This escalated quickly.
Azealia Banks has leaked Rihanna’s personal phone number online following a huge feud with the singer.
The beef started after Rihanna had responded to Donald Trump’s decision to restrict entry to the U.S. from seven Muslim-majority countries.
Disgusted! The news is devastating! America is being ruined right before our eyes! What an immoral pig you have to be to implement such BS!!— Rihanna (@rihanna) January 29, 2017
However Azealia Banks, who has frequently stated her allegiance to Trump, threw shade at Rihanna and declared her full support for the controversial ban.
“As far as Rihanna (who isn’t a citizen, and can’t vote) and the rest of the celebrities who are using their influence to stir the public, you lot really need to shut up and sit down,” she began.
You don't get to show up in another man's country, kill his young , his wives, ruin his home and think a peace talk Is going to be the end of it. ITS NOT. There's absolutely no way to end this war but to finish it ourselves. It's TERRIBLE, do I agree with it , NO, do I personally like what's happening , NO! But I can say that as an American who enjoys her safety and overall ability to maintain a certain level of ignorance as pertains to the world outside of our borders , I am 100% shook about open borders and would be reallllllllllllly scared for my self and my family if any parts of that war began to become real on this soil. I like my life the way it is. IM JUST A YOUNG FEMALE RAPPER TRYING TO MAKE MY PAY, I personally didn't sign up for any of this extra shit and I refuse to involve myself in matters that don't have anything to do with the African American populace. This is an extension of the crusades , I was in west Africa killing chickens and being primitive while y'all was over there arguing about who the savior is. Please miss me with all of this shit. Pass me a chicken and leave me the fuck alone !
Without mentioning Banks directly, RiRi clapped back at the rapper on Instagram by acknowledging her native Barbados and referencing Azealia Bank’s admission that she sacrifices live chickens as part of a ritual.
“The face you make when you a immigrant,” she captioned the post, alongside the hashtags #stayawayfromthechickens, #iheartnuggets and #saveourhens.
Azealia Banks responded with a series of vile comments under Rihanna’s post on Instagram.
Banks also appeared to text Rihanna’s phone, claiming that Beyonce is overshadowing her achievements.
RiRi responded by temporarily making the text message her Twitter profile picture.
Azealia Banks then took things to another level by leaking Rihanna’s mobile phone number to the world.
Interestingly, there were rumours circulating on social media that Azealia Banks had recorded music for Rihanna's album 'ANTI' but was later removed. However this is yet to be confirmed.
Meanwhile, Azealia Banks appears to be continuing her social media antics in 2017, following a series of high-publicized feuds with Iggy Azalea, Zayn Malik, T.I. and more.
