Azealia Banks shocked her social media followers after posting videos of herself apparently boiling her dead cat.

The eccentric rap star has since deleted the footage she posted on Instagram after revealing her pet, named Lucifer, had died and she dug up the carcass and boiled it.

"Lucifer 2009-2020. My Dear kitty," Banks captioned one of the videos. "Thank you for everything. A legend. An icon. Forever a serval serve [sic]."

The cat apparently died three months ago.

One follower wrote: "omg i cant believe that Azealia just cook her cat from the dead and it was buried," while another added: "WARNING - if you are triggered by images of cruelty to animals scroll past anything to do with Azealia Banks today".

Banks previously fell out with animal lovers in late 2016 after posting and deleting footage of herself using a sand blaster to clean a closet floor of dried blood and chicken gizzards from animal sacrifices for witchcraft rituals.

She wrote, "Real witches do real things. In case you didn't know, brujeria is the Spanish word for witchcraft."

Fans were outraged by the suggestion Banks sacrifices chickens in her home, and singer Sia was among those who were quick to react, tweeting: "Sacrificing animals for your gain is the wackest s**t I've ever heard. Get ahead by being awesome, kind and working hard."
