Azealia Banks has taken to social media to share her thoughts amid the passing of DC Young Fly's longtime partner, Ms Jacky Oh! Banks used the opportunity to air ongoing beef she has with DC Young Fly, which stems from her appearance on Wild 'N Out. Shortly after filming the 2018 episode, Banks called the show out for alleged mistreatment on set after DC Young Fly joked that she was "ugly." Many social media users are now calling Banks out for her "disgusting" behavior amid the young mother's passing.

"DC Young Fly spent years disguising his own deeply rooted hatred of self as joked pointed at women's beauty," Banks begins, "Projecting his own feelings about his own ugliness unto women perfectly secure in their own skin." "In the end... I won," she continues, "That [Jacky Oh] girl must have been so deeply insecure about herself." Banks goes on to cite "The nerve of DC to call such a gorgeous woman as Azealia Banks... ugly on National television while a bunch of black people laughed." She writes, "Ironically, deat at 32 exactly on my 32nd birthday," adding, "You ni***s are going to learn to stop f***ing with me."

A spokesperson for BET also shared a statement shortly after her death. “We are deeply saddened by the passing of Jacklyn Smith, known to the world as Jacky Oh, a talented Wild N’ Out family member whose impact will be forever treasured and missed,” it reads. The statement continues, “Jacky Oh was a loving friend and beloved colleague of the Wild N’ Out cast throughout five seasons. More importantly, she was a tremendous mother to three beautiful children.
