A Nicki Minaj fan was punched, kicked, pushed, and generally man-handled after rushing the stage and the singer during her July 24 concert in Miami. Luckily, there’s video.
Though it’s not entirely clear what happened, it seems as though one fan just couldn’t keep his hands to himself, rushed onto the stage with Minaj, and puts his hands around her waist. His intentions are completely unknown, but this is the sort of thing that usually gets the attention of well-paid security detail who were nanoseconds behind him, pulling him away from Minaj, dragging him to the ground, and kicking the crap out of him. All on stage.
Media reaction to the incident is mixed, with the Huffington Post opining, “The fan certainly acted out of line by jumping on stage and grabbing Minaj by the waist, but was the reaction of her gigantic security guards in proportion to the offense?” Regardless, videos of the event continue to make the round on the Internet.
Minaj herself seemed “unfazed” by the incident, saying, “I want to say thank you for the love, Florida!”
Nicki Minaj is currently touring in support of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, bringing out locals Lil’ Wayne and Birdman to the Miami show. Minaj also recently booked a Today Show gig – more on that as it develops.
Minaj may have responded to the incident on Twitter, when a fan tweeted concern for the singer:
