Banks was set to headline at Rinse Born & Bred festival in the UK in July, but Banks’ racist comments towards Zayn Malik caused the festival to drop her from the lineup.

The feud between Banks and Malik all started when Banks called out the former One Direction star for copying her video. Malik then posted on Twitter “I see you reaching but I don’t care…My @’s too good for you.”
Banks lashed out with a slew of derogatory and racist tweets, which have since been hidden from her Twitter account: Worst of all, one tweet stated, “lol u a b*tch n**** for even responding like that. Keep sucking this yung rapunxel d*ck u hairy curry scented bitch.”
Malik responded in a single tweet: “@AZEALIABANKS why you been saying nasty things about me? I wasn’t talking about you lol?”Read more to check out Azealia Banks’ other Twitter tirades:
