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.”

Julie continued, “With that, we’ve gotten to both keep Elena’s character alive, but also return to the nostalgia of Season 1 when ‘Dear diary’ was a thing.”
She added that the final season is a “year of finallys…because it’s the last season, we get to deliver on all the things we’ve been keeping a nice Santa’s wish list of.”

And it’s not just about these groups and the politics and the culture of America at the time, but it’s really specifically about what it was to be a woman in those groups—how marginalizing that was and the ways in which they would try to exert power or authority and how they were suppressed within their radical, marginalized groups,” Valorie shared with Vogue recently about the importance of the film.
Check out the vid below on why Dakota wanted to be in the film herself.
