Azealia Banks has taken to her Instagram to share disturbing details about a recent sexual assault.
According to the 212 rapper, she “lowkey” was raped by a man she hung out with on Friday, and she blamed herself for the unfortunate experience. “I feel like dirt,” she wrote, adding that that the unnamed man drugged her drink, and it was only after she woke up that she found out what really happened.
“One thing led to another…I just feel really dumb because it was partially my fault, you know? […] I just feel like a dumbass, such a dummy. I just want to fuckin’ disappear right now. I feel really bad,” she said in the now-deleted posts.
“I can’t even look at music right now. I don’t want to let anyone down,” she said. “[…] I’m gonna delete all my accounts, because I’m embarrassed. I’m gonna delete everything, and I guess I’ll just come back when I get it together. I just feel really broken down—just when I’m rebuilding myself as an artist. I don’t know how to face y’all.”
She continued: “This rape shit, you know. Men can just prey on you and just fucking badger you and force you to say ‘yes’ […] You feel like you gave consent, but you didn’t give shit. You never wanted to do shit, but there you are, feeling fucking powerless. Somebody really got the fucking best of me, and I’m just so unsure how they got it.”
Later she returned to assure her fans that situation was “under control.”
