Fans Are Rioting Against This White Writer For His Scathing Anti-Nicki Minaj Article On Forbes

Nicki's response to the uproar is an entire mood—literally.

Contributing writer Bryan Rolli hopped aboard the Nicki Minaj hate train on Wednesday (July 25) by way of business and finance world magazine Forbes with a scorching, anti-Barb smear campaign titled “Nicki Minaj’s ‘Queen’ Rollout Reeks Of Desperation And Hypocrisy.”

In the article, Rolli blitzes out a full-blown keyboard attack against the head Barb and her not-yet-released Queen album, blasting her latest “FEFE” collaboration with controversial Brooklyn rapper Tekashi6ix9ine, slamming her “Bed” single with Ariana Grande for its struggle to a Billboard chart seat, and (of course) drags Bronx femcee star Cardi B into the mix. Despite the blazing ascension of Nicki’s early “Chun-Li” single, Rolli claims she’s “still chasing the success” of the currently gold-certified record. He later defended his stance via Facebook, switching his social media accounts to private and patting himself on the back for “talking smack,” as he put it, against Nicki.  

Just as sure as the sky is blue, the contributing writer’s lambasting set Nicki’s hip-hop kingdom ablaze, as Barbs everywhere rushed to their infantry positions to defend the Queen rapper.

Meanwhile, Nicki’s got two words and one mood for it all.

  • The Forbes article released the opinion piece featuring a deliberately selected wacky photo of Nicki

    Consequently, readers everywhere fired back at the publication for the practical lynch mobbing against her.

  • Rolli revealed the true catalyst behind his anti-Nicki keyboard thrashing, though: Tekashi6ix9ine

    “Because what the heck would you do if you found out she’s going tour with a life-size Skittle with face tattoos?” Rolli wrote, conveniently failing to mention that the “NickiHndrxx Tour” he’s found such malice with not only belongs to Nicki, but her co-headliner and Atlanta rap star Future as well.

  • And after Barbs boomeranged Rolli’s “smack talk” back at him…

  • Nicki reminded everyone of her current status from the throne amid the commotion
