A social media feud between Rihanna and Azealia Banks led to what appears to be their phone numbers being posted online for all to see.
Banks, a rapper who is no stranger to engaging in celebrity beefs (Zayn Malik, Russell Crowe and Sia have previously felt her wrath), was the first to drop Rihanna‘s number after the two began debating about President Donald Trump’s executive order to temporarily suspend immigration from seven Muslim majority nations.
Rihanna retaliated with a screenshot of a text message Banks allegedly sent, accusing the “Umbrella” singer of having a “drug and sex addiction.”
According to the Herald Sun, both numbers have been disconnected. Here’s the tweet that started it all.
Disgusted! The news is devastating! America is being ruined right before our eyes! What an immoral pig you have to be to implement such BS!!

Banks’ immediate response (which has since been deleted from her Instagram) was as follows: “As far as rihanna (who isn’t a citizen, and can’t vote) and all the rest of the celebrities who are using their influence to stir the public, you lot really REALLY need to shut up and sit down (sic). Stop chastising the president. It’s stupid and pathetic to watch. All of these confused people confuse other confused people. Hoping the president fails is like getting on an airplane and hoping the pilot crashes. What makes you think, the the USA is going to enter the Middle East destroy a bunch of shit and pull out without any real repercussions ????”
Here are a few posts on Rihanna‘s Instagram account that people are interpretting as a response to Banks.
