Azealia Banks Shares News of Being Raped on Her Instagram Story

Azealia Banks has posted about being raped on her Instagram story and has since then deleted the posts.

Her story on Instagram started with the claim: “Lowkey just got raped. I feel like dirt.” She was with a man when she says she was drugged and put in a difficult position.

Her Instagram story continues with Banks blaming herself for what happened and expressing the desire to take a break from releasing music in order to deal with her trauma. In her story, she says “I can’t even look at music right now. I don’t want to let anyone own. I’m going to delete all my accounts because I’m embarrassed. I’m gonna delete everything, and I guess I’ll just come back when I get it together. I just feel really broken down- just when I’m rebuilding myself as an artist. I don’t know how to face y’all.” Recently Banks has released her single “Anna Wintour” and had planned to release Fantasea II: The Second Wave later half of 2018.

She continued: “This rape shit, you know. Men can just prey on you and just f***ing badger you and force you to say ‘yes’… You feel like you gave consent, but you didn’t give sh*t. You never wanted to do sh*t, but there you are, feeling f***ing powerless. Somebody really got the f***ing best of me, and I’m just so unsure how they got it.”

Banks later shared on her story that the situation is under control and reassured her fans that she would be fine.

Regarding the terrible situation Azealia Banks was placed in, fans hope that she is safe and is able to rest and recover without the stress of the release of her future music getting to her.
