Azealia Banks Twitter Account Suspended Following Her Racist Diatribes
Azealia Banks is having the worst week ever. After getting ethered by a 14-year-old Disney Channel star and booted off a U.K. music festival, the Harlem rapper’s Twitter account was suspended on Thursday (May 12).
The suspension comes following Banks’ racist rant against pop singer Zayn Malik and her attack on Disney star Skai Jackson.
Banks tried to explained why she went after Jackson claiming that she thought it was the child’s mother who was tweeting at her. "Big apologies to anyone who was offended by any of the things I said," she wrote in now since deleted tweets. "Not sorry I said it. But sorry for the way I made people feel."
The 24-year-old rapper was even more brutal with her attack against Zayn as she delivered a series of racist tweets at him. At one point she called the former One Director singer a "token sand n----."
Reps for Twitter would not comment on individual accounts for “privacy and security” reasons. But clearly they had some concerns regarding some of the acerbic tweets Banks have been writing as of late.
Of course, the internet has no chill and there’s already a hashtag #AzealiaGotSuspendedParty now trending on Twitter.
