Last month, Azealia Banks went on an Instagram tirade against Nick Cannon and his MTV series Wild 'N Out, accusing the cast of shaming her for her complexion when she was a guest on the show. Now footage from the episode has aired and reveals how a Cardi B joke upset the Harlem rapper.
During the show's "So Fly" segment, which was renamed "So Petty" in honor of Banks, comedian DC Young Fly joked that Cannon couldn't book Cardi B for the episode so he settled for Banks' "ugly ass." While the crowd and cast laughed, Azealia appeared upset by the joke.
"Sorry, can I just say that was very anti-Black," Banks told the crowd. "I didn't think that was funny."
Although the Cardi B joke is the only one that has surfaced so far from Banks' appearance on Wild 'N Out, the "Anna Wintour" artist claimed their were more "pre-planned colorist jokes" during her visit.
"I did Wildin’ out today. There were tons of pre-planned colorist jokes and of course .... cry baby cried," she wrote in an Instagram post in July. "Some little scrawny black Atlanta twink was prepared for me. They planned this - hit me on short notice, told me I didn’t have to participate in the coon ass freestyle battles ,(not my style) and I was to sing my song and go home."
After calling out Cannon on Instagram as well, the show's host eventually responded, writing, "Don't you hate when you create your own storms but forget your umbrella??? @azealiabanks We are praying for you Queen."
