Twitter Suspends Azealia Banks’ Account

In recent months, Twitter has come under fire for refusing to act against people who use the site to, say, threaten to rape or murder fellow Twitter users. But now Twitter has, at least for now, suspended the account of one of its most notorious users. In the past few weeks, Azealia Banks went on an extended racist Twitter rant about the British pop star and former One Direction member Zayn Malik; soon afterward, London’s Born & Bred festival dropped her from its lineup. And now, as XXL points out, Twitter has suspended her account. Look for Banks’ Instagram to get really, really grisly in the days ahead.
