Nicki Minaj came under fire on Monday night after the female emcee posted a video on Instagram of a woman whom many are calling mentally ill.

In the heartbreaking visual, posted for the 32-year-old’s 69.7 million followers, an elderly white woman can be seen having an argument with Minaj over an unknown reason.

The woman, who was standing in front of a shoe store at the time, at one point yelled to the rapper, “Go away,” but Minaj continued to laugh and taunt the lady. The video, which also included a random man telling Nicki he’s a big fan, was captioned with a simple cry face emoji.

The comments on the rapper’s post were relatively unanimous, most fans blasting the “Anaconda” artist for entertaining a conversation with the unstable woman — let alone, posting it on social media.

“She didn’t have to post this video. She didn’t even have to have the camera out. You can tell something wrong with this lady,” one commenter wrote.

Someone else posted, “Anyone recognize that lady? Contact her family & lawyer up. Celebs are not above the law. Was recorded without womans consent & humiliated on social media.”

A few fans, however, did back Nicki up. Some suggested that there was not enough content in the video to justify berating the rapper and that, quite possibly, the woman was drunk and not mentally ill, as many suggested.

The video, meanwhile, picked up extra steam after Wendy Williams commented on it and suggested that the Trinidadian native was being an “insensitive Bitch.”


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
