After former Little Mix member Jesy Nelson was criticized for Blackfishing and cultural appropriation in her new music video, Nicki Minaj has decided to step in.
Nelson, who is white, has been the center of “Blackfishing” concerns since the video for “Boyz” was released. The track marks Nelson’s solo debut effort alongside Minaj. Allegedly leaked screenshots from Instagram user NoHun this weekend showed Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock raise concerns over her former bandmate’s presentation, and reportedly writing that she “blocked us,” referring to her and her two other bandmates, Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards.
Now, Nicki is sharing her thoughts.
“Sweetheart, take them text messages and shove it up your fucking ass,” Nicki said. “When you do clown shit, I gotta treat you and talk to you like you a clown. [You] don’t have to come out and try to ruin anyone. Let her enjoy this time.”
