After calling Zayn Malik a "faggot," a "sand nigga" and a "dick rider," rap artist Azealia Banks was booted from Twitter.

The homophobic and racist attack against the former One Direction member allegedly started after Banks accused him of leaking her phone number, according to LGBTQ Nation. The Tweets have since been removed.


“When an account engages in abusive behavior, like sending threats to others or impersonating other accounts, we may suspend it temporarily or, in some cases, permanently,” reads Twitter on why accounts are banned for abusive behavior.


According to The Gaily Grind, Banks deleted over 21,000 tweets and said her remarks of Zayn were because she was "angry" because he allegedly copied her creativity. “I had to remind him that we were both in the same boat in this industry and people of color," she said. 


Following her ban on Twitter, Banks took to Instagram to react: "Crakkkas got Me again !!!!"


Twitter wasn't the only one to pull the plug on Banks — The RInse | Born & Bred Festival dropped her as the headliner for their June 5 event.


"Rise | Born & Bred Festival is a celebration of rave culture and has been created for EVERYONE," the Tweet read.  "We celebrate inclusivity and equality."
