‘Walk!’: Did Nicki Minaj REALLY shout this at a wheelchair user?


Nicki Minaj came under fire this weekend for some seriously controversial footage, but she swears it was a misunderstanding.

The singer was hosting a Halloween event at 1OAK nightclub in Las Vegas over the weekend, donning a gold and cream fairy costume for the occasion.

In a clip posted to YouTube, the singer is seen laughing backstage with her entourage, before pointing her fairy wand at someone and shouting "Walk! I command you to walk."

The person in question appears to be sitting in a motorised wheelchair, leading many to hit back at Nicki for her seemingly insenstitve comment.

Taking to Twitter to respond to the claims, Nicki said the person was a "friend" and that she was in a "scooter," not a wheelchair.

"Lol. That's NOT a disabled person and u know that. Are u that desperate for attention?" she wrote in response to a Perez Hilton piece about the footage.

The writer replied by saying, "And how was I supposed to know a person in a wheelchair ISN'T disabled?" which certainly didn't go down well with Nicki.

"B**ch, u knew. That's my friend in a scooter. Have a great day. I surely will," she wrote.

Some sources have suggested the person in the scooter is in fact Nicki's close friend and make-up artist Sheika Daley, but the footage is still stirring up mixed reactions online:

One thing's for sure, we'll be using #BitchYouKnew as the new #MileyWhatsGood next time we have a bone to pick with someone.
