Nicki Minaj Asks Fans to ‘Never Threaten’ Anyone on Her Behalf: ‘I Don’t and Never Condoned That’

Nicki Minaj has a message for her loyal Barbz.

The Queen of Rap, 40, spoke out on social media to her fanbase on Sunday, urging them to “never threaten anyone” on her behalf, Revolt reports

and screengrabs by fans of her now-expired Instagram Story reveal.

The “Super Bass” rapper took to her Instagram Story to share a brief note addressing her fans’ behavior. “Dear Barbz,” the rapper wrote, “Be sure to never threaten anyone on my behalf.”

She continued, “Whether on the internet or in person. Whether in jest, or not. I don’t & never have condoned that.”

The superstar then reminded her followers that her long-awaited new album, Pink Friday 2, is coming soon. “We have an amazing album right around the corner 12/08/23,” she shared. “It feels so surreal & euphoric.”

“Wishing you blessings on blessings,” the rapper concluded.

Minaj did not clarify why she made the statement at this time. Although, it appears as though she was referring to her fans’ anticipated response to her upcoming new record.

As reported by Revolt, the Barbz’ social media usage has nearly led to Minaj being sued.

Last year, a report by The Daily Beast revealed YouTuber and pop culture commentator Kimberly Nicole Foster threatened to take legal action against the hip-hop star after a critical post on X (formerly known as Twitter) prompted violent threats from fans.

Minaj’s highly anticipated fifth studio album will arrive on Dec. 8. Late last month, the “Barbie World” artist revealed in an Instagram Live that she was shifting the release date for a second time from Nov. 17 to Dec. 8 to both fall on her birthday and to accommodate for the vinyl release.

In the video to her fans, she said, “The new album date for this incredible body of work that I am so proud of is on a very special day to me and to the Barbz. Pink Friday 2, I am so happy to announce, will be out on my birthday, December 8th.”
