Nicki Minaj has denied she was making fun of a disabled person during a Halloween club appearance.
Video emerged which appeared to show the rapper commanding someone, who appears to be in a wheelchair or mobility scooter, to “walk”.
But hitting back at the claims – she ranted: “Lol. That’s NOT a disabled person and u know that. Are u that desperate for attention?”
And in response to being questioned about her actions, she wrote: “B****, u knew. That’s my friend in a scooter. Have a great day. I surely will.”
In the video Nicki – who is dressed as a fairy queen can be seen giggling with a group of friends as she walks down a hotel corridor. Taking out her wand she starts pointing it down the corridor where the person is sitting and shouts: “Walk.
“I command you to walk.”
Despite the exact circumstances being unclear – fans took to Twitter to express their disgust. One person on Twitter wrote: “It’s 1 thing for her to post that vid, it’s another for her to continue to RT ppl clowning on that disabled person w/ her. Trash @NICKIMINAJ”
While another added: “Nicki Minaj was making fun a of disabled woman. Like idk if that was supposed to be a costume or one of her friends but she outta line.”
However, others stuck up for the star insisting she hadn’t been mocking the person.
“For those of you saying she was picking on a disabled person it was her friend sheika so stop … @NICKIMINAJ,” one wrote.
“Yall honestly think Nicki Minaj… After all she’s been though… Would make fun of a disabled person?”
