Azealia Banks calls Dolce and Gabbana racist and plans to boycott them

 
Dolce and Gabbana have been at the center of controversy over their fashion lineup for 2012-2013 collection – many customers are angry that the collection depicts a lot of negative imagery from slave-era America. Now, it's not just the general public, but celebrities that are getting angry and speaking up.
 
In a series of twitter posts, Azealia Banks elaborates on what she feels about this new lineup.  In the first tweet, she said, “Definitely boycotting Dolce & Gabanna.”  She continues with “Whoever designed that racist ass Dolce and Gabanna collection needs a swift kick in the mouth and a big dick up the ass” and “I really hate it when people do corny, racist things then try to justify it as ‘art.”  In the end, she adds, “It’s all just really unnecessary. The clothes in the collection were fine without all the “black mammie” imagery.”
 
The outrage from the lineup also came from the fact that it was almost all noticeably white models who were wearing these clothes.  The collection was reportedly inspired by Sicily, and the first African settlers in Sicily.  
 
After those series of tweets, Banks stopped commenting on the matter and didn’t reply to anyone who asked her about it.  Banks is just 21 years old, and came to fame primarily through her debut single ‘212’, featuring Lazy Jay.
