American rapper Azealia Banks, known for her controversial statements, has unleashed a scathing attack on Australian pop star Troye Sivan. The vicious rant came after Sivan expressed his admiration for Banks' hit single '212' by calling it his favorite pre-game anthem.
In a foul-mouthed Instagram tirade, Banks hurled insults at the 28-year-old Aussie singer, questioning his relevance and appearance. Banks dismissed Sivan as an "expired twink" and claimed that puberty had transformed him into a "doofy looking young man." She also suggested that Sivan might enter the spotlight by announcing that he is transgender.
This online confrontation isn't the first time the two artists have clashed. In 2018, Sivan made comments that didn't sit well with Banks, leading her to accuse him of entitlement and dismiss his desire to collaborate on a song.
Banks, without providing context, also expressed frustration with how she has been treated by undisclosed individuals in the music industry. She called on those who have used their platforms to spread unfounded rumors about her to take responsibility for their actions.
The controversial rapper, who previously made headlines in Australia when she labeled the country as racist and culturally devoid, has a history of engaging in public feuds with various Australian figures, including rapper Iggy Azalea and actor Russell Crowe.
The recent public spat between Banks and Sivan serves as another example of how celebrities' social media posts can quickly escalate into heated exchanges, attracting attention and stirring controversy in the process.
As of now, neither Banks nor Sivan has publicly responded to each other or commented further on the situation.
