Indians & Pakistanis joined hands to shut down Azealia Banks' racist jibe at Zayn Malik

Ladies and gents, you've been kept in the dark for so long. Did you know that in a parallel universe (one that Azealia Banks lives in, to be specific) 'Punjab' and 'curry' are swear words?

Azealia Banks, the singer who suffers from a severe potty-mouth and has engaged in more Twitter spats in the last few months than any other marginally-famous singer, is back.

This time the centre of her homophobic, racist rant is ex-One Direction singer Zayn Malik who according to the vitriolic singer has copied her music video in his latest track.

The neon-popping visuals of Malik's latest track caught Banks' interest, who took to Instagram and shared a collage of the 'similarities' between the video for her song Yung Rapunxel, and Zayn's Like I Would.

Zayn responded via two cryptic tweets, which may or may not have been for her because life and the Queen's language are too complicated to understand at times.

But Banks took the comments to heart and the verbal diarrhea that followed is one the world could have done without.

'Punjab' isn't an offensive word, it is an Indian state; and a rather gorgeous one at that. Neither is 'curry', which FYI is so, so delish. So if you thought you were insulting Malik, you might want to study South Asian culture for a bit.

Thankfully, the internet can be a happy place at times and post Banks' comments about Zayn, Indian and Pakistanis alike took up the hashtag #CurryScentedBitch and gave it a beautiful twist.

So if you log onto Twitter today you're likely to find a large drop-dead beautiful women dressed in traditional clothes declaring that they are 'curry smelling' and proud.
