Azealia Banks Starts Twitter Beef with Diplo, Releases 'Harlem Shake' Video

A Twitter argument featuring a Perez Hilton cameo.

Last week Azealia Banks released a remix of 'Harlem Shake'. She has since shared the video which is basically a play-by-play reenactment of what I imagine myself to look like when dancing in the club.

While we enjoy Azealia's version of Baauer's track, according to her he was not as keen, and went so far as to take it off SoundCloud. 

She then confronted him about this:

She responded with this sufficient burn:

Perez Hilton intervened for reasons unknown:

They then got into a big argument of Tyler and Miley proportions over what her pussy tastes like. This resulted in her calling him a 'faggot'. She shared her definition of this word for clarification:

Azealia additionally described the gossip blogger as an "energy stealer, blood sucker," said he should be sacrified, as well as succintly explaining her stance on homophobia:

Diplo, who signed Baauer to his Mad Decent label, is also not a fan of Azealia's 'Harlem Shake' remix. Earlier this morning, Azealia took to Twitter to publicly call him out (even though he produced her 'Fuck Up The Fun' track), tweeting a few hours ago:

She has since deleted these tweets, but left a trail of slightly more indirect ones:

Adding:

Jumping back to the whole 'faggot debacle of 2013', her most recent tweets read:

Now all we need is Iggy Azeala to jump in and offer her two cents on the status of females in rap for the internet to explode. 

EVERYONE CHILL.
