Nicki Minaj received a great deal of backlash following a backhanded compliment she gave to actress Zendaya over her new Oscar-inspired Barbie.
Nicki took to Instagram to congratulate the young star on the new Barbie doll made in her likeness, but made sure to mention that she had one first.
Zendaya was respectfully honored with her own signature doll inspired by her 2015 Oscars look when she wore “patchouli and weed scented” dreadlocks as coined by “Fashion Police” commentator Giuliana Rancic.
As happy as Nicki claimed she was for Zendaya, she failed to even post a picture of Zendaya’s doll and opted to reflect on her previous Barbie moment.
People were not happy with Nicki’s apparent jealousy, and let her know it.
Nicki quickly posted a newer congratulatory post that actually reflected Zendaya this time.
However, the damage had already been done.
Nicki is too old to be picking fights with young pop stars. First Taylor Swift, then Miley Cyrus, and now Zendaya……
Come on Nicki. Act like your over the age of 30!
