She has been badly attacked for her opening number at the ceremony and because of the criticism, Ariana seems to have decided to deactivate her account.

Hosted by Richard E. Grant, the 76th edition of British Academy Film Awards took place at London on Sunday, February 19. The 32-year-old actress kickstarted the program with an iconic medley - "We Are Family," and "Sisters Are Doing It for Themselves", along with a rap song where she gave a shout out to the female contestants.

Fans took a little jibe at DeBose after she sang a rap for the female nominees in the BAFTAs, which landed her in quitting Twitter. DeBose, who has done several rap performances in the past, has sparked fire for her cryptic lyrics. She sang - “Angela Bassett did the thing, Viola Davis my ‘Woman King', Blanchett Cate you’re a genius, Jamie Lee you are all of us”. The line was so discussed on Twitter that it started trending.
