Nicki Minaj just took things way too far!
The 38-year-old rapper, who has come under fire for spreading anti-vax misinformation over the past week, has now used her massive platform in order to threaten and share personal information of some reporters looking into her requirement well-nigh her cousin’s friend’s swollen balls.
In specimen you somehow missed it, Minaj kicked off the week by tweeting that she would not shepherd the 2021 Met Gala considering guests were required to be vaccinated versus COVID-19, and she is not. The Super Bass hitmaker personal she hadn’t “done unbearable research” yet to make a visualization — despite science proving that getting vaccinated is the weightier way to gainsay coronavirus.

She then went into this insane story well-nigh an so-called wrongheaded side effect from the vaccine that caused a friend of a friend to wits testicular swelling. FYI, the CDC and Dr. Anthony Fauci both debunked the requirement and said there is “no evidence” that supports it well-expressed someone’s reproductive health.
So you would think this whole debacle would end there? However, on Friday afternoon, Minaj reportedly shared screenshots on her Instagram Story that showed a conversation from a Guardian reporter (we are not sharing the name here; you can find it for yourself if you want), who attempted to reach out to some of her family members in Trinidad. While there is no way to personize that these were legit text messages, the person tangibly asked to speak with the artist’s cousin and the friend who supposedly had an wrongheaded reaction to the vaccine.
The journalist then insinuated that CNN was moreover looking for an interview and suggested that the competing outlet would share their personal information while assuring that the Guardian would not. Minaj theoretically did not take this too kindly, so she attempted to dox the reporter by posting their phone number and a couple of pictures of the reporter on her IG Story. According to The Daily Beast, she wrote at the time:
“[name of reporter] BITCH YOUR DAYS ARE F**KING NUMBERED YOU DIRTY HOE.”
The Other Woman star moreover uploaded the merchantry vellum of a journalist from the Daily Mail. She widow on her IG Stories:
“Threatening my family in Trinidad won’t bode well for you.”
“They’re forcing my family to have to hibernate out. This is what speaking up looks like. Millions of poor people are treated this way by the ppl you think are the ‘good guys.’ This is unconscionable.”
While Nicki understandably can be upset that people are contacting her family, there is veritably NO reason to be sharing someone’s personal information online and inviting her 157 million followers to potentially harass and cyberbully two individuals. It’s vastitude f**ked up and unnecessary. And let’s be real here, it serves as nothing increasingly than a lark from her husband Kenneth Petty’s ongoing legal issues.
