Hours after Azealia Banks and Zayn Malik started fighting over his "Like I Would" music video, Skai Jackson also got involved. After the Disney Channel star made a fairly innocuous comment on Twitter, the rapper verbally attacked her on Twitter — and things got heated. The BUNK'D actress was forced to defend herself against some major public bullying, and she did a great job, but it's a pretty confusing fight. We're breaking down the entire beef for you.
Click the arrow to see the dramatic exchange on Twitter.
It all started when Skai joked that Azealia should "simmer down a little," following her drama with Zayn. (The Disney Channel star is a longtime One Direction fan, so she was presumably responding to their beef.) This comment did not sit well with the rapper, and she fired off on the 14-year-old Disney Channel star.
Azealia tweeted that Skai should "grow some hips," get her period, and "stay in a child's place." For multiple reasons, it was totally uncalled for. Besides the fact that the comment about growing curves is seriously body-shaming, Azealia is implying that the BUNK'D actress can't speak her mind because she's a teenager. (This is wrong on so many levels. We all know that teenagers are smart AF, so Skai's age shouldn't invalidate her thoughts and opinions.)
The actress reminded Azealia that she had a career way before Disney, and is confident that she'll still have one afterward. Remember her adorable baby modeling pics? Skai also pointed out that the rapper might be bullying her because she's miserable in her own life.
Then, Azealia insulted Skai by saying that she had never heard of her before. She even called her just a "meme." Um, has she not heard of Jessie or BUNK'D? To be fair, Azealia is 24 years old and the current Disney Channel lineup may not be on her radar, but that doesn't excuse her hurtful comments.
