Rapper also posts 'Make Azealia Great Again' meme
Azealia Banks has celebrated Donald Trump’s US election victory, despite previously disowning the Republican candidate.
Having originally stated that she would vote for Trump because he’s “evil, like America”, Banks later withdrew her endorsement after comments made by Trump about allegedly groping women emerged.
However, after Trump beat Hillary Clinton overnight to make it to the White House, the rapper posted a series of messages to Facebook, saying “We won” and describing herself as “elated” by the result.
On Instagram, she described herself as “fucking proud as FUCK” and said: “I must say that I am TRULY inspired by this and feel deep amounts of vindication.”
“America deserves a WAAAAAAAY better first female president then trash ass Hillary,” Banks added on Facebook. “Now that the cow has lost for the SECOND time, let’s set her back out to pasture.”
She added: “TRUMP BEAT THE MEDIA. THIS IS DEEPER THAN POLITICS. HE BEAT THE FUCKING MEDIA. HE IS MY FUCKING HERO RIGHT NOW.”
Banks signed off by posting a photo that read: “Make Azealia Great Again”, a reference to Trump’s campaign slogan. See below.

Meanwhile, Banks will no longer be signing to RZA‘s label following the fall-out over her alleged altercation with the actor Russell Crowe at a hotel party.
Banks reportedly filed a battery report against the actor after accusing him of assaulting her and uttering racial slurs. Banks went to the police after Crowe refused to apologise for what had allegedly happened, and has since told The Sun that she considers the 52-year-old to be a “a racist, misogynist pig” after the incident. Crowe’s representatives have denied any wrongdoing on the actor’s part since the incident came to light.
