Azealia Banks says she was sexually assaulted over the weekend. In a series of since-deleted Instagram videos, the Anna Wintour singer broke down about the alleged rape before eventually saying everything was “under control.”
Banks began her post writing “Lowkey just got raped. I feel like dirt.” She followed it up with several audio messages detaining the incident.
“This rape s**t, you know. Men can just prey on you and just f**king badger you and force you to say ‘yes’ … You feel like you gave consent, but you didn’t give s**t. You never wanted to do s**t, but there you are, feeling f**king powerless. Somebody really got the f**king best of me, and I’m just so unsure how they got it.”
The messages were downloaded and shared on YouTube. You can listen to them below, but please note—some people may find them upsetting.
