Somebody Come Get Her: Nicki Minaj Insults Fan Who Suggested Her Music Evolve And Mature
With Nicki Minaj’s track record with women, the following story shouldn’t really surprise you. But I think since her break and subsequent return to music and social media, the Queens rapper has been a bit more sensitive, a bit more desperate than usual.
Whether it was her thoughts on Cardi B. or her response to the warranted criticism about her hypocritical condemnation of strippers and sex workers, Nicki has been making some strange moves as of late.
And she’s showing no signs of slowing down.
Recently, music and culture writer Wanna Thompson expressed an opinion several people have stated over the past few months, essentially arguing that at this point in her career, it would be nice for Nicki to rap about something real.
Given everything that’s been said about Minaj, I thought the opinion was just that. It wasn’t a personal attack, an insult of her skills and talent, it was a culture writer suggesting that Nicki do something different…for the culture.
But apparently, Nicki didn’t take it that way because she hopped in the woman’s DMs to insult her.
In case you weren’t counting, Nicki called this woman ugly, told her to “eat a d*ck,” said she was a hater, criticized her for having a Trinidadian flag on her page, accused her of being jealous because Nicki is rich and the writer isn’t, and then called her a ho.
Classy…and certainly the most of all for an opinion not a character assassination.
Thompson released the DMs online, causing a series of events to take place. In the midst of support and disappointment from so many, Nicki Minaj fans descended into Thompson’s mentions with hateful comments and death threats.
Eventually, as a writer for KarenCivil.com, Thompson was fired. Civil has a business relationship with Nicki Minaj and so many assumed the affiliation was the reason she was let go. Another employee at the website claimed that Thompson was an unpaid intern who not only failed to submit stories in a timely manner, but she was fired because in later tweets, she disclosed aspects of a private conversation with her “employer,” violating the nondisclosure agreement portion of her contract.
Either way, it cost Thompson an opportunity. But something tells me that this whole ordeal will ultimately work out in her favor, based on the response from folks on social media who also believe Nicki Minaj took things a little too far.
All I know is for a woman who claims that she’s being attacked at every turn, who presents herself as an advocate for women, she does entirely too much to disparage any woman who doesn’t agree with everything she says and does.
