Azealia Banks went on a racist and homophobic attack against Zayn Malik on Tuesday, after accusing him of copying her music video.

On Monday, Malik released his futuristic music video for “Like I Would.” Banks then claimed the design too closely resembled that of her “Yung Rapunzel” clip. The British star didn’t directly respond, but tweeted on Tuesday afternoon, “No lies … I see you reaching but I don’t care,” and “My @’s too good for you.”

And that set Banks OFF on one of her infamous tirades. “@zaynmalik dude, I make better music than you. Simmer down with that fake white boy rebellion and that wannabe beiber swag,” the rapper tweeted. “lol u a bitch n*gga for even responding like that. Keep sucking this yung rapunxel d*ck u hairy curry scented bitch. imma start calling you punjab you dirty bitch.”

Banks continued to disparagingly reference Malik’s Muslim background, writing, “You a dick rider for real for real. Ride this dick until the wheels fall off Punjab.” And she also made allusions to One Direction. “lol u were the only paki in the group and you knew you were there for a reason,” she wrote.

“You were the the token brown boy. All those white boys in 1D disrespected you and made you their PET,” Banks continued. “You were only apart of 1d to draw brown attention. You are and ALWAYS will be a TOKEN to the UK.”

She then sunk even lower, writing in back-to-back tweets, “@zaynmalik still doesn’t change the fact that your mother is a dirty refugee who won’t be granted asylum. LOL @ZAYNMALIK IS A F*GGOT.” Bizarrely, Banks went on to accuse Malik of giving fans her phone number, and then called him a “cutie.”

Banks has become well-known for her feuds, recently using Twitter to rip Sarah Palin, as well as stars ranging from Nicki Minaj to Beyonce. Malik has not responded to the most recent offensive messages.

UPDATE: Malik ultimately responded, “@AZEALIABANKS why you been saying nasty things about me? I wasn’t talking about you lol?” That led Banks to go off again with similar remarks as above. “When your entire extended family has been obliterated by good ol the U.S of A will you still be trying to act like a white boy pretending to be black?” she replied. And yes, there’s more.
