In the past two weeks, Lana Del Rey and Iggy Azalea were the subjects of particularly insensitive Eminem rhymes. But, the misogyny did not fall on deaf ears.
Azealia Banks, who has collaborated with Del Rey in the past, swiftly tweeted in her defense suggesting the "Blue Jeans" singer tell Eminem to "go back to his trailer park and eat his microwave hotpocket dinner." Iggy's response to the lyrics was even sharper, dismissing Slim Shady as nothing more than an old man.
In the age of social media, we have a 24/7 platform to air our grievances or stir up trouble. And, female celebrities are often seen as easy targets. Thankfully, for every jerk with a Twitter account spouting some misogynistic nonsense, there's an awesome woman ready to cry foul.
