UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE: Azealia posts seemingly genuine apology on her now private Instagram, addressed to...the world:

UPDATE UPDATE: Azealia's Twitter account has been suspended.


UPDATE, 5/11/16, 2 P.M.: Azealia appears to have deleted much of her Twitter timeline and posted a sort of apology/explanation for her comments in a series of screenshots of her phone.

She begins by telling Zayn her comments are really meant to remind him that musicians of color are all "in the same boat" in the music industry.

She also claimed that she knew Skai Jackson's account was being tweeted from by her mother, and this was a conversation she wanted to have with her.


Another sunrise, another temple-rubbing Twitter war from Azealia Banks.

This time, the polarizing-is-not-even-the-word rapper conjured the wrath of One Direction's rabid fanbase, after accusing its former member Zayn Malik of ripping her off, specifically in his new video for "Like I Would."

Azealia began her tirade (this was after another endorsement of Donald Trump, mind you) albeit somewhat amicable.

Damn Zayn be mood boarding the fuck of out me 😳.. I'm not mad about this though. Zayn is a cutie pie

When the Zayn-iacs began pouring into AB's mentions, she started getting...terse...

Whether this Zayn tweet was directed at Azealia remains...disputed...

But she seemed to take it that way...

And got racist. Surprise! Not.

Really fucking racist.


Here we go.


Let's add in "faggot," too, for good measure!

Zayn responded...

And so did Azealia, again, unfortunately.

God dammit.

Rinse, Born and Bred Festival in London subsequently dropped her from their lineup.

While this was happening, Azealia ALSO got into a fight with 14-year-old Disney Channel star, Skai Jackson. 14-YEARS-OLD.

Regardless of the 10 year age difference, Skai came back hard and smart...

It's like Azealia is just constantly swatting at the air while screaming.

I do hope Azealia gets whatever help she needs, and gets back to keeping it about the genius music she's gifted us with over the past few years--the music that, unfortunately, has been usurped by this vile behavior.
