Is it a red flag? Kind of.
Since you refer to some parents being strict, I’m going to assume you’re not adults here.
Your friend is experiencing a lot of jealousy and wants to be included in things, which is fairly normal. She has an unacceptable amount of it though and seems to be lashing out any time she feels excluded. I’m sympathetic to her, but what she’s doing isn’t acceptable. You’re not obligated to soothe her feelings of jealousy.
You don’t seem to be very close friends with her, and it doesn’t seem like you’ll miss her much if you weren’t friends with her, so you can just let the friendship fade naturally. It’s a consequence of how she acts. I don’t think you should say “hey we aren’t friends anymore” and it might be worth it to let her figure out how to act.
At the end of the day though, in my mind when someone tells you to “fuck off”, it’s ok to listen.
