Azealia Banks and Action Bronson are embroiled in a Twitter battle, with some of what's been said ranking in the raunchy range. It seems she is upset with him--to put it lightly--over his comment about not wanting his name mentioned in the same sentence with hers.

It appears as though Action Bronson started the feud, but it didn't take long for Azealia Banks to post her retort.

As if there isn't enough foolish fighting in the world. Now there are rappers fighting a word of words on Twitter.

Billboard reports that this is how it all went down. Their posts have since been removed from Twitter.

“DONT EVER IN LIFES HISTORY MENTION MY NAME IN A SLANDEROUS MANNNER,” Bronson tweeted on Friday afternoon, tagging Banks, Azalea and the fan that compared them with him. Banks hopped in and replied, “Nobody dissed you!! but you do sound like the bootleg ghost face and i will definitely flame you on a track any given sunday.” (Bronson’s flow has long been compared to that of Ghostface Killah, for those wondering where that diss comes from.)

DONT EVER IN LIFES HISTORY MENTION MY NAME IN A SLANDEROUS MANNNER. @bekushner @AZEALIABANKS @IGGYAZALEA

From there, the squabble turned hideous: Bronson tweeted “YOU SUCK” at Banks, called her a “HORSE MOUTH” and claimed that the Devil himself lives in Banks’ genitalia. “U AND IGGY ARE THE SAME ARTIST YALL SHOULD JOIN A GROUP HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA,” he added, before concluding, “WHITE BLACK SPANISH ASAIN WHATEVA I DONT GIVE A F--- JUST BE A GOOD PERSON. THATS IT.”

Meanwhile, Banks fired back with “You'll be dead of heart attack and diabetes in a year if you don't slow down fatty cakes,” and “I bet you save bits of food in your undertits,” among other barbs. She also compared Bronson to Kirstie Alley, which, come on, why does the Veronica’s Closet star need to be brought into this ugliness?

@ActionBronson boooooo ur just mad because ur a fat, white, sub-par... ghost-face killa.

@ActionBronson you're an okay rapper for a white person. Ghostface shits on you all day.

Azealia Banks gave a radio interview very recently, and in it she discussed the appropriation of black culture by white artists, and she even dissed white rappers like Macklemore and Iggy Azalea. The latter addressed the comments on Twitter soon after.

What do you think of this Twitter (now defunct) war on words? Do you think it has the potential to spread from the internet into the 'real' world, too?
