Azealia Banks Rants on Instagram After Having Her Twitter Account Suspended
Celebrity

The controversial rapper takes to Instagram to share a number of lengthy posts in which she explains her recent feuds with Zayn Malik and Skai Jackson.

AceShowbiz - %cAzealia Banks%' racist Twitter tirade against %cZayn Malik% and %cSkai Jackson% costs her her Twitter account. After attacking the British singer and the young Disney star on the micro-blogging site earlier this week, the Harlem raptress got her account suspended indefinitely.

When reached out, a Twitter rep refused to give comments on the suspension. However, the social media's support page does mention that an account may be suspended "temporarily or, in some cases, permanently" if it "engages in abusive behavior, like sending threats to others or impersonating other accounts."

Banks was, of course, mad after finding out about her account suspension. Since she's no longer allowed to post anything on Twitter, she unleashed her anger on Instagram. On Thursday, May 12, she shared a meme and wrote alongside it, "THEM MOTHERF**KERS GOT ME."

Later, she reportedly created a new Twitter account and made remarks about "whiteness" being a "mental illness." That account was later suspended too, prompting her to return to Instagram and post, "REALIZE that I insulted Indians, Pakistani, black folk... And my Twitter didn't get suspended until I said 'WHITENESS IS A MENTAL ILLNESS' you guys need to pay the f**k attention to what is happening here."

Later that day, she reposted a lengthy statement made by Angel Ramirez-Jordan and agreed with him that she's "letting your frustration turn into something ugly." In the equally-lengthy caption, Banks justified her attack on Malik, whom she accused of copying her music video.

"Zayn feeling as though he's too good to acknowledge me, yet not too good to STEAL and copy my art is f**king HURTFUL," she said. "And it happens everywhere. People steal and copy my art ALL THE TIME and try to pretend as if they are somehow above me when they are the ones without their own creative ideas to begin with."

This is 100|percent| true. Black folk are the first to discard their own especially when white media/society hangs one of us out for public crucifixion. From the minute I appeared on the scene I was told by black men in black media that I was ugly, skinny, had bad hair, was weird, made music for white people etc... And those messages penetrated the social consciousness of black America very quickly. I've been belittled, berated, stolen from, called crazy when making clear and true observations about the world we live in only to then have all of those things reveal themselves to be truths. I'm not blaming anyone or anything for any of my actions but I think it's really important to for people outside of us (black folk) to understand the detrimental effects of whiteness and white supremacy/white cultural pervasiveness on black peoples MENTAL HEALTH as a whole and the MENTAL HEALTH of black individual herself. Zayn feeling as though he's too good to acknowledge me, yet not too good to STEAL and copy my art is fucking HURTFUL. And it happens everywhere. People steal and copy my art ALL THE TIME and try to pretend as if they are somehow above me when they are the ones without their own creative ideas to begin with. Music industry politics which completely mimic racial social constructs allow people like Zayn to hide behind his popularity amongst white folk when he himself is aiding in the work of white supremacy. Cultural Erasure. Another instance of a "white" artist taking credit for the black artists hard work and passion. And truthfully, it's pushing me over the fucking edge. White society grinds down the self esteem of black artists to the point where we are expected to be silent about such obvious transgressions.

She also explained her Twitter feud with 14-year-old Jackson, saying the "Jessie" actress "is an unremarkable black actress filling a black girl niche on a white television station. She has NO CLUE of what this world will odder her in terms of disregard, artistic theft, shame. She needs to stay in a child's place and be a child."
