The rapper said the experience made her cry.
Nick Cannon has responded after Azealia Banks claimed that her experience on 'Wild'n Out' resulted in her being mocked, ridiculed and at the receiving end of "colorist" jokes.
The '212' rapper claims she was mocked for her complexion during her "short notice" appearance, which was for a performance only, adding that she cried as a result of the alleged harassment.
Hosted and created by Cannon, 'Wild'n Out' is a US comedy show, during which guests roast each other through rap battles.
"I did Wildin’ out today. There were tons of pre-planned colorist jokes and of course .... cry baby cried," Banks wrote. "I’ve never felt so much hate and rage for anyone else than I did in that moment." Read Banks' statement below.
I did Wildin’ out today. There were tons of pre-planned colorist jokes and of course .... cry baby cried. Some little scrawny black Atlanta twink was prepared for me. They planned this - hit me on short notice, told me I didn’t have to participate in the coon ass freestyle battles ,(not my style) and I was to sing my song and go home. I show up and some guy who’s darker than me starts calling me ugly and being colorist, then all of a sudden a choir of the most disgustingly basic, local, cattle call “urban” pseudo comedic “FAT BECause You sit in a chair all day” greasy soul food induced south of the mason Dixon ,self hatred. Ass It#backwards, post-Jim crow , post traumatic slave disorder true self esteem less, Ward of the state CLOWNS with their low scale and highly UNimpressive resumes, start going off about how the beautiful Azealia Banks looks! I’ve never felt so much hate and rage for anyone else than I did in that moment. Yemaya was really on stage . Yemaya .....
In addition to her initial comments, Banks went on to question whether or not she would be seen as a "bad guy" if she made fun of Cannon's health.
"If I were to make fun of Nick Cannon for having lupus and being weak and sickly....If I made a joke that said he'd be dead by the end of the year....Then Azealia Banks is the bad guy.... right?" she wrote on Instagram.
Cannon took to Instagram to respond, writing, "Don’t you hate when you create your own storms but forget your umbrella???"
"We are praying for you Queen," he added. Banks is yet to respond to Cannon's latest comment.
