Bad idea, as Banks then turned her vitriol on the teen actress. It got ugly y’all.
Banks appears to have since deleted her tweets, but she began by tweeting to Jackson “and you need to grow some hips and start ur menses. stay in a child’s place.” Jackson came back with “@AZEALIABANKS When a no hip having 14 year old has more class than you. Worry about your career. Get one.”
Let’s just say the back and forth was a lot. Social media star Awesomely Luvvie has one of the best play-by-plays
of the epic exchange (including the deleted tweets) we’ve seen yet, so thank us later.
It all proved to be too much for the organizers of London’s Rinse FM’s Born & Bred Festival, who on Wednesday tweeted that, “We have decided to cancel Azealia Banks’ headline appearance at Rinse Born & Bred. Rinse Born & Bred is a celebration of rave culture and has been created for EVERYONE. We celebrate inclusivity and equality.”
Banks was repentant – sort of.
She tweeted, “Big apologies to anyone who was offended by any of the things I said. Not sorry I said it. But sorry for the way I made people feel” in a post that has since also disappeared from the site.
Now there are calls to have her Twitter account suspended.
