Azealia Banks may be banned from Twitter, but she is still using other social media channels to start fights with people who are much more famous than her. According to People, Banks most recently clashed with Rihanna over Donald Trump's unconstitutional travel ban that targets Muslims.
On Sunday, Rihanna tweeted her feelings on the ban to her 69+ million followers.
Of course, Banks, one of Donald Trump's few "celebrity" supporters and professional provocateur, went after Rihanna by writing (and subsequently deleting) this rant:
As far as rihanna (who isn’t a citizen, and can’t vote) and all the rest of the celebrities who are using their influence to stir the public, you lot really REALLY need to shut up and sit down. Stop chastising the president. It’s stupid and pathetic to watch. All of these confused people confuse other confused people. Hoping the president fails is like getting on an airplane and hoping the pilot crashes. What makes you think, the the USA is going to enter the Middle East destroy a bunch of shit and pull out without any real repercussions ????
The Barbados-born singer hit back at Banks by posting this black and white portrait of herself on Instagram with some purposely shady hashtags that likely reference Banks' controversial video of her cleaning the closet where she sacrificed chickens for years as part of her practicing witchcraft (yes, this is a real thing, and you can read about it here.)
Well, apparently Banks took the hashtags extremely personally because she then took a screen shot of Rihanna's post and put it on her own Instagram with this rather colorful caption.
“What rihanna meant was …. “I GREW UP PLAYING SOCCER IN A DIRT YARD WITH A COCONUT AND OPEN MY LEGS FOR ANY AND EVERY MOTHERF—KER WHO I THINK I CAN GET TO WRITE ME SONGS OR BUY ME DRUGS. I CAN BARELY PERFORM BECAUSE I LINE MY BROWN BLUNTS WITH CRYSTAL METH AND AM OFTEN VERY WINDED ON STAGE.”
Rihanna responded to the (now deleted) attack with a simple image: a person with an American flag covering their face and the caption: "the face you make when you screaming in an empty room."
Azealia Banks then made a series of videos targeting Rihanna where she mocked her tweets and Instagrams, saying things like "Rihanna please stop being stupid and read some books. I beg you." She also threatened "I Am A Witch, don’t push me. Knocking me down is the easy part. If you want me to stay there trust me, you will need back up." She also allegedly posted a picture of Rihanna's phone number on Instagram with the caption "bombs away!" The number has been disconnected and Banks later deleted the multiple videos and images that targeted Rihanna.
Rihanna dropped the feud much earlier than Banks, choosing to post about her recent charity trip to benefiting Malawi schoolchildren instead.
