Rapper Azealia Banks continues to showcase her talent for putting her foot in her mouth on Twitter, this time calling for former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to be gang-raped by black men, and for the assault to be filmed and posted on the internet.

"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," the Broke With Expensive Taste artist, 24, wrote on Twitter. "Hideous. At least suck a nigga dick or something before you start talking shit about 'black people willingly accepting slavery.' Least she can do."

 

The tweets are now deleted, but Banks appears to have based her vulgar rant on a satirical article from the website Newslo. The satire site states that the former governor said, "I'm telling you, I've been saying it for years, but nobody's listening – slavery wasn't forced onto African-Americans, they accepted it willingly." 

On Tuesday, Banks issued Palin an apology on her Tumblr page, saying she was "completely kidding" and that she actually really likes Palin. "You're very passionate about the things you believe in, super determined, and most certainly aware of who you are and where you stand in this world, as a parent, as a politician, but most importantly, as a woman," Banks wrote. "All in All, Woman to Woman, I hope you will accept my sincerest apology."

In March, Banks called a paparazzo a "faggot" after she appeared in court for an assault charge, according to the NY Daily News.

Banks is no stranger to controversy when it comes to fellow artists, too: She challenged rapper Kanye West during his Grammys tweet-storm that didn't include any women, and took on rapper Iggy Azalea over her lack of response during the Eric Garner case.
