Mean Azealia Banks tweet inspires the best birthday cake ever

July 18, 2017

Online shade has never tasted better.

Professional shade thrower and self-reliant rapper Azealia Banks isn’t exactly known to have the most low-key personality, with a comprehensive resume of shit disturbing and witchcraft-related chicken violence that speaks for itself. Yeah, there’s some house-inflected jams on that CV too, but at this point, is her music the first thing that springs to mind when you hear the name Azealia Banks? All that being said, it doesn’t really come as any surprise that she’d tweet at a young fan that he’d be “dead before 21” for some perceived slight or another back before her main Twitter account was suspended last year for the use slurs against Zayn Malik and Skai Jackson, but at least Twitter user @hisnameismario got the ultimate birthday cake as evidence Banks was wrong:

Quick, somebody plug that cake in! At least Banks is apparently ready to let bygones be bygones, at least if her Cheaoy XO brand account is anything to go by:

That’s – a pretty reasonable response! Maybe this marks a turning point in Azealia Banks’ online attitude? We can only hope, as that would probably going a long way towards getting back in the 2014-sized spotlight.
