Nicki Minaj is under fire for uploading a video to her Instagram account on Monday where she is seen laughing at a mentally ill woman. Critics are saying that Nicki knew exactly what she was doing when mocking and laughing at the woman who can be seen angrily saying something in reply to Nicki and walking away.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) issued a statement after the video was released saying Minaj was negatively influencing her millions of followers, and I couldn’t agree more!
“Nobody would make fun of a cancer patient, and mental illness is an illness like any other,” a rep for the organization told TMZ.
Nicki has yet to respond, apologize or take the down the video. SMH….
I am NOT a fan of this….AT ALL! Nicki is too smart (or perhaps she’s isn’t) and too big of a star for this behavior. And by now, I’m sure she’s fully aware of the backlash that she’s currently receiving. Not taking the video down is a blatant “MIDDLE FINGER” to her critics. UGH……
PS – I bet if she was still with Safaree Samuels, this wouldn’t happen (the company you keep is very telling). YEP…that was shade.
