The Dublin crowd chanted ‘f**ck Aer Lingus’ at Azealia Banks as she hit The Academy stage just 24 hours after her foul-mouthed rant at Irish women.
The 212 rapper has been in hot water with the Irish people after branding women ‘ugly’ following an incident on an Aer Lingus flight to Dublin Airport on Monday.
The 27-year-old had claimed she was ‘banned’ from the airline (although Aer Lingus say they did no such thing) but later claimed to be ‘all clear’ to fly again.
Banks was already on the ferry when she ‘received clearance’ where she went on to call herself ‘Queen of Ireland’.
She ranted: “I’ve been asleep, and I woke up to some excellent news. It’s out, I’m the Queen of Ireland! I never knew I was the Queen of Ireland!
“Aren’t you happy to have such a Queen like me? Oh my God, the first black queen of Ireland! I really just woke up in the Irish Spring and the girls can’t take it.
“I got the pot of gold, bitch. I’ve got the pot of gold, and I’m not even from here! Now wait, until I do this sold out f***ing show. Y’all b***hes are gonna see who the f***ing Queen of Ireland is.”
“The girls have scurvy, they’re like vitamin deficient, they need some calcium tablets and some Camaraderie soap. Anyways, I’m back on the Chardonel (wine).”
After doubling-down on her comments, Banks then randomly brought Rose of Tralee Kirsten Mate Maher into it calling her ‘ugly’ and ‘chopped’
Her comments didn’t phase Waterford beauty Kirsten Mate Maher, who said she was “creased” by the entire situation.
Commenting on a photo of Kirsten, Azealia wrote: “Nah you’re chopped sis”, with the hashtag #uglyirishgirl and a laughing emoji.
The whole saga left a bad taste in the local’s mouths leaving a lot of muddy water on The Academy gig.
Many were unsure whether she’d be given the famous Irish welcome, or she’d be pelted with potatoes as many had threatened to do.
But despite the controversy, the crowd took the whole thing lightly chanting ‘f*** Aer Lingus’ at her with some even holding up placards with the slogan.
