Banks called Sivan a "late condescending expired Twink."

Troye Sivan thought he was praising Azealia Banks when he said her classic track “212” was his go-to pregame song, but apparently, that’s not how Banks took it.

In a recent post on Spotify's official TikTok account, Troye was asked what his “go-to pregame banger” is, and responded by saying that it’s Banks’ classic song “212.”


To celebrate his latest album Something To Give Each Other, we played a game of In The Spotlight with @Troye Sivan ✨

While it seemed clear that Sivan was complimenting the song and artist, Banks didn’t take too kindly to the shout-out.

“This is these white kids’ weird way of apologizing for bandwagoning,” she wrote in a post on her Instagram Story. “Having no clue of the kind of shit happening to me behind the scenes in the industry.”

“I’m not impressed by any of these people (who I’ve never met in person nor had a conversation with me) not having the audacity to be as public and loud with their apology as they were with using their platform to cast judgment as if a singular me was an important social justice issue,” she wrote. “I would REALLY appreciate all of these f*ckin civilian ass bitches to stop mentioning me, stop dancing to my shit in the club if you’re not going to treat me like a human and take back all the unfounded bullshit you all used ur platforms to perpetuate.”

Then, Banks went for the jugular, and started to really lash out at Sivan, even calling him a pedophile.

“And your a late condescending expired Twink anyway bitch. We’ve been past 212,” she wrote in a follow-up post. “Trying ur hardest to old on to the f*cking weak ass pedophilia x incest aesthetic - perpetuating that underlying double standard that somehow pedophilia practicedamongst men is somehow okay… that fueled ur trash ass music in the first place.”

“Give it up, puberty hit that ass and made u a doofy looking young man,” she closed out, adding that she bets he’ll “pull the grift” and come out as trans next.

Hopefully, the attack won’t dissuade Sivan from listening to the song, as it is definitely a bop.
