Azealia Banks has called Australian crowds ''violent'' and ''terrible''.
The '212' hitmaker - who performed at Byron Bay's Splendour in the Grass festival on Saturday (25.07.15) - responded to a tweet by radio presenter Paul 'Browny' Brown who joked about the star completing her ''first ever full Australian concert.''
However, Azealia was not impressed and decided to slam the country for being ''terrible crowds to play for'' because they are ''violent and belligerent''.
Paul Brown tweeted Azealia: ''Hey everyone let's say Congratulations to @AZEALIABANKS for completing her First Ever Full Australian Concert at @SITG.
Spewin I missed it (sic).''
Azealia then made reference to another experience, when she performed in Syndey and Melbourne at the Listen Out festivals back in 2013, where she stormed off stage after the audience threw cans at her, she added that she ''will not put my safety at risk'' and ''I would've walked off stage had someone thrown something''.
The 24-year-old singer replied: ''because in all actuality. You guys are terrible crowds to play for. You're violent and belligerent and I simply ... @brownypaul @SITG will not put my safety at risk. I would've walked off stage had someone thrown something (sic).''
Azealia played Splendour in the Grass festival on the same day as Florence and The Machine, Years & Years and The Wombats.
