Nicki Minaj Says She Will Never Use Twitter Again in Instagram Live Rant

The rapper was denounced online after she publicly discussed her reasons for waiting to get the COVID-19 vaccination


“Don’t y’all see what’s f****** happening?” Nicki Minaj asked her followers on Instagram.

Twitter allegedly suspended Nicki Minaj’s account after her decision to wait to get vaccinated sparked intense controversy. The rapper then took to Instagram Live to discuss her fears about restrictions on speech. 

“People will turn their back on you if you don’t — not only not agree, F*** agreeing. But people will isolate you if you simply speak and ask a question. Y’all don’t see what the f*** is happening?” she asked her followers in the video.

She added, “Here’s what’s interesting. So many of your favorite artists feel this way but they are afraid to speak up. And I can’t blame them. Look at what they just did. I will never use Twitter again.”

Minaj had a popular account with 22.6 million followers.

On Monday, Minaj said she would not be attending the Met gala because they required guests to be fully vaccinated. She tweeted that she wanted to do more research before getting the jab. She later added that she did not want to risk having to isolate away from her young son and that a family friend had a serious adverse reaction to the vaccination. 

After she was denounced by politicians like British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and popular medical experts like Dr. Anthony Fauci, Minaj said she was suspended from Twitter on Wednesday afternoon.

Twitter denied having sanctioned Minaj. A company spokesperson told Vulture,“Twitter did not take any enforcement action on the account referenced.”

In addition to denouncing Twitter, Minaj used her Livestream to compare her removal from the platform with the censorship rules she was made aware of when performing in China. 

The rapper noted she used to brush off what she perceived to be conspiracies, but her recent treatment prompted her to question the intentions of media companies.

“What in the world scared y’all that much to disable my f****** Twitter?” she asked. “It is scary when they start telling you you can’t ask a question about anything.”

Minaj said she is writing something “really important about all this” and that she’d be back to update her fans soon. 

Finally, it is unclear if Minaj will be visiting the White House in the upcoming days. On Wednesday a spokesperson for the Biden administration said they had offered “to connect Nicki Minaj with one of the Biden administration’s doctors to address her questions about the Covid-19 vaccine” via a phone call.

The Guardian reports “the White House said that they’ve offered such calls with others concerned about the vaccine, part of an aggressive public relations campaign to beat back rampant disinformation about the vaccine’s safety and effectiveness.”

The Trinidad native told her fans on Twitter that she had been invited to the White House and would be going.

Editor’s Note: a previous version of this story mistakenly referred to Minaj as a New York native and has been updated accordingly.

    Funny how the left is pushing for blacks to raise up and fight white people. And more and more black people are speaking out against it.
    I just hope she can get more to join her. This is what we need on the culture war front. If the largest Black Stars speak out this whole culture war will end.
    And once we can get that to happen all the rest will fall like dominos.

    Nothing would make me happier than to see Twitter beg her to come back and for her to tell them to fuck all the way off.

    Of course, that will never happen. There’s always Parler (which I think is on life support, I haven’t been back there in a while) or Gettr, or Gab (which is run by Christians, not anti-Semites like Gov Abbott seems to think) or for sure Rumble and/or Bitchute. But her advisors will talk her out of it. She’s a mom now and she has a lot of slutty pictures floating around she needs to clean up before her child is old enough to be wounded by seeing them.

    She’ll go to the White House, she’ll get the shot, the story will be over. Nothing ever happens.

    Much as I hate pop culture playing politics, I do appreciate this. I might not take Niki Minaj’s advice politically, but I’m all for her using her resources to fight a fight many wish they could, and maybe set precedent in the process.

    Good. We need a SV/Big Tech exodus, they are parasites feeding on American values. Employees who still love this country working for Google, Facebook and Twitter should seriously re-evaluate their priorities in life.
