Azealia Banks Blasts Dolce & Gabbana Collection, Calls It "Racist"

Azealia Banks has some strong words for the Italian design house over some questionable clothing items.

From T.I. to Jim Jones, Harlem upstart Azealia Banks hasn't been known to play well with others. Now, according to Vibe, the outspoken emcee and singer has set her sight on a new target: Dolce & Gabbana.

Banks took to Twitter this past weekend to assail the Italian fashion label over their latest Spring 2013 collection, which she thought was racist. She said that the images of black women used in a number of D&G's items were reminiscent of Jim Crow imagery and plans to boycott the designer.

According to sources, the collection that raised Banks' ire was inspired by the Italian designers' Sicilian roots. Images of the controversial clothing items can be found over at Vibe.
