Prolific tweeter and occasional artist Azealia Banks has deleted her infamous Twitter account. The “212” rapper warned her 549,000 or so followers she was calling it quits shortly before she pulled the plug.
She wrote on Tuesday, March 8:
“Ok, today, i’m finally making the decision to eject from social media. american media culture is honestly so fucking disgusting and junky and complaining about it is not going to change it. reading shit, seeing stupid ass articles and dumb bitches/bros has just really filled me up with a lot of bad feelings. it’s been a great couple of years, sharing opinions and having conversations, but i think i will be so much happier just NOT looking at this. (Americans have the WORST taste in everything.) So my friends, its time to say goodbye once and for all to this account. This account will exist no more. Time for a bit of Mystery… Goodbye.”
But seriously, don’t hold your breath on this being the last we hear of Azealia Banks via social media. Albums do need to get promoted, after all.
For now, there’s always Instagram.
