She’s back at it again! Azealia Banks blasted Zayn Malik’s sizzling ‘GQ’ spread, and she went way below the belt with her comment. OUCH! We’ve got the juicy details on her latest diss to the former One Direction stud, here.
Azealia Banks, 25, is known for stirring up controversy with her button-pushing statements. So, of course, her latest remark directed towards Zayn Malik, 27, was no different. The “212” rapper took notice of Zayn’s new GQ spread on Aug. 11 and clearly wasn’t the least bit impressed, writing: “He legit looks like he used to be a girl. He gives me transman teas.” Yikes! In the pics, the former One Directioner can be seen rocking a plethora of edgy styles and showing off his fully-tatted arms. More than 36,000 people had already liked the snap, so many begged to differ with her transphobic sentiments.
Unfortunately, this is NOT the first time Azealia has targeted the “Pillowtalk” stud. In May, she slammed him for copying her style, highlighting several similarities between his music video for “Like I Would” and her video for “Chasing Time” in an Instagram pic. She started off relatively mellow, saying “Damn Zayn be mood boarding the f*ck of out me. I’m not mad about this though. Zayn is a cutie pie.” When he didn’t respond accordingly, she went into a full blown rant, calling him a “fa**ot” in addition to using racial slurs. Zero to 100 real quick!
Azealia seemed to go into some major damage control on May 16, sending her condolences to those she offended. She took to Instagram with the message: “I’ve had some time to decompress & take a more rational assessment of things. I want to extend my sincerest apologies to the world.” Shortly after, in July, Azealia said she was quitting social media “for good.” Hmm… She’s got a great career she can focus on — so we’re hoping she’ll stick with the whole mindset of: if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all.
