“And people like Nicki Minaj, I have to say this,” Reid stated. “You have a platform, sister, that is 22 million followers. Ok? I have two million followers. You have 22 million followers on Twitter. For you to use your platform to encourage our community to not protect themselves and save their lives, my God, sister, you could do better than that. You got that platform. It’s a blessing. It’s a blessing that you got that, that people listen to you.
“And they listen to you more than they listen to me, for you to use your platform to put people in the position of dying from a disease they don’t have to die from, oh my God,” Reid continued to rant. “As a fan, as a hip hop fan, as somebody who is your fan, I am so sad that you did that. So sad that you did that, sister. Oh, my God.”
Minaj responded, slamming Reid: “This is what happens when you’re so thirsty to down another black woman (by the request of the white man), that you didn’t bother to read all my tweets. ‘My God SISTER do better’ imagine getting ur dumb ass on tv a min after a tweet to spread a false narrative about a black woman.”
