Azealia Banks’ racist Twitter tirade against Zayn Malik and Skai Jackson costs her her Twitter account. After attacking the British singer and the young Disney star on the micro-blogging site earlier this week, the Harlem raptress got her account suspended indefinitely.
When reached out, a Twitter rep refused to give comments on the suspension. However, the social media’s support page does mention that an account may be suspended “temporarily or, in some cases, permanently” if it “engages in abusive behavior, like sending threats to others or impersonating other accounts.”
Banks was, of course, mad after finding out about her account suspension. Since she’s no longer allowed to post anything on Twitter, she unleashed her anger on Instagram. On Thursday, May 12, she shared a meme and wrote alongside it, “THEM MOTHERF**KERS GOT ME.”
Later, she reportedly created a new Twitter account and made remarks about “whiteness” being a “mental illness.” That account was later suspended too, prompting her to return to Instagram and post, “REALIZE that I insulted Indians, Pakistani, black folk… And my Twitter didn’t get suspended until I said ‘WHITENESS IS A MENTAL ILLNESS’ you guys need to pay the f**k attention to what is happening here.”
Later that day, she reposted a lengthy statement made by Angel Ramirez-Jordan and agreed with him that she’s “letting your frustration turn into something ugly.” In the equally-lengthy caption, Banks justified her attack on Malik, whom she accused of copying her music video.
“Zayn feeling as though he’s too good to acknowledge me, yet not too good to STEAL and copy my art is f**king HURTFUL,” she said. “And it happens everywhere. People steal and copy my art ALL THE TIME and try to pretend as if they are somehow above me when they are the ones without their own creative ideas to begin with.”
