Azealia Banks Slams Iggy Azalea in Racially Charged Rant After Eric Garner Killing Verdict--Find Out What They Said

Azealia Banks' racially-charged beef with Iggy Azalea was fueled yet again on Wednesday, as hundreds took to the streets of New York City to protest a grand jury decision not to indict a white police officer who killed an unarmed black man and father of six, Eric Garner.

Banks, who is black, took to Twitter to unleash an expletive, racially charged rant about the white, Australian-born Azalea, best known for the No. 1 hit "Fancy," and protégé of T.I.. Banks, who has often insulted Azalea, on Wednesday called her "Igloo Australia," and later started posting anti-gay tweets.

That night, hundreds of people filled the streets of New York City to take part in several demonstrations to protest the grand jury decision that day. The officer who caused Garner's death had placed him in a chokehold and the NYPD had said he had resisted arrest after they tried to detain him for selling cigarettes illegally.

The ruling came a week after a similar decision was made in St. Louis over a white police officer's killing of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, in the town of Ferguson. The case and ruling sparked racially-charged protests, local and national, heightened tensions across the country and raised questions about racial discrimination and possible police brutality.

"It's funny to see people Like Igloo Australia silent when these things happen..." Banks tweeted on Wednesday, hours after the Garner killing verdict was announced.

If you're down to ride with us bitch, you gotta RIDE ALL THE WAY," she added.

Banks then got nastier.

"LOL... I'M PETTY, but it's so true, ugh, that wannabe black girl s--t makes me wanna throw a jar of my p--- at her LMFAOOOO," she said, adding, "Like, fill a jar with p--- and mayo and eggs and just dump that s--t on that bitch's head LMFAOOOOOOO."

She also referenced the Ku Klux Klan in another insult against Azalea and used a racial slur against T.I. in an additional tweet. He has not commented.

Azalea responded hours later, saying, "I see all hell broke loose while I was at rehearsals today."

"We've all read the script 49584068408540 billion times now, find a new game plan," she added.

She then promoted her upcoming tour, saying Nick Jonas will join her.

...and Banks then got into an argument with a writer who tweeted, "I blame T.I. for giving Iggy a pass into the culture that she actually cares nothing about."

"F u and the horse you rode in on this has nothing to do with the REAL issue and everything to do with someone's tired old S--T," the rapper added.

Meanwhile, Banks started tweeting directly at Azalea.

"Why do you want to act like us? I need to know," she said, adding. "Why do you imitate us in such a way that I feel like you are actually making fun of us? Why?"

She also called her a derogatory name often directed at white rappers or fans of rap music and black culture and later, used an anti-gay slur repeatedly while arguing with gay blogger Perez Hilton.

As for Azalea, she finally did get political. She addressed the racially charged cases and protests while arguing with a University of South Florida student.

"@IGGYAZALEA Then, do tell, what's the Real Issue here? Solve that f--king Scooby Doo mystery for us, plz," he said.

"The issue here is America's racist justice system & police force," she tweeted, adding. "I don't have anything to do with that my tweet is in regards to somebody trying to use my name & the actual problem to promote themselves via 'twitter beef.'"

She later added, "There's more to sparking a change than trolling on social media. World issues shouldn't be used as a poor excuse to promote fan battles."

"Make sure you do something to let YOUR government know how you feel when something is unjust., not JUST your followers on twitter..." she said. "Make sure you sign petitions, hit the streets and protest or donate to groups helping to support and rebuild the community too."

"Also try not to judge another's support or 'lack thereof' solely on if they have ra
