Nikki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, Eminem, Zayn Malik, T.I and Tinny... the beef just never stops! From wild to insane, inappropriate and just plain mean comments, this controversial superstar airs her mind without giving a hoot indeed. 

Today we bring you top 5 most controversial Azealia Banks moments:

Banks versus Iggy Azalea

This was one hell of a long….fight! Her fight with the Australian rapper is probably her most infamous. It all started in 2012 when Banks got upset over Iggy Azalea dubbing herself a “runway slave” in her track “D.R.U.G.S” – Azalea is white and Banks labelled her “Igloo Azalea”. T.I got in the mix and defended Azalea signing her to his label, of course, she lashed at him, dubbing him “Shoe shining” (a racial term).

Twitter gives Azealia the boot

Following her racist outburst against One Direction star Zayn Malik using a number of homophobic and racial slurs, Azealia bagged suspension from Twitter. She had accused the star of copying a music video of hers for his single -‘Like I would’. She referred to him as: a “faggot”, a “sand nigga”, a “d**k rider”, a “punjab” and a “paki”.  “your mother is a dirty refugee who won’t be granted asylum.” The controversial celeb spat. She later offered a public apology.

Rape: Azealia Bank versus former governor

The wide mouthed star made series of graphic tweets which led the former governor to start discussing with her attorneys.

Spurred by a certain fabricated post which indicted Sarah Palin of stating categorically that black folks accepted slavery willingly and that “Negroes loved being slaves and were doing just fine under our rules”, so she suggested her audience “find the biggest burliest blackest Negroes and let them run a train on her”.

Nicki and Azealia Wax figure clash

Apparently not everyone was crazy about Minaj’s Madame Tussaud’s wax figure which she lovingly dubbed “iconic” and you don’t need a soothsayer to nail the culprit. Banks made a not so subtle comment about Nicki being on all fours, saying they should have created a figure where Nicki was standing with the mic.

Eminem comes for Banks

The iconic rapper dropped it big time when he dropped by “Sway in the Morning” and did a really hot controversial freestyle which took shots at; Caitlyn Jenner, Rita Ora and Azealia Banks and others and not one to let anything pass, Banks clapped back – “Eminem, you could be my little wrinkly faced lover in the wee hours,” she began her four-tweet reply.
