Iggy Azalea attends the Roc Nation pre-Grammy brunch at One World Trade Center on Jan. 27, 2018 in New York City. 

"Every single woman in the entertainment business has stepped up again and again and been met with the door to the boys clubs cigar bar slammed in their face," Azalea tweets.

Iggy Azalea is the latest female musician to respond to Recording Academy President Neil Portnow, who said that the glaring lack of female winners at the Grammys on Sunday was a result of women in the music industry needing to “step up.”

In a series of tweets, the Australian rapper said she doesn’t necessarily think there is a need to boycott the award show -- yet -- but explained how the comments are “infuriating for women in entertainment."

Azalea is one of many female artists who have called out the out-of-touch comments. On, Monday, Pink, Halsey and Charli XCX also took to social media with a similar sentiment, saying women don’t need to step up because they already "owned music this year."

Portnow's comment was in response to a question about the fact that only two women took the stage during the telecast, with best new artist Alessia Cara as the only woman to accept a solo award onstage. He has since said the comments were "taken out of context," adding that he "wasn't as articulate as he should have been."
