Though Malik's tweets had no direct mentions to Banks, she took the hint and the things escalated when she went on a rant filled with racist remarks.

The term “curry scented bitch” is when the desi Twitter had it enough and decided to shut Banks up.
the fact that "curry scented" is an insult when curry 1000% smells and tastes absolutely delicious 🤔🤔🤔 https://t.co/WCxFF1orCc— Dirty Punjab (@JusReign) May 10, 2016
And in no time #CurryScentedBitch became a trend on Twitter:
