Sunday was an all-around bad day for Iggy Azalea. Not only did she lose in each of the four Grammy categories in which she was nominated, she did not perform at the event, and ended up in a Twitter dispute with Papa John’s Pizza.
The “Fancy” rapper was in the running for Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and Best Rap Album but left the event empty-handed.
Before the ceremony, she complained about a horrible customer-service experience with Papa John’s. According to Iggy, after she ordered a cheese pizza, the delivery person gave her number to a relative, who sent the rap star a text message.
Throughout the evening, Iggy directed a series of tweets to the fast-food chain, accusing the company of neglecting to protect her privacy.
While her messages were retweeted and favorited thousands of times, some Twitter users had little sympathy for Azalea. Some of those critics attributed her frustration to her Grammy snubs.
Iggy did find support, however, from one of Papa John’s competitors, DiGiorno Pizza:
UPDATE: Papa John’s has released the following statement: “Privacy of our customers and employees is extremely important to us. Papa John’s has taken appropriate disciplinary action with regard to the employee involved. We are reaching out directly to Ms. Azalea and hope to resolve this incident and make it right.”
