Iggy Azalea’s throwback pictures surfaced online, and fans are in shocked.
Iggy is making headlines again. We previously reported that the rapper was called out by social media for her latest video, “I Am The Stripclub.”
In the video, fans noticed that the Australian-born rapper’s appearance looked different. Social media began to call her out for “blackfishing” when they noticed that her skin tone was a few shades darker than she is. The term blackfishing was coined by hip-hop journalist, Wanna Thompson and she defines it as “the phenomenon of non-Black influencers and public figures using bronzer, tanning, Photoshop, or even cosmetic surgery to change their looks to appear Black or mixed race.”
Racist culture vultures like Iggy Azalea rape our music and use it as a way to promote images harmful to us.
Her new song is, "I am the Strip club," but she shows herself fully clothed and has black men dressed up like whores.
That's the message: I'm pimping you black people. pic.twitter.com/1e0jrZN4Cy
