Additionally, Azalea wrote somewhat of an ambiguous statement about her own mental state, stating that over the years she's been left exhausted by all the unfair criticism.
"Sometimes I really feel exhausted by the world," Azalea wrote in the post, "it feels like ANY thing I do becomes an opportunity for people to tell me why I'm s***, why my music sucks, my clothes are ugly, why I don't matter or why I'm a horrible person... I'm worn down."
Azalea finished her statement by expressing her desire for everyone to be more kind to one another, considering "how depressing it is" to see "people enjoy being awful to another."
