Azealia Banks is arguably hip-hop’s queen of online shade and she’s made a name for herself not only for her innovative and genre-bending music, but also her long list of beefs with fellow celebrities. But now it seems like Banks’ fiery online temper has finally caught up with her because Twitter banned her this week over her latest celebrity feud.

The drama all began earlier this week when Banks blasted former One Direction singer Zayn Malik and accused him of stealing her style for his new “Like I Would” video.

After Malik fired subtle responses at Banks, the rapper went into shade overdrive and hurled a series of prejudice and homophobic tweets at Malik.

“@zaynmalik lol u a b—- n—- for even responding like that. Keep sucking this yung rapunxel d— u hairy curry scented b—-,” Banks wrote in one tweet, while in another she wrote, “Token sand n—- pout: “I was the least celebrated in the white boy group because I’m brown.”

During Banks’ shade fest, 14-year-old Disney channel actress Skai Jackson chimed in and advised Banks to “simmer down.” That’s when Banks turned her attention to Jackson and scolded her for jumping in the beef.

“And you need to grow some hips and start ur menses. stay in a child’s place,” Banks wrote to Jackson.

That’s when Jackson fired back with a now infamous response to Banks.

“@AZEALIABANKS a meme with 2.3 million Instagram followers. My memes are more relevant than you now that’s sad. Now bye Twitter troll,” Jackson said in one of her responses to Banks.

Never one to be silenced, Banks continued her rants against Malik and Jackson. But it looks like Twitter had enough of Banks’ controversial comments because yesterday it was revealed that the social media site had suspended Banks account.

Well, Banks didn’t seem too hurt by the news of her Twitter suspension because she went straight to Instagram and shared how she felt about the news, as well as her latest thoughts on Malik and Jackson. Read what she had to say after the cut.
