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.

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.
