Major diss! When ‘Parenthood’ star Monica Potter took the stage to present the People’s Choice Award for favorite hip hop artist, she introduced Iggy Azalea as ‘Igloo Australia!’ Yep, that’s the very same name Azealia Banks used when she attacked Iggy in a highly publicized Twitter tirade!
Guess we know where actress Monica Potter stands on the Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks feud! After Monica seemingly threw shade at Iggy during her intro at the People’s Choice Awards on Jan. 7, the rapper got the last laugh by winning the award — and then dissing Monica right back! Here’s what happened.
Monica Potter Disses Iggy Azalea At People’s Choice Awards — Calls Her Igloo
Take a look at the video below, which shows Monica, 43, and her Parenthood co-star Dax Shepard, 40, presenting the award for favorite hip hop artist.
Monica flubs several of the nominees’ names, calling one Dr. Drew (it’s not even clear who she means, considering the list did not include Dr. Dre) and then referring to Iggy as “Igloo Australia.” Yikes! While it is possible that the mispronunciation was simply a joke, it’s hard to give Monica a pass considering the ENTIRE WORLD has been talking about Azealia’s war on “Igloo Australia.”
Iggy seemed to return Monica’s diss when she took the stage to accept the award for favorite hip hop artist and totally flirted with Dax, while giving his co-star the cold shoulder.
Azealia Banks Attacks Iggy Azalea On Twitter Over Eric Garner Case
Azealia Banks, 23, slammed Iggy in December for exploiting black culture yet staying “silent” on important issues like the Eric Garner case.
After a New York grand jury decided not to indict Daniel Pantaleo in Eric’s death on Dec. 3, Azealia took to Twitter to call out Iggy, saying:
its funny to see people Like Igloo Australia silent when these things happen… Black Culture is cool, but black issues sure aren’t huh?

And that was just the beginning. She tweeted several more messages, including this one:
And the media needs to STOP trying to move igloo in on what Nicki has established. — CATTY NOIR (@AZEALIABANKS) December 4, 2014
