Nick Cannon Prays for Azealia Banks After She Claims She Was Shamed for Her Complexion on ‘Wild ‘n Out’
On Sunday (July 15), Azealia Banks blasted the folks at Nick Cannon's show, Wild 'n Out, after claiming she was shamed for her complexion during a taping of the show. Cannon has now responded to claims made about his crew.
As previously reported, Banks hopped on Instagram and recounted her visit to the show which didn't turn out like she expected. "I did Wildin’ out today. There were tons of pre-planned colorist jokes and of course .... cry baby cried," she captioned a photo from the set. "Some little scrawny black Atlanta twink was prepared for me. They planned this - hit me on short notice, told me I didn’t have to participate in the coon ass freestyle battles ,(not my style) and I was to sing my song and go home."
She added some name calling of her own while further recounting the situation. "I show up and some guy who’s darker than me starts calling me ugly and being colorist, then all of a sudden a choir of the most disgustingly basic, local, cattle call 'urban' pseudo comedic 'FAT BECause You sit in a chair all day' greasy soul food induced south of the mason Dixon ,self hatred," she added. "Ass It#backwards, post-Jim crow , post traumatic slave disorder true self esteem less, Ward of the state CLOWNS with their low scale and highly UNimpressive resumes, start going off about how the beautiful Azealia Banks looks! I’ve never felt so much hate and rage for anyone else than I did in that moment. Yemaya was really on stage."
Cannon has caught wind of the claims and responded on IG. Captioning a screenshot from Banks' Instagram story where she questioned if she resorted to making fun of Nick having a disorder would she be wrong, Nick wrote: "Don’t you hate when you create your own storms but forget your umbrella??? @azealiabanks We are praying for you Queen #speedyrecovery #Healing. She #Wildnout for real #Karma."
The format of the Wild 'n Out show pits teams against each other in what can at times be a brutal jonesing session. Either Banks didn't get the memo or things may have been taken too far. Maybe we'll get to see when the episode airs.
