Azealia Banks gets shut down by 14-year old Disney star following homophobic rant

14-year-old Skai Jackson held her own against the bigoted star, following the singer’s racist and homophobic attack on Zayn Malik.

Azealia Banks started insulting Skai Jackson – who appears on the Disney Channel series Bunk’d – after the actress advised Banks “to simmer down a little.”

The angry rapper then advised Jackson “to grow some hips and start ur menses. stay in a child’s place.”

“When a no hip having 14 year old has more class than you. Worry about your career. Get one,” Jackson quickly replied.

Banks – who seems to like arguing with a child almost as much as she loves behaving like one – tweeted back: “lol ur mom’s been pimping you out to disney since you were a lil girl. lets see what you end up like at 21. bye!”

But it was Jackson who had the last word – keeping her cool whilst putting the crazed Banks to utter shame.

“I had a career before Disney and I’m sure I will after! And I know I won’t turn out like you bitter and miserable! Fix ur life,’ the Disney wrote.

“And I’m sure my mom did a wayyy better job then yours did! You give black women a bad name. I’ll be praying for you.”

After Banks began to tweet vulgar insults to Jackson, clearly aware she’d lost this Twitter war, the young starlet shuts the rapper down once and for all.

“Go fix your edges before you come at me! #byenow Hide behind your weaves much?”

The singer is known for her high-profile anti-gay Twitter tirades – though she claims she cannot be homophobic because she identifies as bisexual.

Banks, who has not released a successful single in four years, previously defended using the word ‘faggot’ by claiming it is not a gay slur.

Writing about former One Direction singer Malik, she referred to him as a “faggot”, a “sand nigga”, a “dick rider”, a “punjab” and a “paki”.
