Nicki Minaj is facing heat after she tweeted that “white ppl” treat her better online than “the blacks.”
In a tweet that has been deleted, Minaj seemingly accused the black media of using her worst moments to perpetuate a negative image of her.
On November 5th, Minaj cryptically wrote, “What the white ppl post. >>>>>>,” adding “The blacks only post the few seconds where I raise my voice to push their narrative.”
Fans responded on Twitter and objected to both her opinion and the use of the term “the blacks” to refer to black people.
According to Complex, Nicki’s anger seemed to stem from her beef with Wendy Williams and the coverage she generates in gossip blogs on social media. In the deleted tweet, she also posted a clip of E! that showed her reaction to Williams’ comments on her recent marriage.
Williams spoke about Minaj’s new husband on her talk show, telling her audience, ”Now, he served seven years in prison, and he’s also a sex offender,” she said. “So that means that he — is a manslaughter a killer? Okay, so he’s a killer and a sex offender. Well, Nicki, congratulations.”
Minaj then took to her Queen Radio show to drag Wendy about her own relationship issues.
“So I really wanted to pray for you today, because look at where you are now in your life,” she said, directly addressing Williams. “Look at what age you are. You’re sat up there being vicious all this time, and paid for that man’s mistress all these years. You paid for her shopping sprees, you paid for her hotels, you probably even paid for her GYN bills, you paid to have that baby delivered, hoe.”
Nicki seemed to be bothered by the media’s continuing coverage of her ongoing controversy with Williams but has yet to address this most recent twitter backlash.

You know what..I love your music. But the fact that you said “white ppl” and then refer to us as “the blacks” just furthers the idea that “blacks” aren’t people. That’s an idea that goes wayyy back. I’m mad hurt. Unconscious ideas are a mf. You gotta be aware of what you saying.

Say that queen. She’s praising the white media that just spent half the year making up shit trying to kill the economy of a brown nation the #DominicanRepublic, but it’s “the blacks” that’s the problem 🤦🏾♂️.

Nicki Minaj deleted it but remember that today she referred to the same community that she is not only apart of, she claims to love and support so much as “The Blacks”

Uplifting white media over “the blacks”, as if she isn’t black and didn’t get her start off of black media and fans. And the two shows in the clip can’t be compared, as they were discussing two different things
