Rapper Azealia Banks has apologised to her fans for letting them down with her conduct. The 24-year-old rapper, who had her Twitter account suspended and was dropped from appearing at a London festival last month in the wake of a racist rant towards Zayn Malik, has said she now understands that not everyone is as ‘thick skinned’ as she is, reported Female First.
“The amount of people that get hurt when I use the word vs the amount of people I’ve said it to are just not worth it. Honestly... This isn’t a cop out, it’s just me realising that words hurt.
“And while I may be immune to every word and be thicker skinned than most, it doesn’t mean that I get to go around treating people with the same toughness that made my skin so thick. Because, that is how people get thick skin... by being subjected to name calling/belittlement/abuse and it’s not fair,” she wrote in an online post.
The musician ended her post with a sincere apology to her fans for letting them down ‘over the years’ with her outspoken ways. “To end this note I want to SINCERELY apologise to my fans for having let so many of you down over the years.
“I know that you all want nothing else for me but to see me win, and i thank the many of you who saw the beauty in me and have stuck around this far.... “You guys are my rock, I love you guys so much and all I want to do is make you proud. (sic),” Banks wrote.
