Azealia Banks criticised for ‘disgusting’ post about Wild 'N Out star Jacky Oh’s death

Azealia Banks criticised for ‘disgusting’ post about Wild 'N Out star Jacky Oh’s death

Controversial rapper Azealia Banks has been slammed by fans for comments she had made about Jacky Oh’s death.

Azealia Banks has been criticised over a post about the death of DC Young Fly’s girlfriend, with some describing it as 'disgusting'.

The controversial rapper does not seem to leave the headlines these days, having most recently thrown shade at the 1975's Matty Healy.

Now, the 32-year-old has took aim at DC Young Fly, just a matter of days after his girlfriend - MTV star Jacky Oh - died at the age of 32.

A BET Media Group spokesperson took to Instagram on 1 June to release an official statement, saying: "We are deeply saddened by the passing of Jacklyn Smith, known to the world as Jacky Oh, a talented Wild N’ Out family member whose impact will be forever treasured and missed.

"Jacky Oh was a loving friend and beloved colleague of the Wild N’ Out cast throughout five seasons. More importantly, she was a tremendous mother to three beautiful children."

It continued: "The BET Media Group extends our sincere condolences to the Smith family, DC Young Fly, B Simone, Nick Cannon, and all friends who loved and cared for Jacky Oh during this difficult time."

Now, in a bombshell Instagram post, Banks claimed DC Young Fly's behaviour and 'jokes pointed at women's beauty' made Jacky 'deeply insecure' prior to her death.

She wrote: "Damn, Dc Young Fly spent years disguising his own deeply rooted hatred of self as jokes pointed at women’s beauty Projecting his own feelings about his own ugliness unto women perfectly secure in their own skin.

"Say what you want about my tears. They were pure tears of rage And not at all a sign of weakness. Because in the end I won. I’m happy I cried and moved on.

"That Jackie o girl must have been so deeply insecure about herself. And the nerve of DC to call such a gorgeous woman as Azealia Banks…ugly on National television while a bunch of black people laughed."

The Instagram story has since been reposted to the @popculturehate Reddit forum, where many fans have slammed the rapper.

One person wrote: "This is so profoundly cruel. Throwing another woman under the bus and mocking her death plus saying she must have been insecure to stay with this guy?

"I don't know Young Fly or Jackie Oh but I can't imagine thinking this is any kind of flex and not an absolutely disgusting thing to say."

A second added: "Ahhh, back to our regularly scheduled Azaelia Banks I see."

Meanwhile, a third remarked: "This situation literally has nothing to do with her and she made it about herself."

UNILAD has reached out to Azealia Banks' representatives for comment.
