Azealia Banks Wants Zayn Malik to Know She's Sorry for Her Racist Insults - Read Her Letter

Azealia Banks has written an apology to Zayn Malik after the offensive remarks she made about the former One Direction singer during a Twitter feud back in May.

The 25-year-old rapper was suspended from the social media site for her racist comments earlier this year.

“Dear Zayn, There are no words that can fully express how sorry I am,” Azealia wrote in the open letter on Friday (October 21). “Recent events have taught me the importance of taking accountability for ones actions. I want and need to say I am sorry, I was wrong.”

Azealia is currently involved in a public feud with Russell Crowe involving accusations of assault and racist expletives at a party last weekend.

“As a black woman, in America, I sometimes forget that there are words and comments that hurt other communities,” she went on. “At times, I am so consumed by my own struggle, and the struggle of my race, that I forget to consider the hardships other minorities continue to endure. Coming from an ethnicity that is largely discriminated against does not warrant a license to use derogatory, abusive terminology nor does it give me the right to make hurtful remarks.”

“I apologise not only to you, Zayn, but to all those I hurt and offended,” she added. “I am not cruel, nor am I heartless or vindictive. There is a lot of love in my heart and there is good in my soul. What I did was wrong and I am committed to becoming a better person.”

“Throughout my transgressions you remained a gentleman and I applaud you for displaying class and maintaining a level head,” she finished. “The world could learn a lot from you and I hope you can find room in your heart to accept my sincerest apologies.”
