Azealia Banks is already starting off 2021 with a very controversial video. Banks took to instagram yesterday in a horrifying video by digging up her dead cat, cooking it, and posting videos on Instagram. The video has since been removed but other news outlets were quick to grab the video before it was removed.
In the since deleted video, Banks had captioned, "Lucifer 2009-2020. My Dear kitty," she wrote as her caption on one of the two since-deleted (or possibly reported) videos. "Thank you for everything. A legend. An icon. Forever a serval serve."
"Is Azealia Banks really digging up her dead cat and cooking it on instagram right now?" asked one fan, "seriously concerned for what was happening on the artist's page". "Azealia Banks dug up her dead cat cooked it... i have no words 2021 is not the year," said another.
Fans also took to Twitter to express their horror.
