If you look up the word controversial in the dictionary, right next to it you’ll find a beautiful, vibrant photo of Azealia Banks, her bright smile and possibly with a blunt in her hand.
Real fans give credit where credit is due — but also call it like they see it. Hence the reason we’re taking a look back at AB moments that were shocking, jaw dropping and way more intense than what regular degular consumers are use to.
Remember when everyone gave AB the side eye for revealing that she practices witchcraft and sacrifices chickens.?

Banks had the world fed up with her trolling when she proudly supported Donald Trump during the 2016 Presidential election. She still rocks her MAGA hat today, unapologetically.
