Nicki Minaj refutes claims that she threatened to gun down Mariah Carey.
The rapper hit the headlines earlier this week when she was videoed yelling profanities at her fellow judge on US TV singing competition American Idol.
Mariah visited talk programme The View Thursday morning and revealed that people on the set heard Nicki say, ‘If I had a gun, I would shoot the bitch.’
Nicki denounces this statement as hearsay.
‘The struggle to be a victim is real in these streets. Lmaooooooooooo (sic),’ she wrote on Twitter. ‘The struggle to not have the kid on the show is real in these streets. Lmaooooooooo.’
Nicki is upset that the interview was aired without garnering her side of the story.
‘Hey yAll. Lets just say nicki said smthn about a gun. ppl will believe it cuz she’s a black rapper. Lmao. I’ll then hit up Barbara n milk it (sic),’ she posted.
‘Ironically no camera or mic heard the gun comment tho. Lol @ the struggle. Not even the producers believed u. Say no to violence barbz.
‘Barbara walters didn’t reach out from our team barbz. I guess we’re too dangerous. Don’t shake if u don’t wannA get shook!!!! LmAooooooooooo.’
