Five years after rhyming about having her own Giuseppe Zanotti sneaker on “Pound the Alarm,” Nicki Minaj is singing a different tune.
On Friday (Feb. 3), the superstar rapper unleashed a series of tweets aimed at the shoe designer, accusing him of racism and disrespect, among other things.
“This is wonderful,” she tweeted. “#GiuseppeZanotti seems to think it’s ok to name his sneakers after me but his PR says they won’t take our call. Lol…I met #GiuseppeZanotti years ago. At which time, he told me I inspired him to design a sneaker in my honor. Wore them on the cover of Cosmo.”
But after coining #RunMeMyCheck and #RunMeMyMufknCHECKmyNIG, Nicki said her tweets weren’t actually about financial issues. “Don’t care about the money,” she wrote. “It’s just the disrespect. You’re not taking MY call? Lol. Give some money to charity in my name or smthn…I got time today. barbz trend this cuz he gon learn today. The racism & disrespect won’t b tolerated.”
