Rapper Azealia Banks has a history of homophobia.

Azealia Banks has been kicked off Twitter.

Banks went on a homophobic and racist rant against One Direction star Zayn Malik. She called him ‘faggot’ and a ‘dick rider’.

She also called Malik, who is of English-Pakistani descent a ‘curry scented bitch’. The rapper also tweeted ‘imma start calling you punjab you dirty bitch’.

One Direction fans had petitioned for Banks’ account to be suspended by Twitter.

Twitter can suspend the accounts of its users accounts if they engage in ‘abusive tweets or behavior’.

It’s not known if the bisexual rapper’s account has been suspended permanently or temporarily.

‘We do not comment on individual accounts, for privacy and security reasons,’ a Twitter representative tells the New York Daily News.

Banks had already been removed as a headliner from a London rap festival, Rinse: Born & Bred.

She claims her anger towards Malik stems from him allegedly copying her look in his most recent music video.

She said in screengrabbed messages: ‘I said what I said to Zayn because I was angry. He felt as if he was too good to acknowledge me yet not to (sic) good to copy my creativity. I had to remind him that we were both in the same boat in this industry and people of color’.
