14-year-old Disney star Skai Jackson shuts down Azealia Banks
Another day, another Azealia Banks beef. This time 14-year-old Disney star Skai Jackson shut down Banks in a series of Tweets that left people giving her a virtual standing ovation.
The original problem seemed to stem from Banks’ dislike of former One Direction star Zayn Malik, as Banks cheekily claimed Malik plagiarized her style. Malik didn’t respond, but Banks went on a racist rant against him anyways calling him a ‘sand n**ger’ and ‘refugee.’
When Skai Jackson watched the drama unfold, she responded:
“Azealia Banks needs to simmer down a little.”
Banks shot back with, “Never heard of you before. Never even seen you on TV…. You aren’t a star. You aren’t a topic. You’re a Meme.”
“I had a career before Disney and I’m sure I will after! And I know I won’t turn out like you bitter and miserable! Fix ur life,” Jackson replied.
“LOL is ur mom tweeting for you? Does ur mom believe in the white man’s jesus too. Awwwww. #thatscute,” Banks said.
Jackson shot back, “Now that was corny ! Go fix your edges before you come at me! #byenow Hide behind your weaves much?”
The Twitter war bounced back and forth, but as it continued, Twitter became more and more impressed with how Jackson had not only stepped up to the fight but was also holding her own and getting in some serious shots.

Jackson’s mother eventually chimed in to explain that not only was she *not* tweeting for her daughter, she would jump in to address Banks if needed.
“This industry is too small for her to be saying something she might regret later. She’s too old to go at it with a 14 year old, but not too young for me to see her!”
At this point Azealia Banks has had social media beefs with Iggy Izalea, TI, Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj just to name a few. Now she can add a 14-year-old to the list. We wonder if she’s proud.
