Azealia Banks has a knack for dropping offensive slurs and engaging in pointless celebrity feuds. On Sunday she once again stumbled into Unpopular Opinionville, this time with Rihanna.  

It started with a tweet from Rihanna, in which she called the news of Trump‘s hasty immigration ban—which sparked worldwide protests this weekend—”devastating.”

Elsewhere, musicians were making real calls to action in regards to the executive order: Grimes tweeted that she would match donations to CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), and Sia said she would match donations to the ACLU.
