Singer Nicki Minaj shocked everyone as she seemed to taunt a lady in a wheelchair at a party she was hosting in Las Vegas.
This is not the first time that Minaj is surrounded by controversies. The singer was dressed up on the occasion of Halloween as a busty fairy and had a wand in her hand. But, what astonished many was that she seemed to taunt a disabled lady by asking her to “walk” at a party hosted by her in Las Vegas.
A video was posted on Instagram on this Saturday where this Super Bass singer apparently joked about the character of handicapped-superstar, played by Damon Wayans. He portrayed this role in a TV show of nineties.
However, this video has been now removed from Minaj’s Instagram account.
While laughing and having a good time with her pals, News.com.au the singer ordered the lady to walk. But, there were many of her fans who defended Minaj saying that the lady in question was none other than her makeup artist, Sheika Daley.
A fan wrote that the said lady was not disabled but one of her friends who was too drunk to move out of it.
Minaj took to social media (Twitter) and confirmed that it was her friend in a scooter.
But, it seems that her explanation was not sufficient to pacify her detractors who slammed her for her insensitive remarks. They tweeted and posted comments on a video that has over 389,000 ‘likes’ on the Instagram.
One of her critics wrote that it offended her immensely as she is paralyzed and would never be able to walk again. So, ‘taunting’ or making fun of a disabled person is simply uncalled for. Another wrote that the singer lacked knowledge and was ignorant.
This is not the only time Nicki Minaj is stuck in a controversy on social media. She had earlier been into an online tiff with singer Taylor Swift in the month of July when she was not nominated in the “MTV Video Music Awards”
