Azealia Banks took a shot at Australian concert-goers when she tweeted that Aussie crowds are “violent” and “terrible.” The star had just finished a set at Byron Bay’s Splendour in the Grass festival, when she was congratulated on her performance on Twitter. She replied:

Brown’s message seemed to reference her 2013 sets at the Listen Out festivals in Sydney and Melbourne, when she walked off stage after audience members began throwing cans at her.

This isn’t her first Australia-related slam either, though. Earlier this year Banks called it “a notoriously racist country” and accused the nation of “cultural fetishism.”
