LOS ANGELES, June 2 (UPI) -- Outspoken Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, the first artist since The Beatles to have two songs in the top slots on the Billboard Hot 100, took to Twitter on Monday to criticize online bullies.

Azalea, 23, chastised "Internet kids" for targeting musicians online. She also blasted fighting between fans.

"Just remember while your all at home online cracking jokes about artists etc that Most of you have done NOTHING. NOTHING! With your lives," she wrote. "Don't flex someone else's achievements. So many of you Internet kids quote the feats of others as if they were your own."

"And just to clarify for anyone who didn't understand that last statement goes out to people who bully others...," she added.

Azalea also criticized infighting between fans of different artists, calling it "disgusting."



She was likely referring to fans of another female rapper, Nicki Minaj, who started attacking Azalea online.

"Someone who's music you love doing great should never be an excuse to be awful to others. That's my point I suppose," Azalea said.
