Nicki Minaj Facing Backlash For Posting Video Of “Mentally Ill” Woman

(AllHipHop News) Some people are not happy with a video Nicki Minaj posted to her Instagram page.

The clip shows Nicki talking and laughing at a woman on a South Beach sidewalk.

At one point the woman tells Nicki to “go away.”

The Pinkprint album creator responded by saying, “What did I do? Miss, you look nice. Can we talk?”

The Miami branch of The National Alliance on Mental Illness has responded to the incident.

“Nobody would make fun of a cancer patient, and mental illness is an illness like any other,” stated the organization.

According to reports, the woman is known to suffer from a mental disorder.

However, there is no confirmation that she has been diagnosed with any form of mental illness.

Nicki’s IG video has collected nearly 2 million views and 11,000 comments on the social media site.

As of press time, the Young Money rapper has not commented about the backlash.
