The world of Barbzdom is up in arms after their icon Nicki Minaj deleted her Twitter account Sunday. The singer pulled her account following a dispute with fans over blocking website NickiDaily.com for allegedly posting leaked tracks. The “leaked tracks” were reportedly just snippets from Minaj’s new album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded that were available on iTunes, but that was enough for Minaj to block their Twitter account and begin the Twitter maelstrom that wrapped up with these two tweets:
For those on mobile devices with images too small too read, the tweets were:
Exactly. Posted leaked music! *deletin twttr* RT @SaveMeBarb: That’s what I’m saying RT @NickiBarbPink: NickiDaily kno why they got blocked
Like seriously, its but so much a person can take. Good f***ing bye
These comments were preceded by a falling out with fans on Saturday that including these two rather harsh tweets:
And that’s exactly why I’m paying the barbz DUST right now! And deleting my twitter. Smdh – don’t cry 4 me argentina
On 2nd thought I’ll just follow a new set of barbz. The ones I follow r very mean and ratchet. *side eyes them* *looks into the sea 4 more*
It’s an amazing turn of events for a young artist who built up a great relationship with her fans using the microblogging site. There has been no official word from Minaj’s camp on how long it will be before the rapper returns to Twitter, or if she plans to return at all.
Twitter gives you 30 days to reactivate your account, so I suppose the clock is ticking!
