Iggy Azalea is no stranger to the press. Good or bad, Iggy seems to be everywhere now days. She has recently hit a hard road in her life and took a lot of scrutiny for being “unauthentic”. An underground rapper by the name of Azalea Banks recently bashed her on social media and interviews because she is a white rapper. Then these spun out of control and she was accused of “acting black” yet not standing up for “black issues”, such as Ferguson and other protests across the country. The hatred towards Iggy Azalea is hardly new from what About.me users have said, and Brian Torchin echoes that point.
