Azealia Banks recently took to her Instagram account to reveal how her fiance Ryder Ripps made fun of Swedish singer Zara Larrson’s arms while body-shaming her.  

For the unversed, Ripps works as a creative director with Larrson, well, not any longer, as she apparently fired him after taking potshots at him and Azealia in her Instagram stories. However, things soon took a wild turn as the Internet recalled how Banks had once fat-shamed Lizzo in September 2019 as apparently the rapper again fat-shamed Lizzo but deleted the post.

Where it all started?

Azealia Banks shared a bunch of stories on her official Instagram account and Zara Larrson took the screenshots of the same before they were deleted. The latter then logged into her Instagram account and stated in one of the stories, “Not Azealia Banks sharing a convo with my CREATIVE DIRECTOR Ryder making fun of my arms. Like I don't pay his bills?" In another story, she said, “What about my arm, huh? I literally see people commenting on my weight every single day, but really you @ryderripps?

Larrson then shared a long post slamming all the haters saying, “It's not even about this specific convo specifically about me. It's just tiring to always see women's bodies being this...."funny" topic. Ya my arms are genetically bigger. That's just my body type is like and honestly it's startingto get to me because people are consistently pointing it out like it's a bad thing even though I literally can't change it. But I see these comments literally everday and I never know what to say, or if I should say anything at all...just know, I am way healthier now than I have been for a long time. I actually have 3 meals a day. i am not constantly cold. I have energy and I actually love the way my a** is getting fat.”

She then shared, “Again, this is just a private convo. Like, can we all please stop commenting on other people’s bodies? Where’s the fun in that?” Larrson in her last Instagram story hinted towards firing Ripps as she posted, “So, who knows any good creative directors, lol.”

Did Azealia Banks fat-shame Lizzo?

Before things could escalate in this direction, social media users remembered how mean Banks was mean to Lizzo without any reason. Apparently, she again did the same but deleted the post according to a user on Twitter who posted, “Azealia Banks was also fat shamming Lizzo earlier today before deleting the Instagram post and some of y'all ate that up "FACTS BUT WRONG MESSENGER" head asses. Again, Azealia has not changed and continues to prove that. I hate that this happened to Zara Larsson.”

In September 2019, Azealia Banks took to Instagram to share a long message that shaded Lizzo saying that the rapper “looks like she is making a fool of her black self for a white American public". "Lmao, the fact that the public and the media has been keeping this fat girl joke going for so long is honestly peak boredom," she said and added, "The song is not good, nor is the dumpy fat girl spectacle live set she does. Saddest bit is that the girl is legit talented and truly only being allowed to shine so long as she allows herself to be this millennial mammy of sorts.”

‘Why Azealia Banks always got Lizzo name in her mouth’

Twitter users were in no mood to spare Azealia Banks as they roasted her on fat-shaming Lizzo. One said, “I really defend lizzo DOWN. because the audacity of azealia banks to say lizzo needs to stop talking about her weight after she’s spent an inordinate amount of time fat shaming her. and the audacity of people to agree with her.” Another added, “Azealia Banks is so trash. I don’t care for Lizzo but that was f**king foul.”

The next one shared, “I’m surprised every time azealia banks is trending..... she had ONE song like 10 years ago and now ppl eat it up when she calls ppl fags and says lizzo is gross bc she’s fat...... where’s the logic?” One however supported Banks and said, “I agree with Azealia Banks about Lizzo. Lizzo is always talking about her weight, it takes away from her talent. Like we get it, you’re overweight.” Echoing the same sentiments, another added, “I agree with Azealia Banks, all the talent Lizzo has and she chooses to center herself on being big. Like we get it but what about the music what about the art? It ain’t got nothing to do with you being a big joint... your fans don’t give a f**k that you are fat.” The last one again slammed Banks and asked, “Why azealia banks always got Lizzo name in her mouth?”
