Twitter Suspends Azealia Banks Account Accusing Zayn Malik in Racist Rant


Part-time rapper and full-time Twitter troll Azealia Banks has had her account suspended after she went on a racist and homophobic rant against former One Direction member Zayn Malik. 

After calling Malik, among other things, a “curry scented b***h,” Banks got in another feud with Disney star Skai Jackson.

Wednesday’s feud was just the latest of many for Banks. Recently, she took aim at Sarah Palin in a rant so violent that the former Alaska governor said she would sue. 

A representative for Twitter has not responded to Mashable’s request for comment.

Twitter’s support page says that an account can be suspended for “abusive tweets or behavior.”

“We may suspend an account if it has been reported to us as violating our Rules surrounding abuse,” it reads. “When an account engages in abusive behavior, like sending threats to others or impersonating other accounts, we may suspend it temporarily or, in some cases, permanently.”

Banks pledged to stay off social media, deleting her Twitter account in March. That didn’t last long.
