Rapper apologises to Zayn Malik for racial attack

Azealia Banks has put her pride and shame aside to apologize with hope that it is not too late for her career to be saved.

Azealia Banks and Zayn Malik

The rapper who suffered a heavy slap on Twitter for her racist rant about Zayn Malik, 23, has expressed her “sincerest apologies” in a statement via her Instagram account.

Banks diss for  Zayn Mlike almost messed up her career after she accused him of stealing some of her concepts for his latest video ‘Like I Would’

She upset a lot of people with her words and trolling nature, which eventually led to the suspension of her Twitter account over her racial comments. The artiste was also dropped off from the performers' line up for the Rinse Born and Bred festival in the United Kingdom.

Although the rapper had earlier awkwardly apologise in the past, it was obviously not accepted by fans and those affected by her trolling social media attitude.

“I’ve had some time to decompress & take a more rational assessment of things. I want to extend my sincerest apologies to the world, Employing racial/sexual slurs/stereotypes in attempts to make fun of or degrade another person or group is absolutely unacceptable and is not fair or fun for anyone,”  she wrote

“Allowing my anger to get the best of me, I’ve managed to insult millions of people without reason. And for that I give my deepest apologies.” she continued.
