"You lot are a bunch of prideful inbred leprechauns who have ZERO global influence and ZERO white privilege," Banks said to a critical Instagram follower. "The rest of the world's white folk don't want to associate with you lot at all and it's because you are barbarians."
The comments that initially got Banks some backlash for making comments about Irish people after she had a negative experience on her scheduled flight from London's Gatwick Airport to Dublin. After she got into an argument with an Aer Lingus air stewardess, Banks stormed off the aircraft with her entourage and claimed she was treated her like an animal.The Harlem rapper chose to travel to her gig in Dublin via road and ferry.
A day later, Banks hit the stage for a show at Dublin's The Academy where she dedicated the show to "all the beautiful Irish women that are here." Her second rant occurred hours after the sold-out show ended. Although she hasn't spoken on the outrage she reportedly ignited in Ireland, Banks did speak out about the incident on the flight that sparked her first wild rant.
