Azealia Banks has aimed racial slurs towards former One Direction member Zayn Malik in a rant following her accusations that he plagiarised her in his new music video.

The disagreement began when Banks took objection to Malik's new 'Like I Would' video, which was released on Tuesday (May 10). She posted a picture to Instagram, pointing out the alleged similarities to her previous videos and style choices. "Damn Zayn be mood boarding the fuck of out me," she wrote, adding: "I'm not mad about this though. Zayn is a cutie pie".

Malik later seemed to address Banks' criticism in a pair of tweets, writing: "No lies... I see you reaching but I don't care". He then added: "My @'s too good for you".
