According to her, she has decided to stop sharing her thoughts online because she doesn't want her "legacy to die on the Internet".

She wrote, "I'm seriously tired of peoples feelings. I'm tired of seeing their overly sensitive reactions and responses to everything.

I'm tired of having everything I say or do be monitored and I'm tired of being told how I should be behaving.

I'm quitting Facebook, and any other form of social media that allows me to engage with people. My legacy can't live and die on the Internet. Goodbye. For good."

Banks also recently accused both Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga of plagiarism.

In one Facebook post, Banks wrote, "FUN FACT: "SLAY-Z" is a nickname given to her by one of her fans in 2014. A play on the Z in Banks' name, and her propensity to release consistently awesome music, the nickname was lifted from her twitter account and featured as one of the characters in Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood' video. "

Azealia Banks however reclaimed the nickname upon the arrival of of her self-released 2016 mixtape titled 'SLAY-Z'."

In another, she said, "FUN FACT: Azealia Banks created her own genre of music called 'Witch-Hop.' Coined by the success of 2012's Fantasea Mixtape, Azealia considers her music to be inspired by the invisible world. 3 days after 'Witch-Hop' was declared by Azealia Banks to be a legitimate genre, Lady Gaga (also a fan of Azealia Banks) suspiciously titled her then upcoming studio album, Artpop."
