Rapper Azealia Banks launched into a foulmouthed tirade of racist tweets on Tuesday using homophobic language to blast former One Direction star Zayn Malik for allegedly stealing her musical ideas, US weekly reports.
Banks blasted Malik, his fans, and British black women in general after she accused him of copying her work.
“Damn Zayn be mood boarding the f–k out of me,” she wrote via Instagram, sharing stills from his latest video for “Like I Would,” and other images of her work that she claimed were very similar.
“I’m not mad about this though,” she added. “Zayn is a cutie pie.”
Malik responded on Twitter saying “@AZEALIABANKS why you been saying nasty things about me? I wasn’t talking about you lol.”
Banks then engaged in a twitter rant aimed at the singer.
“U.S.A IS ABOUT TO TEACH YOU WHO NOT TO F**K WITH!!” she said.

“When your entire extended family has been obliterated by good ol the U.S of A will you still be trying to act like a white boy pretending to be black? Do you understand that you are a sand n—– who emulates white boys’ renditions of black male hood? Do you know how lost and culture less you are?”
“No lies … I see you reaching but I don’t care,” Malik tweeted.
While adding that, “My @’s too good for you.”
His response only added fuel and triggered additional assault from Banks who then tweeted, “Dude, I make better music than you. Simmer down with that fake white boy rebellion and that wannabe beiber swag.”
“Lol u a b***h n–ga for even responding like that. Keep sucking this yung rapunxel d**k u hairy curry scented b***h.” she added.
“Imma start calling you punjab you dirty b***h,” she went on. “You a d**k rider for real for real. Ride this d***k until the wheels fall off Punjab.”
Malik fans who came to his rescue also fell victim to her tweets.
“LOL, black girls in the UK make themselves look bad w/o my help,” she wrote.
“Those teeth? and terrible weaves?!?!? HAHHAHA.”
According to US Weekly, Singer Lily Allen got involved, taking exception to another of Banks’ tweets in which she claimed she would “bear arms” when she traveled to the U.K.
“Girl, I have armed security! I’m an American girl! I exercise my 2nd amendment rights EVERYWHERE I go!!” Banks had written. “Ha! We’ll see !!!! #AMERICANA #PUBLICFIGURE #ARMEDSECURITY”
“Why do the Police shut down @GIggs or @nines1ace raves but @AZEALIABANKS is cool to just come here threatening to bring arms ?don’t get it,” she wrote.
