Continuing her rant, she wrote: 'I'm happiest knowing the Irish are quarantined on an isle so they can continue to inbreed and keep their defective genes away from humanity.

Next to a screenshot of Aer Lingus' statement confirming she had left the flight, Azealia wrote: 'People are so addicted to Azealia Banks trauma porn that they hop on ANY opportunity to try and make it seem like my life is all sad and horrible.
I got off the plane on my own. When I got off the plane they kept chastising me and saying they were gonna call the police for no reason and it made me cry.
