Azealia Banks is still banned from Twitter so she used her Instagram and Facebook accounts to congratulate Donald Trump on winning the United States presidential election.  Similar to Trump, Azealia is from New York City.  Banks actually turned on Donald after the Billy Bush tapes were released.

In the Instagram and Facebook post below, Azealia Banks apologizes for turning on Trump.  If you're familiar with Azealia, then you know she didn't stop there.  The Facebook post below shows her mocking Jay-Z, BeyoncĂ© and Hillary Clinton.  Similar to Trump, Banks knows the benefits of the shock factor.

Shock advertising is when a celebrity, or politician, deliberately offends the public to create buzz.  The tactic was definitely effective for Donald Trump.  His willingness to say anything throughout his campaign, kept him on the public's radar.

While numerous celebrities responded to the election results, Azealia's response earned headlines because it was the most shocking.  While she's ruining her legacy, she's enjoying the short-term benefits of being ignorant.  Considering Donald Trump's success, Banks might be smarter than we think.

In the Facebook post below, Banks calls out Jay-Z and Beyoncé for support Hillary Clinton:

I wouldn't be surprised if Trump responded to the singer.  What do you think about her comments?
