Love the Skin You’re In

Azealia Banks is a controversial figure in the worlds of hip hop and social media.

Even after she was banned from Twitter in May for a slew of racist comments against Zayn Malik of One Direction fame, Banks has continued to make incendiary but also thought-provoking comments about race.

Lately, however, the conversation has turned back on her, after a noticeable change in her appearance that led fans to wonder whether she has been bleaching her skin for a lighter skin tone. When she recorded a video on Facebook addressing the rumors, she defended her cosmetic choices, but fans weren’t happy with what she had to say.
