The Hacking Collective Anonymous Takes Sides In Iggy Azalea And Azealia Banks Beef, Demands Apology
As a white Australian woman in hip-hop, Iggy Azalea has faced plenty of criticism this year for working within a tradition that emerged from African-American culture. And while her mentor and label boss T.I. has had her back at every juncture, her latest response to some harsh words from Azealia Banks angered those who felt her words belittled the bigger issues this year regarding police brutality toward unnarmed black men and the non-indictment decisions in the Eric Garner and Michael Brown cases.
But now a new entity has entered the feud—the hacking collective Anonymous who are well-known for mobilizing their extensive digital network to reveal personal information about people and dox them in order to prove a point. So what's their bone of contention with Iggy? They want her to apologize to Azealia Banks—within two days.
The group goes on to imply that they have the long-rumored sex tape involving Iggy, but even if they verify its existence they claim they won't release the actual tape itself.

Update: Anonymous has since tweeted that they won't be releasing "anything." The body of the story and the headline have been updated to reflect this.
