Azealia Banks Called Zayn A “Curry Scented Bitch” And Twitter’s Desi Women SHUT. IT. DOWN
The rapper said the British singer had copied some of her ideas and that his new video for Like I Would looked like the one she made for her track Yung Rapunxel.
You decide if she was right about the copycat act
“I’m not mad about this though. Zayn is a cutie pie,” she wrote under a series of screengrabs from two videos.
Zayn didn’t directly respond to Azealia but tweeted “no lies… I see you reaching but I don’t care”.
He followed that by writing “my @s too good for you”.
Those comments led to a racist and homophobic rant from Azealia Banks.
We can’t show you exactly what she wrote but it included: “@zaynmalik dude, I make better music than you. Simmer down with that fake white boy rebellion and that wannabe Bieber swag.
“All those white boys in 1D disrespected you and made you their PET. You were only apart of 1D to draw brown attention. You are and ALWAYS will be a TOKEN to the UK.”
Zayn hasn’t replied to her comments.
Malik responded with a couple of tweets seemingly aimed at Banks…
Which is when things escalated, as Banks hit back with a rant that contained a lot of racist and homophobic undertones.
Indian origin comedian Jasmeet “JusReign” Singh blew up the thread after taking it upon himself to roast Banks for every slur she tweeted.
But it was when Banks used the term “curry scented bitch” that desis on Twitter decided that they needed to shut things down.
Women started posting pictures of themselves under the hashtag #CurryScentedBitch to counter Banks’s use of the term.
The hashtag blew up and started trending around the world.
Hundreds of desi women uploaded photos of themselves aimed at Banks.
Meanwhile, Banks took to Periscope to continue her rant against Malik and South Asians.
