As reported by the Inquisitr, Azalea was on vacation in Hawaii and wore a red bikini when the cellulite photos were snapped.
In the wake of the cellulite on her butt being exposed, Iggy Azalea quit Twitter, saying, “The internet is the ugliest reflection of mankind,” according to the Independent.
Yes, body shaming is horrible, and no one loves Twitter trolls. However, with Iggy Azalea telling the world to focus on her “Booty” — as is the title of one of her songs — the 24-year-old shouldn’t necessarily be surprised when people do what Iggy suggests. This time, it turned out not to be the glamorized, photoshopped, glitzy, and glamorous way that stars who control their images are seen.
Notably, the Iggy Azalea Twitter page (@IGGYAZALEA) tweeted her pleas for peace on vacation, and derided the photographer for hiding out and taking those famous cellulite bikini snaps of Azalea.
“I just want to have peace and relaxation time without a perve with long distance lens hiding out taking pictures, everyone deserves peace.”
While Wendy Williams defended Azalea, urging folks to just leave her alone, the Iggy Azalea backlash is what one would expect from a beautiful singer who teases and taunts folks with her beautiful backside, crooning, “bet you wish you could clutch that,” and freestyle rapping that Azalea is the “new b$tc7” wearing “new sh7t” and calling her man’s ex-girlfriend “too thick” and other such terms. With Azalea taking on the rap bravado and machismo of a male artist — such as those who call themselves the greatest ever — it’s not surprising that folks would look for things to take Iggy down a notch, including cellulite-ridden bikini photos. Nevertheless, none of it should take away from the God-given rhyming skills of Azalea.
