A hacker group called Anonymous, not affiliated with the Sony hackers, is threatening to release images from the "Fancy" rapper's alleged sex tape with her ex-boyfriend (of which Azalea vehemently denied even existed and then backtracked a bit) if she does not apologize to Banks and the protesters of the #BlackLivesMatter movement for remarks they claim she made that were racist.
The hackers posted several threatening messages on a Twitter account that has since been suspended. "MESSAGE: @IGGYAZALEA, you have exactly 48 hours from now to release a statement apologizing to @AzealiaBanks and the protesters in NYC..." one tweet read (via Vulture). "You are guilty of misappropriating black culture, insulting peaceful protesters, and making light of Eric Garner's death. @IGGYAZALEA."
Another message read: "There's an X-rated tape of you, we bet you'd certainly don't want public, are we right? @IGGYAZALEA....and this is nothing. Comply or else."
Banks and Azalea have been in a back-and-forth feud for some time now, but the bickering really broke out after Banks, 23, bashed the "Black Widow" rapper during an interview with Hot 97.
"I feel like in this country, whenever it comes to our things, like black issues or black politics or black music or whatever, there's always this undercurrent of kinda like a 'f**k you,'" she said. "That Iggy Azalea s**t isn't better than any f**king black girl that's rapping today. ...The GRAMMYS are supposed to be accolades of artistic excellence. Iggy Azalea is not excellent."
Following the Grammy slam, Azalea bit back on Twitter, writing: "There are many black artists succeeding in all genres. The reason you haven't is because of your piss poor attitude... Your inability to be responsible for your own mistakes, bullying others, the inability to be humble or have self control. It's YOU!"
Azalea, 24, doesn't seem to be affected by the hackers' threats. Instead, she's focused on her upcoming tour with Nick Jonas. "Seeing everyone tweet me what dates they are going to on the tour makes me way too excited for next year," she wrote on Saturday, Dec. 20. "@Tinashe @nickjonas slay me."
