    Azealia Banks Called Zayn A "Curry Scented Bitch" And Twitter's Desi Women SHUT. IT. DOWN

    Never mess with a desi.

    Rapper Azealia Banks recently accused Zayn Malik of copying her "Yung Rapunxel" music video in his new release "Like I Would".

    Malik responded with a couple of tweets seemingly aimed at Banks...

    Which is when things escalated, as Banks hit back with a rant that contained a lot of racist and homophobic undertones.

    Indian-origin comedian Jasmeet "JusReign" Singh blew up the thread after taking it upon himself to roast Banks for every slur she tweeted.

    But it was when Banks used the term "curry scented bitch" that desis on Twitter decided that they needed to shut things down.

    Women started posting pictures of themselves under the hashtag #CurryScentedBitch to counter Banks's use of the term.

    Wait @azealiabanks who you calling a #curryscentedbitch again?

    Why wouldn't you want to be a #CURRYSCENTEDBITCH

    The hashtag blew up and started trending around the world.

    Hundreds of desi women uploaded photos of themselves aimed at Banks.

    Meanwhile, Banks took to Periscope to continue her rant against Malik and South Asians.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
