Nicki Minaj found herself on the defensive after an Instagram user commented on her body.
The self-anointed Queen of Rap shared a behind-the-scenes video clip of her “Barbie Tingz” video shoot on Sunday (April 22). In the comment section, Instagram user @mscolorpurple wrote, “Isn’t your body fake?? you paid to look like you.”
Minaj fired back, “@mscolorpurple u can’t even show ur whole face. Must suck to be so jealous, miserable, insecure & ugly.”
Instagram users commenting on the jab were unsurprisingly divided on Minaj’s response. Some thought she shouldn’t have responded at all, while others came to the defense of the women she insulted.
Minaj is in the middle of a full blown return to the public eye. After months of social media silence, she emerged with two new singles — “Chun-Li” and “Barbie Tingz” — did an in-depth interview with Beats 1 Radio, and is back to posting regularly on her various social media accounts.
