New York rapper Nicki Minaj may have went too far on social media. The hip-hop vixen is receiving some serious backlash after putting up an Instagram clip of a mentally ill woman.
According to reports, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI-Miami) is furious af over Nicki’s jaw-dropping post.
NAMI says it’s pissed Nicki’s used her fame — she has 70 million IG followers — to influence young people in a negative manner. A rep for NAMI says, “Nobody would make fun of a cancer patient, and mental illness is an illness like any other.” Several comments on the video claim it’s well-known in South Beach the woman in the video is mentally ill. In Nicki’s defense, it’s entirely plausible she didn’t know that … plus, she never says anything nasty to the woman. (TMZ)
This week, Nicki shocked fans after putting the footage up on her IG.
The rapper’s followers have debated over whether or not Nicki did anything wrong.
