I may be biased because I don’t like her, but Nicki Minaj has reached a new level of nasty bitch. She was in Miami and she posted a video of herself laughing at a mentally ill woman.
The woman was on the sidewalk and talking to herself. Minaj was laughing and mocking her saying, “Come over here. We’ll talk.”
Is this the kind of example you want to set for your young fans? You don’t know the pain that woman is going through. If she is hallucinating, then she may be scared and not understand what is going on.
Mental illnesses are not something to be mocked and laughed at. These are painful, chronic diseases. Someone who is struggling needs kindness and understanding, not schoolyard bullying from a grown-ass woman.
She posted this on Instagram, and many users commented on how disrespectful this is. One commenter said:
“I love how you think this is appropriate to show all the young followers that look up to you. That dehumanizing is ok and bullying… then you have the nerve to laugh… smh.”
Several local residents commented and confirmed that this woman in the video is definitely suffering from a mental illness.
A spokesperson for the National Alliance on Mental Illness said:
“Nobody would make fun of a cancer patient, and mental illness is an illness like any other.”
Filming this sick woman is a degrading invasion of her privacy. Minaj should face consequences.
