After issuing a half apology on her now suspended Twitter account, rapper Azealia Banks finally released an apology statement for her racial slurs against singer, Zayn Malik and Disney Channel star, Skai Jackson.
“Dear World, Now that the immediacy of the infamous incident has worn off, I’ve had some time to decompress & take a more rational assessment of things. I want to extend my sincerest apologies to the world.”
“Employing racial/sexual slurs/stereotypes in attempts to make fun of or degrade another person or group is absolutely unacceptable and is not fair or fun for anyone,” she continued. “Allowing my anger to get the best of me, I’ve managed to insult millions of people without reason. And for that I give my deepest apologies.”
During her Twitter rant, which is now deleted, Banks called Malik a “hairy curry scented b***h” and a “f****t” after he appeared to subtweet her. She had previously suggested that the former One Direction star had stolen her visual style with his new video for “Like I Would.”
When Jackson chimed in and tweeted that Banks should “simmer down a little,” the rapper told the 14-year-old Disney Channel actress: “You need to grow some hips and start ur menses. Stay in a child’s place.”
Following her series of highly offensive tweets, during which she also took a dig at the U.K. grime scene, Banks has been dropped from the lineup of Rinse FM’s Born & Bred’s summer music festival in London.
