Publish date:

Iggy Azalea is denying blackfishing accusations made by fans after she dropped the "I Am The Stripclub" video.

In the video, Iggy looks much darker and is wearing a black wig.

"I'm the same color as I always am, just in a dimly lit room with red lights," she tweeted. "It's the same makeup from every other part of the video just with a Smokey eye and different wig."

She continued, "I can't care about something that ridiculous and baseless."

"I'm wearing a shade 6 in armarni foundation, it's the same shade I've worn for the last 3 years," she continued. "It's the same shade in every music video since sally Walker. Suddenly I wear a black wig in a club scene & its an issue."

Iggy has always faced criticism throughout her career of exploiting Black culture. Her blaccent has been a huge cause of contention. She does look darker in the video.
