Azealia Banks who’s known for her loud combative social media rants have been officially silenced by One Direction Fans who were outraged at her alleged homophobic comments towards Zayn Malik. Apparently she had been warned before about using social media as a bullying tactic and now her mouth has been sealed shut!
Should one not be able to voice their opinion without being silenced, has her free speech been violated or did she deserve to have her account suspended?

One Direction fans who petitioned for Twitter to suspend Azealia Banks account after her racist and homophobic rant against Zayn Malik got their wish.
Anyone trying to access the rapper’s account early Thursday was greeted with a page which read, “This account has been suspended. Learn more about why Twitter suspends accounts, or return to your timeline.”
That was then followed by an epic Twitter (Tech30) beef battle with 14-year-old Disney actress and One Direction fan Skai Jackson, which created a ton of buzz. Banks went after the young star in a series of insulting tweets after Jackson tweeted, “Azealia Banks needs to simmer down a little.”,

On Wednesday, London’s Rinse FM’s Born & Bred Festival canceled Azealia Banks’ upcoming headline appearance.
On Thursday afternoon her fans were applauding what they believe to be her return to Twitter. An unverified account was launched under her name with one of the first tweets saying “I’ve realised I should probably just stick to music the world can’t handle the truth.”
