Can we take a minute to revisit the Skai Jackson-Azealia Banks situation?! Yes one of the best Twitter shut downs!
Anyways if you missed the tea, in a nutshell Azealia Banks was throwing major shade at Zayn Malik when 14-year-old Skai Jackson tweeted that Azealia needed to “simmer down a little.” From there, Azealia tried really hard to break Skai but in the most classy way possible, Skai put Azealia in her place.
Well Skai has been applauded for standing up against Ms. Banks’ very routined Twitter behavior. She recently sat down with the Huffington Post to spill tea on her confrontation. Here’s what she had to say:
“…when I was younger in public school, I would always get bullied for little things like being the shortest in my class, being smallest, just really stupid things. And my mom would always tell me, “if someone bullies you, don’t just sit there and let them bully you. Do something about it or tell someone about it.” So I have always taken that on, what my mother said. And I kinda used that with the whole Azealia thing that just happened. I mean, she is a bully, she is an internet troll. So for me, reading all these racial slurs that she was saying to different celebrities in the past couple months — and I’m like the 30th person now — I felt that I just had to voice my opinion because I have dealt with bullies over the internet and in person. I just feel like what she’s doing is not OK.”
So there to have it, straight from the mouth of a 14-year-old reader aka Skai Jackson: say no to bullies!
