Celebrities are no strangers to stalkers, threats and hackers. And the most recent victim is rapper Iggy Azalea, as she is threatened over the Internet by the hacking group, Anonymous.

On Friday night, Dec. 19, 2014, Anonymous posted messages to Azalea under the now-deleted Twitter name @TheAnonMessage, after her recent Twitter battle with fellow rapper Azealia Banks on the most recent killings of black people like Eric Garner.

According to their tweets, unless Azalea does a public apology to Banks, and the protesters of the #blacklivesmatter movement within 48 hours, they will release still images from Azalea’s alleged sex tape with a man in a "business suit," reportedly so scandalous that it could rival Bill Cosby’s.

The hacking group went further the next day, saying that Azalea is a "trashy bitch" and that she’s ‘guilty of misappropriating black culture, insulting peaceful protesters and making light of Eric Garner's death. One of their last tweets before deleting their account threw a stinging blow to the rapper by saying that the sex tape was supposedly made to help her make a record deal.

As of the moment, Azalea has not yet made a public apology nor has Anonymous made any threatening moves against her yet.

According to HollywoodLife.com, Azalea’s racial Twitter battle with Banks started early this month when Banks bashed Azalea for wanting to be in good vibes with the black community yet not taking part in the action related to the issue. However, Azalea kept her cool and posted encouragements for the black community.

Then again, things have taken a serious turn as Banks blasted her during a radio interview with Hot 97, saying, “The Grammys are supposed to be awards for artistic excellence. Iggy Azalea’s not excellent.” Unable to help herself, Azalea posted several messages for Banks on Twitter. 

Will Iggy Azalea make the public apology? Post your comments below.
