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