Azealia Banks says she’s quitting social media—for good, reports NME. But first she logged onto Facebook to announce the move and explain her decision to sell many of her possessions at an auction on depop.com.
“One day I woke up and decided I wanted to change,” she wrote. “I took a look around at my surroundings and realized that similar to my emotional tendencies, I was holding on to so many things that I had no use for.
The lengthy post continued: “[There were] clothes I could no longer fit, pieces of unfinished business ideas, etc. With that said, I want to welcome you all into my mind and onto my depop page… I have SOOOO MANY RANDOM THINGS/clothes from when I was a wannabe spice girl with a-cup breasts!! So many things that a 25 year old woman should not be wearing. Come check out what may be in store for you!”
Banks then explained why she won’t be sharing her opinions online anymore. “I’m seriously tired of people’s feelings,” she wrote. I’m tired of seeing their overly sensitive reactions and responses to everything. I’m tired of having everything I say or do be monitored and I’m tired of being told how I should be behaving.
“I’m quitting Facebook, and any other form of social media that allows me to engage with people. My legacy can’t live and die on the Internet. Goodbye. For good.”
Banks was recently dropped from a UK music festival after she was accused of making racial and homophobic comments about Zayn Malik.
