suspended for making racist and homophobic slurs… which resulted in her being dropped from the annual Born & Bred Festival in May.
Despite “quitting” all forms of social media on Monday (Aug. 1), Banks has been active on Instagram up until press time.
In one of her IG updates, she posted a meme of actor Pete Davidson with the caption: “I don’t use social media, because I’m not mature enough to have it.”
