Sarah Palin responded Tuesday to a series of now-deleted vulgar tweets from rapper Azealia Banks that called for a group of black men to “run a train” on the former Alaska governor.

Ms. Banks, 24, falsely accused Mrs. Palin of saying black people accepted slavery “willingly,” which was reported by a satirical news site, according to the Media Research Center.

Sarah Palin needs to have her hair shaved off to a buzz cut” and be forced to perform oral sex on a black man before being “locked in a cupboard,” Ms. Banks tweeted, adding that it would be the “least she can do,” according to screenshots obtained by the MRC.

“Let’s find the biggest burliest blackest negroes and let them run a train on her. Film it and put it on worldstar,” Ms. Banks tweeted.

On Tuesday afternoon, Ms. Palin condemned Ms. Banks for the “bizarre, violent” rant.

“Hey Female Rapper — listen up, little darling,” the former Republican vice presidential candidate wrote on Facebook. “No one has any idea what you’re wigging out about in these bizarre, violent rants against me, but you’re obviously not exercising enough intelligence to acknowledge you’ve been sucked into believing some fake interview in which I supposedly offered comments representing the antithesis of my truth.

“In this life, you’re blessed to have been given an influential platform. So have I. Why don’t we strengthen both our platforms and work together on something worthwhile — like condemning racism, along with empowering young women to defend themselves against a most misogynist, degrading, devastating assault perpetrated by evil men — rape,” Mrs. Palin continued.

“Thanks. And now I’ll go through my young daughter’s playlist to make sure there hasn’t been any inadvertent addition of any anti-woman, pro-rape garbage that you seem to endorse, which perpetuates the cultural challenges we face in America. I encourage other parents to do the same,” she concluded. “God bless you Ms. Banks, as you consider a change of heart.”

Mrs. Palin’s post was shared more than 6,500 times in two hours.

Even though Ms. Banks deleted her original tweets, she repeated the vulgar comments in messages to The Blaze’s Oliver Darcy.
