Rapper Azealia Banks went after Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang in her Instagram Stories and accused him of being a Chinese spy.
In the now-deleted post, the 28-year-old artist from Harlem, New York said she is “strongly against Andrew Yang.”

“Call me xenophobic if you wish, but he is to China what random Russian-American civilian spies are to Putin,” she said, adding she’s not ready for the “United States of China.”
“This country has yet to issue a final apology for slavery to African Americans. I’ll be damned if China takes control of this country before my black ass gets the piece of this American pie I’m owed.”
Banks is a supporter of Kamala Harris but also endorsed Donald Trump during his campaign.

This is not the first time Banks’ social media posts have sparked controversy online.
In 2016, many South Asian internet users clapped back at Banks’ racist comment to former One Direction member Zayn Malik.
