After US rapper Azealia Banks claimed she was the "first black Queen of Ireland" and said "Irish women are ugly," we're taking her anti-Irish tirade in good cheer.
New York rapper Azealia Banks may have lost herself a few Irish fans this week and the respect of a large number of Irish people all over the world who didn't even know who she was two days ago.
Not only did the controversial star massively insult Irish women but she quite crossed a line by dubbing herself the "First Black Queen of Ireland" and disrespecting our current Rose of Tralee Kirsten Maher.
And this was all before she even had a chance to ask us why we didn't have a famine to go die in!
It's been a busy few days of "inbred Leprechaun" bashing for Azealia but thankfully, we're made of tough stuff and Irish Twitter, as usual, has done us proud.
I don’t give a shit about what Azealia Banks said about Irish women being ugly like ok ur misogynism isn’t new to us

We can't see this affecting the reaction of any crowd across Ireland whenever "212" is played and to be honest, we still hadn't forgiven her for pulling out of Electric Picnic 2012 (twice) anyway.
