The Twittersphere can be a violent place, no doubt, but the scrap between Lana Del Rey and rapper Azalea Banks has got our heads spinning.

It all started with Kanye West (doesn't everything?) and that damn MAGA hat. We could go on about this, but we'll just leave it there and let the greater minds of the internet pick it apart - Minds like Azalea Banks and Lana Del Rey.

Lana Del Rey made the first commentary, a pointed and kind of poetic criticism directed at West, "Trump becoming our president was a loss for the country but your support for him is a loss for the culture."

Banks, as she is want to do, arrived unsolicited to defend West and take a jab at Rey, who was tagged in the Twitter post. "these bitches will take any opportunity to make themselves seem more righteous in regards to black men who don't bow down to their vapid 'social power' or more civilized and respectable than the black women who have REAL reasons to be angry." "Now I dare you to challenge me on any of my opinions "witch"... you aren't built for battle. I suggest you apologize to Kanye West immediately."

At first glance (as commentators on the fight) we admit that Lana Del Rey, with her sepia colored energy and good-witch vibes, seems like she really might not be "built for battle," but we underestimate the trailer-park in her because she came back swinging.

In an evasive move, Banks brushed aside Rey's calls for a physical altrication, deciding that the more insulting thing would be to attack Rey's appearence.

And theres a solidly raunchy bit of internet gossip to get you through hump day.
