Del Rey publicly denounced the rapper after he wore a MAGA hat on Saturday Night Live, and Banks unleashed a flurry of tweets criticizing Del Rey a couple weeks back.
Wow okay Lana, this would be cute if you were consistent with your outrage and refused to collab with ASAP rocky who has physically assaulted women too. To me this just looks like the typical White woman taking using a weakened target to "pretend" to be an ally. https://t.co/34VEqiiy2t— CHEAPYXO (@SHOPCHEAPYXO) September 30, 2018
Especially because you know that a white woman vs a black male will result in an immediate victory for the white woman due to societal circumstances. You wouldn't dare challenge a black woman on her opinion because you don't have that (much of a) social prejudice in place between— CHEAPYXO (@SHOPCHEAPYXO) September 30, 2018
Between women as there is between sexes. Don't use Kanye for your own vapid attempts to seem politically aware when there is SO MUCH MORE bootleg witchcraft you could be doing to TRY and take down 45. Kanye is not your enemy or THE enemy. In fact your selective outrage— CHEAPYXO (@SHOPCHEAPYXO) September 30, 2018
Makes YOU. The enemy. You approve of ASAP rocky because his victims weren't white. You're exactly the kind of thought police Kanye is fighting against....— CHEAPYXO (@SHOPCHEAPYXO) September 30, 2018
Now, Banks has apparently taken the opportunity to reconnect with West, and Del Rey has spoken up to defend herself.
I'm literally so happy to have reconnected with Kanye, we're gonna do some epic shit !!! 🤪— CHEAPYXO (@SHOPCHEAPYXO) October 9, 2018
Del Rey suggested that Banks "say it to my face," and warned, "I won't not fuck you the fuck up."
@shopcheapyxo u know the addy. Pull up anytime. Say it to my face. But if I were you- I wouldn't.— Lana Del Rey (@LanaDelRey) October 9, 2018
I won't not fuck you the fuck up. Period.— Lana Del Rey (@LanaDelRey) October 9, 2018
Banks. u coulda been the greatest female rapper alive but u blew it. dont take it out on the only person who had ur back.— Lana Del Rey (@LanaDelRey) October 9, 2018
Banks then went in on the singer, savagely criticizing her looks.
Let's talk about arm workouts today!! Example : This is an example of an aging white woman who got work done on her face, and none done on her body (where she needed it most)— CHEAPYXO (@SHOPCHEAPYXO) October 9, 2018
Let's walk her through some upper arm workout! #CHEAPYXOTIPS pic.twitter.com/yVmBALwPu0
First, we need her to call the surgeon who did her pointy Michael Jackson nose and ask for some kybella for those chicken patties!!' Next we need her to head over to Instagram and invest in some @FlatTummyCo lollipops and a $20 waist trainer!— CHEAPYXO (@SHOPCHEAPYXO) October 9, 2018
Now - Step One, - put your arms down your sides and breeeeeeeeathe in deeply.— CHEAPYXO (@SHOPCHEAPYXO) October 9, 2018
Step Two: pick up the two dicks on the floor and raise them up by your ears. hold them in your clenched fists with your elbows facing the floor.— CHEAPYXO (@SHOPCHEAPYXO) October 9, 2018
Step Three: turn your head to the side, open your mouth, and agitate the dick with the tip of one in your mouth, and the tip of the other in your ear.— CHEAPYXO (@SHOPCHEAPYXO) October 9, 2018
When you are finished. Be sure to collect the semen ejected from said dicks, and massage this liquid into your aging white lady skin. This is an excellent way to fill the wrinkles left behind by expired botox.— CHEAPYXO (@SHOPCHEAPYXO) October 9, 2018
It got even uglier when Del Rey replied by offering Banks her surgeon's number and taking jabs at Banks' mental health.
I'll send you my surgeon's number and a good psychiatrist I know in LA – your psych meds aren't working #uneedanewcocktail— Lana Del Rey (@LanaDelRey) October 9, 2018
And of COURSE the white woman makes fun of mental health. Showing her truest colors! How'd that trump spell work out for ya sis??— CHEAPYXO (@SHOPCHEAPYXO) October 9, 2018
Banks even threatened legal action against Del Rey, but the singer didn't seem too concerned.
Should I be extra white woman and sue Lana for threatening me? I thiiiiiink soo ! 😇— CHEAPYXO (@SHOPCHEAPYXO) October 10, 2018
Tell him it's a promise not a threat— Lana Del Rey (@LanaDelRey) October 10, 2018
Both women have ceased the public Twitter battle for the time being, though we're not really sure if and how the respective artists' legal teams will get in between them and reach a solution.
