Nicki Minaj’s black fishing saga has now spread to TikTok. Queen Minaj is standing up for “Boyz” collaborator Jesy Nelson in the latest internet controversy.
A “blaccent” and “black fishing” scandal dogged the ex-Little Mix singer throughout her career. Nelson, a white British woman, has come under fire for adopting Black culture’s customs, leading the singer to take to the airwaves.
Minaj responded to the latest wave of black fishing allegations by putting haters in their place. Nelson has admitted that she enjoys Black culture and music.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock, a Black woman, and Nelson’s former Little Mix bandmate, allegedly called Nelson out. Following the revelation that Pinnock had sent Nelson a private DMd warning her against black fishing, Minaj accused Pinnock of being jealous.
@TikToker, a popular music critic, uploaded a video that enraged Minaj after the story went viral.
Pablo The Don on TikTok said, “You can do whatever you want with this information.” As far as Beyoncé’s internet goes, “you will never ever catch me airing a Black woman in defense of a white woman when the topic of conversation is black fishing and how racist that is” Rappers like The Barbz and Minaj jumped into Pablo’s comments with threats and insults.
“STFU. Once again trying to get selective outrage from your followers. The TOPIC WASNT BLACKPHISHING,” Minaj commented.
“YALL LOVE USING THESE TRIGGER WORDS TO GET PPL BULLIED & TO HAVE PPL DRAG ME. YOU WERE PROBABLY BULLIED A LOT TOO. YOU MAKE VIDS IN YOUR BEDROOM [smiling emoji].”
Fans of Minaj have stood by her side, and many have taken to social media to defend her reputation.
Others, on the other hand, have singled out Nicki and her following because of allegations of cyberbullying and harassment that have been leveled against them in the past.

Reminder that Nicki Minaj cried in interviews about being bullied and now is the bully herself. The hypocrisy is showing big time. pic.twitter.com/h5KoPBkWE0

Nicki wants so talk about Jesy’s mental health when LM haven’t said a negative thing about Jesy publicly. But she is using her platform to bully and attack a black woman (who has don’t absolutely nothing to her might I add) currently suffering from PPD. Make it make sense pic.twitter.com/wxJsC6cYu6
