BTW
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.” 

In a now-deleted Instagram post, Banks wrote that Rihanna and “all the rest of the celebrities who are using their influence to stir the public, you lot really REALLY need to shut up and sit down.” She added that people need to “[s]top chastising the president.” 

the face you make when you a immigrant 🇧🇧 #stayawayfromthechickens #iheartnuggets #saveourhens.

The hashtags in Rihanna’s post are apparently a nod to the rumor that Banks sacrifices chickens in her closet, which Banks acknowledged in another post.

Then there was this apparent subtweet. (Subgram?)

Banks reportedly posted Rihanna’s phone number on social media, though it has also been deleted.

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.
