Azealia Banks is at it again.
In the interview, Banks expresses her unfounded belief that the Black Window singer is popular because she's caucasian, not because she's talented.
Obviously, the relationship between race and music is a MAJOR point of contention for the 23-year-old and at one point during the discussion she breaks down in tears.
The explosive rapper ranted:
Why were the Sony hackers able to get their way and completely shut down The Interview? Too few were willing to stand up to them.
And unfortunately those that did try to fight back somehow were left high and dry.
It turns out one of the people trying to rally the troops to stand up against the terrorist threats was George Clooney.

As we reported earlier, the Austin-based Alamo Drafthouse theater chain (later more theaters followed suit) planned to replace the Christmas release of the cancelled Seth Rogen/James Franco comedy with a special anniversary run of Team America: World Police.
We were so saddened to hear that The Interview was going to be shelved indefinitely by Sony.
