Thought the Azealia Banks / RuPaul drama had reached peak output?

Not so.

Just to recap — Banks cried foul on RuPaul‘s song, “Call Me Mother,” off his album, American, claiming the beat was ripped off from her 2016 single, “The Big Big Beat.”

Here are the two tracks back-to-back:

The album was reportedly removed from Spotify while the matter was investigated, but was returned to the streaming service within a couple of days.

That prompted a series of tweets from Banks in which she said of Ru:

“I’m disappointed in him first and foremost as a black person. He was supposed to have my back … But he went with popular white gay sentiment and felt like I was disposable enough to steal from and discard. F*ck him.”

But apparently, she wasn’t quite finished. On Monday, Banks took to Twitter again:

Tagging the person you’d like to leave you alone is not always the best strategy to get that person to leave you alone, but that’s neither here nor there.

The latest comments tipped one performer over the edge — Drag Race season 10’s Monet X Change tweeted:

And because this is Twitter and everyone has more gasoline to add to the fire, Banks took Monet’s bait:

And why would things end there?

Meanwhile, RuPaul opted to take a more cryptic road.

We can’t say for sure if these recent tweets are directed towards Banks, but the hints seem clear:

It’s good advice for anyone who feels things intensely — separating emotions from the orbits they inhabit within us is no easy feat, and in the age of Twitter wars, it’s all too easy to dive headfirst into the flaming pools of raw impulse and reaction.

Then again, even Ru seemingly couldn’t resist reminding everyone that yes, her album — including “Call Me Mother” — is definitely available on **SPOTIFY**:
