Azealia Banks' racist Twitter rant at Zayn Malik 01:18

(CNN)You would be forgiven if you have no idea who Azealia Banks is or what she does.

The rapper, who these days seems to drop more disses on Twitter than on wax, is well known to many in social media and on Wednesday her latest beef got her dropped from a British music festival.
Here's how it went down:
    On Tuesday she mentioned former One Direction member Zayn Malik in an Instragram post. Later, Malik tweeted "No lies ... I see you reaching but I don't care" and "My @'s too good for you."
    This being social media, naturally Banks thought he was talking about her and it was on from there. What followed were some tweets from her that were pretty inflammatory and included racial and gay slurs.
    Enter 14-year-old Disney star and One Direction fan Skai Jackson, who tweeted, "Azealia Banks needs to simmer down a little."
