Azealia Banks makes headlines often for her Twitter beefs and rants, but it appears her time on Twitter may be over…for now.

Hours ago Twitter suspended her account.

Apparently Azealia’s racially charged tweets to 14-year-old Disney actress Skai Jacksonand Pop singer Zayn Malik were the last straw for Twitter.

TIME writes:

The incident started when she called out former One Direction member Malik in an Instagram post, insinuating he drew heavily from her music video for one of his own. She then tweeted at Zayn during an exchange, calling him a “curry scented b—-” (Malik is of Pakistani descent), and directed a stream of inappropriate tweets at Jackson, who got involved by telling her to “simmer down.”

Attempting to visit Banks’ Twitter profile on Thursday morning brought users to this page, which says the account has been suspended. A Twitter spokesperson declined to comment to TIME about the individual account, citing privacy reasons. In addition to spam or account security at risk, Twitterexplains here how it will suspend a user for “Abusive Tweets or behavior.”
