The hacker collective known as Anonymous has threated Iggy Azalea telling the singer that they will release images from a sex tape of her unless she apologizes to fellow musical artist Azealia Banks. They told her ominously “You have 48 hours.”
If they got married after all this Banks (on the right) could change her name to “Azealia Azalea.”
It all started when the two ladies got into a feud earlier this month over comments Banks made during a radio interview and on Twitter. Banks contends that the Australian Azealia has “appropriated” African American culture but doesn’t care about social issues in the community.

This is getting stressful.
They jumped into this argument, getting Bank’s back and with one of their many accounts, @The nonMessage,(which has since been deactivated by Twitter) tweeting at Azalea;
“You are guilty of misappropriating black culture, insulting peaceful protesters, and making light of Eric Garner’s death. @IGGYAZALEA”
“Now about that sex tape. We won’t release the actual video. We have values to
“However, we will release various snapshots of her face to confirm. The idea is not about releasing nudes. This shows nothing.”
“We are not in the business of pleasing 13-year old boys and their fantasies.”
“All we simply ask for is an apology.”
Although a sex tape might be a little tame compated to her concerts.
A sex tape might be a chance for her to “tone it down.”
