Iggy Azalea drifts further into oblivion: The garbling rapper pulled out of headlining Pittsburgh Pride after a number of LGBT advocacy groups criticized her inclusion and boycotted the event, prompting Bruce Kraus, the president of the city council (who also happens to be the city’s first openly gay elected official), to support the boycott. LGBT groups criticized the selection as “insensitive,” no doubt because of Azalea’s homophobic and racist history. In a statement released on Twitter, Azalea said, “I feel my participation at this point would only serve to further distract from the true purpose of the event.”
