Drag queen Monét X Change has lashed out at Azealia Banks – saying she owes her success to the LGBTQ+ community – after the controversial rapper accused RuPaul of “ripping off” one of her songs.
The outspoken music artist also blasted the drag icon in a series of strongly-worded tweets.
Now, Monét X Change, who stars on season 10 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, has taken to Twitter to say she won’t be performing Banks’ music in the future.
The drag queen wrote: “I will no longer perform my Azealia Mix…EVER,” adding that Banks is “rotted TRASH.”
Banks responded to Monét X Change, tweeting: “Bitch your crotch is rotting and fermenting under that sour mildew ass girdle sus I do not give a goddamn.”
However, the rapper appears to have since deleted her Twitter account.
Monét X Change then replied: “Good one Azealia. Gotta love a tired bitch with preschool reads. Do you not realize that the LGBTQIA+ Community is the ONLY reason you have a career?
“The hetero community wasn’t checkin for yo ass before this debacle, and they won’t after. Obscurity is where you shall exist.”
Banks had previously told RuPaul on Twitter: “You will not step on my little black girl toes bitch. You will take your razor bumps and pumps to the nearest laser hair removal clinic and seethe.”
She claimed that “Call Me Mother” had been taken off Spotify, and would be “coming down very soon” from iTunes. The song is still currently available on the Apple platform.
RuPaul’s “Call Me Mother” and the 2017 album the track is taken from, called American, appear to be removed from Spotify. PinkNews has contacted Spotify for comment.
Banks also alleged that the drag icon had tried to contact her because she had started legal action over the song.
“Lol now that I’m filing claims RuPaul wants to reach out,” Banks wrote.
“But where was that energy when you were stealing my work and using me as inspiration for your campy ass television show? I’m disappointed in him first and foremost as a black person. He was supposed to have my back.”
Bank’s track “The Big Big Beat” itself features an uncredited sample of The Notorious B.I.G.’s voice.
