UPDATE 4:51 p.m.: Azealia Banks has now responded to Sarah Palin's lengthy Facebook letter with a letter of her own, delivered via her Tumblr page. "I want to start this letter off by telling you that I actually, really like you," Banks writes. "While many other American people may see you as someone to be ridiculed, I truly believe that you possess a certain je ne sais quoi (a French term which is often interpreted to denote one’s inexplicable charisma)." Banks then outlines her definition of the exact differences between rape and group sex, taking aim at "American hypocrisy" before ultimately asking Palin to accept her "sincerest" apology.
Peep the apology letter in full here.

For reasons not entirely clear, Sarah Palin has responded to fellow Donald Trump supporter Azealia Banks' recent Twitter screed against her. In typical Palin fashion, the exact meaning of that response appears to have stealthily disappeared into a blur of on-brand incoherency. Banks' original series of tweets, as reported by Mic, were posted on Sunday and appeared to be in response to a satirical article from Newslo in which Palin was (satirically) quoted as saying:
"I'm telling you, I've been saying it for years, but nobody's listening—slavery wasn't forced onto African-Americans, they accepted it willingly."
Banks responded with publicly theorizing that Palin should "have her hair shaved off" before getting "headfucked" by a "black dick," expressing concern over Palin's comments on slavery in the aforementioned satirical article. Though the tweets in question have since been deleted, Mic managed to grab some screenshots:
On Tuesday, Sarah Palin took to Facebook to deliver her response to Banks' deleted tweets and, well, perhaps we should just let that response speak for itself:
There are, of course, a lot of things to unpack in that response. The response's greatest flaw, however, may be the fact that it even exists at all. Azealia Banks, as anyone who's ever spent even a brief amount of time on Twitter can attest, is known for her headlines-crashing Twitter feuds and apparent trolling attempts. Much like her newly minted BFF Donald Trump, Palin actually takes the time to respond to (admittedly disgusting) stuff like this because that's very likely the only way to keep the relevancy fire even vaguely stoked. Troubling tweets? Indeed. Will this eventually lead to a press conference wherein Palin and Banks squash the beef to introduce Donald Trump in front of a roaring crowd of supporters? That sadly seems quite possible indeed.
