Azealia Banks appears to have done some soul-searching and is now remorseful for her recent racist and homophobic comments on social media.
The 24-year-old controversial rapper recently fired some racist and homophobic shots at former One Direction member, Zayn Malik and also didn’t hesitate to take jabs at 14-year old Disney Star, Skai Jackson who decided to wade into the messy twitter drama.
Following her insensitive comments, Azealia was dropped from headlining a cultural festival in London and subsequently suspended from Twitter. Azealia had initially refused to apologise for her comments and issued a statement on Twitter justifying why she had gone off on Zayn Malik and Skai Jackson.
Now, Banks has had a rethink and is apologetic for her behaviour. “Employing racial/ sexual slurs/stereotypes in attempts to make fun of or degrade anyone or group is absolutely unacceptable and for anyone. And for that I give my deepest apologies“she wrote on her Instagram page.
Banks has gone on several twitter wars with celebs like Erykah Badu, Iggy Azalea, Wale and even former vice presidential candidate, Sarah Palin in the past. So is she sincerely ready to turn a new leaf?
