Azealia Banks set off alarm on social media when the rapper insinuated in several tweets that she is ready to end her tenure on Earth and check out.

The controversial “Ice Princess” femcee, 29, who may be known more for her myriad of rap beefs than her music career, frightened her fans when she wrote on Twitter: “Yea, I think I’m done here. This pandemic, extreme lack of social interaction, no intimacy, combined with constant public ridicule is making life harder than its [sic] worth.”

The disturbing messages follow her recent posts accusing Kanye West of being a “closeted homosexual,” saying she had sex with comedian Dave Chappelle, and shaving her head during an Instagram Live session.

Banks’ supporters decried the fact that Banks has been subjected to more vicious ridicule than counterparts like Kanye who has also gone off on bizarre and hate-filled tirades many times in the past on social media.
