If you thought Azealia Banks was code for a venereal disease, then, perhaps, you can probably be forgiven. Banks, an American rapper (of sorts), found herself in hot-water Wednesday after making less than stellar comments about British singer Zayn Malik. Banks, took it upon herself to think that a tweet from Malik that read “I see you watching but I don’t care” was actually about her.
But it wasn’t. But that didn’t stop banks from attacking Zayn on Twitter with gay remarks and racial slurs about his ethnic background (we won’t talk about what they were here). It didn’t stop there, no joke, Banks later took to Twitter again (and almost) came for 14-year-old Disney star Skai Jackson. Jackson, tweeted following the remarks from Banks on Malik that “she needed to simmer down”.
Jackson, 14, proved to be the classy of the exchange after she snapped back “When a no hip having 14-year-old has more class than you, worry about your career. Get one”. Organizers for Rinse FM’s upcoming London festival have since sacked Banks from the festival citing her outrageous and racist comments about Malik
