Azealia Banks launches racist Twitter tirade against Zayn Malik

Azealia Banks has branded Zayn Malik a "curry scented b***h" in a racist and homophobic rant on Twitter.

The 24-year-old rapper has launched an expletive-laden xenophobic tirade against the British-born singer, 23, which kicked off on Tuesday (10.05.16) when she claimed he was inspired by her for his new music video for 'Like I Would'.

Alongside a mock-up image of the two stars, the defiant rapper tweeted: "Damn Zayn be mood boarding the s**t out of me... I'm not mad about this though. Zayn is a cutie pie (sic)"

But when Zayn replied: "No lies... I see you reaching but I don't care" before adding "My @'s too good for you (sic)", Azealia flew into a rage and posted a string of abusive and cruel taunts directed at the former One Direction star.

She wrote: "@zaynmalik dude, I make better music than you. Simmer down with that fake white boy rebellion and that wannabe Bieber swag. Lol u a b**tch n***a for even responding like that (sic)."

Azealia then erupted with a string of vile racist comments and took aim at Zayn and his girlfriend, model Gigi Hadid, comparing her to a Disney princess and using a derogatory remark to identify his Asian heritage.

She said: "Keeping sucking this young rapunxel d**k u hairy curry scented b**ch.

"Imma start calling you punjab you dirty b***h. You a d**k rider for real. Ride this d**k until the wheels fall off Punjab (sic)."

But she didn't stop there.

Attacking his boy band past, the outspoken rapper said Zayn's One Direction bandmates, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, who are all white, used him as a "pet".

She said: "You were the token brown boy. All those white boys in 1D disrespected you and made you their PET. You were only apart of 1D to draw brown attention. You are and ALWAYS will be a TOKEN to the UK.(sic)"

Azealia then retweeted posts Zayn had written including a black and white selfie and wrote alongside it: "I eat sand for breakfast and suck d**k for dinner.(sic)"

Zayn has remained silent throughout but an angry Azealia has continued her rant on Wednesday (11.05.16) attacking the UK rap scene.

She wrote: "The UK really can't rap though. UK RAP is just a disgrace to rap culture in general. UK rappers NEVER have swag. It's ALWAYS FORCED.(sic)"
