Hacker group, Anonymous, has threatened Iggy Azalea with photo stills of a rumoured sex tape. Azalea claims ignorance over this footage, denying having filmed anything of this sort. These threats came in the wake of recent criticisms of Azalea ‘misappropriating black culture’ and ‘making light of Eric Garner’s death.’
Furthermore, Azalea has also an ongoing feud with Azealia Banks, an emerging rapper from Harlem, New York, who feels that “privileged white people shouldn’t steal hip hop.” In retaliation, Azalea accused Banks of “being a bigot” and not having “the mental capacity to realize yet” on Twitter. This feud further sparked tension over the recent deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.
The hacker group Anonymous has demanded that Azalea apologises to Banks, immediately, otherwise the group will resort to leaking photo stills from Azalea’s sex tape. No video will be uploaded, however, the promise of photos remains enforced.
The two artists released the debut studio albums in 2014.
