The rapper said the British singer had copied some of her ideas and that his new video for Like I Would looked like the one she made for her track Yung Rapunxel.

She also had a go at Lil Kim, teenage Disney actress Skai Jackson and Nicki Minaj to name a few.

She has now said she wants to "extend her sincerest apologies to the world".

She has apologised on her Instagram account

Zayn didn't directly respond to Azealia last week but tweeted "no lies… I see you reaching but I don't care".

And then he wrote "my @s too good for you".

We can't show you the racist and homophobic rant she had at the former One Direction star, but it included: "@zaynmalik dude, I make better music than you. Simmer down with that fake white boy rebellion and that wannabe Bieber swag.

"All those white boys in 1D disrespected you and made you their PET. You were only apart of 1D to draw brown attention. You are and ALWAYS will be a TOKEN to the UK."

Zayn didn't reply to her comments.

Later on she said UK rap was just a disgrace to rap culture in general.

She also had a go at 14-year-old Disney actress Skai Jackson as well as Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj.

Soon after east London radio station Rinse FM's Born and Bred Festival cancelled her headline appearance.

They explained their reasons on Twitter.

And then Twitter suspended her account.

The Metro reported that the Home Office was considering banning Banks from entering the UK too.

It's also reported she has been dropped by her UK booking agent, Primary Talent International.

Her name has been removed from the agency's roster on their website, whilst a visit to her artist page displays an error message.

Primary Talent International have not yet confirmed that Banks has been dropped.
