Nicki Minaj came under fire on Monday night after the female emcee posted a video on Instagram of a woman whom many are calling mentally ill.
In the heartbreaking visual, posted for the 32-year-old’s 69.7 million followers, an elderly white woman can be seen having an argument with Minaj over an unknown reason.
The woman, who was standing in front of a shoe store at the time, at one point yelled to the rapper, “Go away,” but Minaj continued to laugh and taunt the lady. The video, which also included a random man telling Nicki he’s a big fan, was captioned with a simple cry face emoji.
The comments on the rapper’s post were relatively unanimous, most fans blasting the “Anaconda” artist for entertaining a conversation with the unstable woman — let alone, posting it on social media.
“She didn’t have to post this video. She didn’t even have to have the camera out. You can tell something wrong with this lady,” one commenter wrote.
Someone else posted, “Anyone recognize that lady? Contact her family & lawyer up. Celebs are not above the law. Was recorded without womans consent & humiliated on social media.”
A few fans, however, did back Nicki up. Some suggested that there was not enough content in the video to justify berating the rapper and that, quite possibly, the woman was drunk and not mentally ill, as many suggested.
The video, meanwhile, picked up extra steam after Wendy Williams commented on it and suggested that the Trinidadian native was being an “insensitive Bitch.”
