Oh, Azealia Banks. You're never in the news for anything non-controversial, are you? On July 1, Banks posted a video to Facebook Live in which she talked about, among other things, skin bleaching. "What's the difference between getting a nose job and changing your skin color?" she asked, and also compared chemically lightening your skin to getting a weave.
Many Twitter users, including some fans, quickly took Banks to task for the admission:
I abhor how Azealia Banks tries to trivialise skin bleaching. It's not part of "disco fever" or "not a big deal." It's a massive deal.— kelz (@kelechnekoff) July 2, 2016

Never would've guessed that Azealia Banks hated Azealia Banks more than we do— pj (@pjhoody) July 2, 2016
