Fans of Nicki Minaj are expressing their anger at the pop star for Instagramming a video making fun of a woman who commenters say is known in South Beach for being mentally unwell.
In the clip, which Minaj filmed from inside her car, the distraught woman can be heard yelling, "I don't need your so-called help!" It's not clear how the interaction started, but as the woman begins to walk away, Minaj yells after her, "What did I do?" She continues to taunt her, asking, "Can we talk?," and sarcastically saying, "You look nice," before laughing.
Minaj captioned the post with the "laughing so hard I'm crying" emoji.
According to the Instagram comments, the woman is known in South Beach to be "unwell in the mind."
The video, which was posted to Instagram on Sunday night, has been viewed 1.5 million times, and has over 7,000 comments on it. A lot of those comments are from people calling out Minaj for making fun of someone who appears to be mentally ill.
We're disappointed that Nicki is laughing in this video. If she was trying to help the woman in some way, it's hard to see how this video helps. Instead, it seems to be taking insensitivity to a whole new level.
