Nicki Minaj took to her social media yesterday to accuse reporters of harassing her family.
As revenge for the supposed harassment, the rapper posted the phone numbers of two reporters to her Instagram Story, inviting spam calls and threats. And from her screenshots, the journalists had been trying to contact her cousin’s friend who she had claimed suffered swollen balls — one of the main reasons for her decision not to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
Minaj wrote on Instagram, “Sharlene Rampersad BITCH YOUR DAYS ARE F–KING NUMBERED YOU DIRTY HOE.”
She then posted screenshots of Rampersad reaching out to someone in Minaj’s family on behalf of The Guardian about the pop star’s claims, calling the texts harassment.
Minaj ’grammed the business card of a reporter for theDaily Mail as well, James Fielding. Guardian Media Limited released a statement denouncing the “intimidation of journalists” after a CNC3 reporter was “subjected to a range of attacks via social media, including death threats.”
