Last week Banks was axed by London’s Born & Bred festival following the racial and homophobic slurs.

Shortly after, the UK’s home office said it was looking into banning the artist from entering the country.

Now it seems she’s been dropped by her UK booking agency, Primary Talent. As pointed out by Fact, Banks’ name doesn’t appear on the company’s roster anymore and the direct link to her artist page yields an error message.

When calling Primary Talent’s office, Pollstar was referred to the company’s generic email address.

Even Twitter blocked the artist’s account, claiming her rants violated the social network’s terms. Banks has since apologized “to the world” via Instagram.
