Nicki Minaj Death Threats: Twitter Followers Respond To Alleged Romney Endorsement Lyrics

nicki minaj romney

Nicki Minaj received death threats after sparking political controversy with some recent song lyrics which appear to show her support for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. President Barack Obama, a plethora of music journalists, and news pundits have all weighed-in on the meaning behind the comments on Lil’ Wayne’s “Mercy” remix. Some believe the words may have been a straight-forward Romney endorsement while others feel the phrasing was part of a character persona. Some irate fans are tweeting threats to the popular rapper, according to the Christian Post. According to the LA Weekly, there are 10 other songs far more Republican-leaning than the rap tune currently making headlines.

During the “Mercy” rap song Minaj had this to say:

“I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney, you lazy b—–s is f—ing up the economy.”

While the majority of the rapper’s followers simply expressed their displeasure with her recent political phrases, others were not so kind. Tweets in reference to the Lil’ Wayne lyrics ranged from posts saying someone should kill the singer to wishing she would die in a fire.

One Twitter follower wrote, “Someone plz kill Nicki Minaj.”

Not all the reaction to the Republican announcement was negative. A follower on the social network who identified himself as Paul Brown, had this to say about the brewing controversy:

“Haha. Team Nicki! I love Mitt Romney too. I, like Nicki, worked hard for my wealth and refuse to let Obama dictate who I share it with.”

Some fans of the “Starship” rapper voiced their complete lack of concern about the politically infused lyrics scandal altogether. During her appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards show, the performer did not appear bothered about either the Romney rap lyrics debate or the rumors of a boycott by fans who support President Obama.

This tweet appears to end the controversy over who the rap singer will be voting for in November.

    Is there any doubt that a Romney administration would favor the rich and increase the income gap in our country? Mitt is a pariah in Mormon Clothing and will stop at nothing to expand an empire of greed for the rich in this country by expanding tax cuts for the 1% of the wealthiest Americans. He’s out to gut the Middle Class for every red cent he can get. Will his sacred Mormon underwear grant him the protection and money to buy this election? See for yourself as Mitt dons his tighty-whities sent down from the Good Lord Himself at
