Azealia Banks is without a Twitter account after a racist rant against singer Zayn Malik. But she’s not without an Instagram account, which is what she used on Sunday to issue an apology.

Banks offered her “sincerest apologies to the world” in a posting on Instagram.

“Employing racial/sexual slurs/stereotypes in attempts to make fun of or degrade another person or group is not fair or fun for anyone,” wrote Banks, who performed in Istanbul on Sunday.


Coming to Banks’ defense over the weekend was legendary actress Bette Midler.

Midler didn’t understand why Banks’ Twitter was deleted, when people like Donald Trump spout racist rhetoric all the time on the social media platform.

But I guess this tweet sums it up:

At time of publication, Banks remains banned from Twitter.
