Did Nicki Minaj Threaten To Shoot Mariah Carey On Set Of American Idol?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"American Idol judge Mariah Carey says multiple people heard fellow judge Nicki Minaj say, `If I had a gun, I would shoot the b***h" after launching a curse-filled rant at Carey during an Idol audition, Barbara Walters said on `The View` today after interviewing Carey.


Carey told Walters, who conducted the interview this morning before the show, that she `doesn`t feel comfortable emotionally` but will continue with the Fox show and has hired extra security.

But in a tweet this afternoon, Minaj said, `Hey yAll. Lets just say nicki said smthn about a gun. ppl will believe it cuz she`s a black rapper. Lmao. I`ll then hit up Barbara n milk it.`"


It turns out that the recent profanity-filled outburst that Nicki Minaj directed at Mariah Carey is a lot more serious than originally reported.

There is a quantum leap difference between uttering expletives, and threats of violence. Idol should immediately investigate the allegations, and if it`s true that Minaj threatened to shoot Carey she should be fired post haste.

If you visit a prostitute you shouldn`t be too surprised if you come down with a case of the clap, and if you hire a low-life rapper, you shouldn`t be too surprised if she brings chaos to the set.

I will never forgive the Idol producers for ruining my favorite show by hiring Minaj, and I will make it my mission to warn everyone that "American Idol" is no longer a family-friendly show.

I urge Carey to quit "Idol", and I plead with viewers to seek more wholesome entertainment.
