This leaves Us speechless. Azealia Banks launched into a foulmouthed tirade of racist tweets, using homophobic language to blast former One Direction star Zayn Malik for allegedly stealing her musical ideas.

The rapper used a slew of outrageous put-downs directed at Malik and then also at his fans, and at British black women in general.

The outpouring began when Banks, 24, took a swipe at Malik, 23, accusing him of copying her work.

"Damn Zayn be mood boarding the f–k out of me," she wrote via Instagram, sharing stills from his latest video for "Like I Would," and other images of her work that she claimed were very similar. "I'm not mad about this though," she added. "Zayn is a cutie pie."

Initially silent, Malik eventually responded. "@AZEALIABANKS why you been saying nasty things about me? I wasn't talking about you lol," he tweeted.

Banks then unleashed a barrage of abuse at Malik.

"U.S.A IS ABOUT TO TEACH YOU WHO NOT TO F–K WITH!!" she blasted. "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? Do you understand that you are a sand n—– who emulates white boys' renditions of black male hood? Do you know how lost and culture less you are?" she went on.

"No lies … I see you reaching but I don't care," Malik tweeted, followed by another response. "My @'s too good for you."

His reaction sent Banks totally wild and she embarked on an even more shocking stream of abuse.

"Dude, I make better music than you. Simmer down with that fake white boy rebellion and that wannabe beiber swag," she replied. "Lol u a bitch n–ga for even responding like that. Keep sucking this yung rapunxel d–k u hairy curry scented bitch."

And that wasn't all.

"Imma start calling you punjab you dirty bitch," she went on. "You a d–k rider for real for real. Ride this d–k until the wheels fall off Punjab."

Malik opted out of the conversation at this point, but as fans and social media users flocked to Twitter to slam Banks for her comments, she continued with her shocking responses.

"LOL, black girls in the UK make themselves look bad w/o my help," she wrote. "Those teeth? and terrible weaves?!?!? HAHHAHA."

As many Twitter users called for Banks' account to be stopped, singer Lily Allen got involved, taking exception to another of Banks' tweets in which she claimed she would "bear arms" when she traveled to the U.K.

"Girl, I have armed security! I'm an American girl! I exercise my 2nd amendment rights EVERYWHERE I go!!" Banks had written. "Ha! We'll see !!!! #AMERICANA #PUBLICFIGURE #ARMEDSECURITY"

"Why do the Police shut down @GIggs or @nines1ace raves but @AZEALIABANKS is cool to just come here threatening to bring arms ?don't get it," she wrote.
