On her talk show Tuesday (December 6), Wendy directly singled out Nicki and her crew over making fun of an alleged mentally ill person on IG.
“I don’t know if Nicki was on one or what at the time, but you know, you need to be a lot more sensitive to mental illness. And I know we all have our ways, we forget about being sensitive and stuff, that was a direct, buzz the window down, sit, probably a car full of people that are smart enough to tell her, ‘Yo, Nicki, alright, stop making jokes. Nicki, you’re going to post that? Wait, don’t post that. Don’t post it.’ So she’s surrounded by stu’nods.”
Since putting the footage on her IG page, Nicki has received some serious backlash.
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.
