Azealia Banks could be in massive trouble for her 'famine' and 'inbred leprechauns' remarks.

Her posts have since been deleted but not before we managed to get a screenshot the horrible comments.

Barrister Tomas McGarvey tweeted that Banks could be "prosecuted" under the 2003 Communications Act.

In a tweet, he said:

“Hi #azeliabanks in light of your recent comments on #instagram about Irish women & Irish people generally, perhaps I can introduce you to the #CommunicationsAct2003 (s127) before you land in England. If you keep up the insults, you may end up with first-hand experience."

He screenshotted section 127 of the Communications Act 2003.

Under the act, "a person is guilty of an offence if he or she sends by means of a public electronic communications network a message or other matter that is grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing nature."
