Let's start with the facts: racism ain't funny. Never was, never will be. Stupidity *IS* funny. Especially when it's a celebrity. Especially when it's Azealia Banks, again.
The woman isn't happy unless she's taking aim at a big celebrity, listing Kanye West, Iggy Azalea, Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar, TI, Rita Ora and A$AP Rocky among people she has pissed off in front of a rather large audience (everyone who has an internet connection).
Now ex-Directioner Zayn Malik joins the all-star cast of offenders, as rapper and full-time antagonist Azealia attacks him for the colour of his skin and the country he grew up in. Stay classy, Azealia.
It started off with a barbed comment about their similiar music videos:
"Reminds me of when Gigi hadid called herself slay-Z after I’d already come up with it. Gigi and Zayn r really big Azealia Banks fans", she went on.
To which Zayn responded (or at least looked like he did):
No lies ... I see you reaching but I don't care 🏽️— zayn (@zaynmalik) May 10, 2016
Then Azealia threw in some casual racism, for lols:
Do you understand that you are a sand nigger who emulates white boys' renditions of black male hood? https://t.co/fNAk8XI1dg— BRUJA DEL BLOQUE (@AZEALIABANKS) May 11, 2016
@zaynmalik you a dick rider for real for real. Ride this dick until the wheels fall off Punjab.— BRUJA DEL BLOQUE (@AZEALIABANKS) May 10, 2016
But Zayn kept it chill:
@AZEALIABANKS why you been saying nasty things about me ? I wasn't talking about you lol ?— zayn (@zaynmalik) May 11, 2016
Srsly, so chill:
My @'s too good for you— zayn (@zaynmalik) May 10, 2016
Then Brit radio station Capital FM got involved:
So naturally, she attacked the entire country:
Only fat english people who eat box tesco sandwiches, listen to UK radio at this hour. https://t.co/sqJarejmHL— BRUJA DEL BLOQUE (@AZEALIABANKS) May 11, 2016
Tesco sandwiches? Now you're really cutting us deep:
You know the kind with the hard accents, brown teeth and varicose veins who put extra mayo on their toast??? https://t.co/sqJarejmHL— BRUJA DEL BLOQUE (@AZEALIABANKS) May 11, 2016
