Sarah Palin turned to Facebook Tuesday afternoon to respond to a female rapper who said this week that the former Alaska governor needed to be gang-banged by a group of black men.

On Monday, rapper Azealia Banks wrote in a series of now-deleted tweets that Palin "needs" to perform oral sex on black men and let the "biggest burliest blackest negroes ... run a train on her" before she can "start talking s*** about 'black people willingly accepting slavery.'"

It appeared that Banks had read a satirical article about Palin saying Black people "liked" slavery and believed it to be true.

Palin hit back in a strongly-worded statement on Facebook.

"Hey Female Rapper - listen up, little darling. No one has any idea what you're wigging out about in these bizarre, violent rants against me, but you're obviously not exercising enough intelligence to acknowledge you've been sucked into believing some fake interview in which I supposedly offered comments representing the antithesis of my truth," the former Republican vice presidential nominee wrote.

Palin continued, "In this life, you're blessed to have been given an influential platform. So have I. Why don't we strengthen both our platforms and work together on something worthwhile - like condemning racism, along with empowering young women to defend themselves against a most misogynist, degrading, devastating assault perpetrated by evil men - rape."

"Thanks. And now I'll go through my young daughter's playlist to make sure there hasn't been any inadvertent addition of any anti-woman, pro-rape garbage that you seem to endorse, which perpetuates the cultural challenges we face in America. I encourage other parents to do the same," Palin concluded. "God bless you Ms. Banks, as you consider a change of heart."

Banks later published a response to Palin's letter, writing: "I actually, really like you."

"While many other American people may see you as someone to be ridiculed, I truly believe that you possess a certain “je ne sais quoi,” (a french term which is often interpreted to denote one’s inexplicable charisma.) Given a bit of book-reading/media-training/patience, that charisma could become your magic carpet. There is something very charismatic and misunderstood about you," Banks wrote. "The misunderstood bit oftentimes reminds me of myself. You’re very passionate about the things you believe in, super determined, and most certainly aware of who you are and where you stand in this world, as a parent, as a politician, but most importantly, as a woman."

The rapper said she sincerely apologized for her comments and was under the impression Palin's remarks on slavery were true when she posted them.

"In my honest defense, i was completely kidding. I happen to have a really crass, New-York-City sense of humor, and regularly make silly jokes in attempts make light of situations which make me uncomfortable," Banks explained.

"All in All, Woman to Woman, I hope you will accept my sincerest apology," she concluded.

In a postscript, Banks said she is "an EXTREMELY intelligent woman" and contended that "Hey Female Rapper" was Palin's way of saying "Hey little Stereotypical Black, Thing!"

"If Bristol Palin listened to my music she probably wouldn’t have all those cotdamn kids!!!! ;-P #sis #iud #stayinschool #causeitsthebest," she concluded.
