Sarah Palin vowed to sue Azealia Banks over comments the rapper made on Twitter Monday calling for the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential nominee to be gang-raped by black men.
In a statement provided to People magazine, Palin wrote that she would bring a lawsuit against the 24-year-old Slay-Z rapper “on behalf of all reasonable women of every age, race and political leaning.”
“I’ve had enough of the unanswered threats and attacks against my family and me,” Palin wrote. “So, for the first time I’m going to enjoy the only retribution some ‘protected’ celebrities seem to understand — I’m suing Azealia Banks and can’t wait to share my winnings with others who have gone defenseless against lies and dangerous attacks far too long.”
On Monday, Banks posted a series of graphic messages on Twitter in which she suggested Palin should be shaved bald, forced to perform oral sex on black men, and then be gang-raped by them, and that the incident should be filmed and uploaded to World Star Hip Hop.
