Lemma 101.50.3. Let $\mathcal{X}$ be an algebraic stack which is reduced and quasi-separated and whose associated topological space $|\mathcal{X}|$ is irreducible. Then $\mathcal{X}$ is integral.

Proof. If $\mathcal{X}$ is quasi-separated, then $\mathcal{X}$ is decent by Lemma 101.48.2. If $\mathcal{X}$ is quasi-separated, then $\Delta : \mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{X} \times \mathcal{X}$ is quasi-compact, hence $\mathcal{I}_\mathcal {X} \to \mathcal{X}$ is quasi-compact as the base change of $\Delta $ by $\Delta $, see Lemma 101.7.3. Thus we see that all the hypotheses of Definition 101.50.1 hold (and we also see that we may replace “quasi-separated” by “$\Delta _\mathcal {X}$ is quasi-compact”). $\square$
