Nicki Minaj’s LGBT Fans Are Calling Her Out For Not Acknowledging Orlando Massacre

In the wake of the horrific Orlando shooting massacre, hundreds of celebrities took to their social media accounts to offer their condolences to those affected and to comfort their fans.

Three days after the deadly shooting, Minaj broke her Twitter silence to promote the release of her new song.

A fan expressed disappointment that Minaj could find time to tweet about her song but not acknowledge the horrific Orlando massacre.

A few minutes later, the fan tweeted: “Nicki unfollowed me because I called her out for promoting her song and not even acknowledging the tragedies.”

Minaj’s actions soon turned into a heated debate on Twitter, about whether or not celebrities should use their platforms to speak out on social issues or times of national mourning.

Minaj began favoriting tweets from fans defending her right to tweet or not tweet as she sees fit.
