Azealia Banks sparked some more controversy when she made offensive comments about the Irish and Irish women after an encounter on an airplane. She went on to describe Irish people as "a bunch of prideful inbred leprechauns who have ZERO global influence."

Since her social media rant, an Irish lawyer responded to her words with a statement in which I asserted that Banks' words are punishable by law apparently, explaining that anything deemed to be hate speech on social media is a crime.

"Hi # alexandrabanks [sic] in light of your recent comments on #instagram about Irish women and Irish people in general, maybe I can introduce you to the #CommunicationsAct2003 (s127) before you land in England, "said Tomas McGarvey.

According to McGarvey, Section 127 of the UK's Communications Act of 2003 says that it's an offense to "send a message that is grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character over public electronic communications network."

Banks took Instagram to address Mcgarvey's new revelation and accused the threat of being spurred by racism, adding that if his actions are punishable by law, then they are the answers that he has gotten.

"Racism at its finest," she penned. "The eagerness to put a black woman in a cage. EL OH EL. If I'm gettin arrested then we will have to go through my DM's and arrest every person who said racist things to me, which would mean that you would I'm not sure what kind of point these folk are trying to prove but the racism keeps jumping out of them like vomiting on a stomach virus. Literally, you can not believe the kind of black-hunting these folk are on about. […]The fact that these people think this should scare me into submission to let people say racist things to me as long as I do not say them back is hilarious. Arrest me and THEN do what?[…] 212 will shoot straight to the top of the charts and I will become part of the UK School's curriculum, Feminist Theory, he will literally make me a HUGE star for arresting me. A blessing in disguise. "
