Azealia Banks, who is currently touring in Australia, has vowed she will never return to the country to perform.

The singer-rapper canceled her show in Brisbane on Tuesday December 13 hours before she was due to appear on stage, saying in an Instagram video that a past performance in the city was “the most racist, demoralizing experience of my shit.” was life”.

Banks was due to perform in both Brisbane and Melbourne earlier this week but both concerts have been postponed due to “visa issues”. She performed in Sydney on Sunday night (December 11) and her show in Melbourne has been rescheduled to this Saturday (December 17).

“I’m so sorry guys – actually I’m not sorry – but listen: last time I was in Brisbane you all threw shit on the stage and almost fucking punched me in the face with.” a friggin’ bottle of soda or whatever that was,” Banks said in the clip, which was shared to her social media.

“It was the most racist, demoralizing experience of my frigging life and right now I’m on a really good path.”

She added: “Sydney and Melbourne are the only cities I really want to play in. You all have a completely different culture here. I’m too far from home… I’m a beautiful black woman and I’m not going to step in front of an audience of white people to have s*** thrown at me.

“I’m not sorry. I’m not sorry at all. Brisbane, all you have to do is take the L and smoke it.”

She later said: “After that run, this will be my very last tour of Australia.

“This place makes me absolutely miserable and I’m too black and beautiful to have a bunch of white people in my face playing with me about their WEAK ASS CURRENCY.”

In a video from the event, fans could be seen booing the “212” singer after she threw her microphone on the floor. As she walked away, a bystander appeared to throw a drink at her, prompting her to stick both middle fingers out at the crowd.

In 2016, Banks was suspended from Twitter after a series of racially charged tweets attacked singer and former One Direction star Zayn Malik. She later apologized.

In 2020, she was suspended again for a series of transphobic tweets.
