AceShowbiz - After refusing to apologize for her racist remarks in a series of rants, Azealia Banks finally relented. "Dear World," she issued a statement on Instagram. "Now that the immediacy of the infamous incident has worn off, I've had sometime to decompress & take a more rational assessment of things. I want to extend my sincerest apologies to the world."
"Employing racial/sexist slurs/stereotypes in attempt to make fun of or degrade another person or group is absolutely unacceptable and is not fair or fun for anyone," the female rapper went on. "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."
Azealia Banks was banned from Twitter after she hurled derogatory and racial slurs at Zayn Malik. The feud started after she accused him of copying her music video. Instead of apologizing, she took to Instagram to throw more insults. When she finally said sorry, her apology seemed to fall on deaf ears as Twitter still didn't lift the ban. Hours later, Banks went back to defend herself.
And as for curry, it's honestly some dumb nyc joke about cabs smelling like curry. I honestly wasn't trying to make a widespread statement about any group so much as just pulling out of my very limited bag of NYC insults. My mind didn't even go there when it came out of my mouth. I personally really enjoy curry and cook with it often. I feel compelled to clear the air with curry itself because that's a bridge I don't want to burn. I still want to be able to enjoy it freely without guilt or judgment. (BTW, black peoples traditionally cook with curry too.... Just saying).
The female rapper has been attacking everyone on Twitter. It makes her famous for her celebrity feuds instead of for her music. Beyonce Knowles, Nicki Minaj, Lady GaGa, Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora and Lily Allen became her targets in the past. She always seemed to get a pass before, but her luck ran out when it came to the loyal One Directioners. Aside from being banned from Twitter, she was also dropped from the lineup of a U.K. festival.
