Nicki Minaj clears air on the disabled video at halloween


Nicki Minaj had an interesting Halloween, dressing up as a fairy princess and reposting ill Barb costumes, but it wasn’t all good. One of her comments this weekend also caused a bit of controversy and backlash — but she cleared that all up on Monday, Nov. 2.

This happened thanks to a video that showed her laughing, telling someone who appeared to be in a wheelchair to walk. The video — which she reportedly posted — has since been deleted, but it can be viewed below thanks to The New York Daily News.

Fans were clearly outraged when they saw this. Here’s a look at some of the backlash Minaj received after the video hit the net:

Can’t believe you did that @NICKIMINAJ!!!! As a disabled woman who uses an electric wheelchair I am so pissed at you

That hurt my feelings watching nicki minaj make fun of a disabled person.. That’s so sad. Not cool or funny at all.

When Perez Hilton posted about the story, Nicki fired back. She said the person wasn’t disabled at all and that her friend was actually in a scooter.

Lol. That’s NOT a disabled person and u know that. Are u that desperate for attention?

Bitch, u knew. That’s my friend in a scooter. Have a great day. I surely will.

The apology was enough for some fans while others were still bothered by the video.
