The Best Twitter Reactions to Nicki Minaj’s Call Out of Miley Cyrus at the VMAs

At Sunday night’s Video Music Awards things got a little awkward between Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus. After accepting her award for Best Hip Hop Video, Minaj took the stage to thank her fans, her pastor, and send a little message to Cyrus.

Miley, what’s good?

Last week we reported on an interview Cyrus gave to the New York Times in which she said Nicki wasn’t nice, or polite, and that she’d basically been shut out of a nomination for Video of the Year because of bad karma.

“What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It’s not very polite,” Cyrus said, commenting on Minaj’s critique of the VMA’s double standards between Black and white pop stars.

“If you want to make it about race, there’s a way you could do that. But don’t make it just about yourself,” Cyrus proclaimed.

Apparently Minaj read the interview, and when she hit the stage, she delivered a clear message to Cyrus–who among other things, called Snoop Dogg her “mammy,” wore faux locs, and talked incessantly about smoking weed.

Of course, Twitter went OFF with folks sharing memes, jokes, and commentary on Nicki’s acceptance speech.

Here are some of our favs.

What was Cyrus’ reaction to Nicki’s speech?

I think that says it all.

    I usually hate this saying, but it is so appropriate for Miley jumping in on this beef that had nothing to do with her:

    “Stay in a child’s lane”

      Wasn’t Miley asked about it in an interview because she was hosting the VMAs?

        She was asked if she knew what was said. Miley said she didn’t follow the beef but then had diarrhea of the mouth trying to police Nicki’s comments. She should’ve just left it at the fact that she wasn’t following what was going on instead of coming for Nicki… especially since it turned out that Taylor was the one assuming Nicki felt any kind of way towards her when nobody was thinking about her to begin with.

          That’s true. She didn’t need to give an opinion. Although, I don’t disagree that Nicki was using the race issue to complain about not getting an award. I don’t beleive Nicki really cares about black women in general not getting the respect they deserve. Nicki and Miley are both immature clowns. The only difference is Nicki can’t blame her behavior on being young. I wish they both would shut up and go away.

            I don’t really follow any of the women involved, but I do believe Nicki had a point even if she was just whining. As raunchy as Nicki is, she’s no worse than Miley, Katey, or Taylor in their portrayal of women’s bodies. They all seem to be living by the “sex sells” mantra so if that’s the case for ww, why wouldn’t it be the case for bw? (That’s just my opinion based on the little bit that I know. Personally, I’m anti-awards shows altogether, so really none of this matters to me in the long run, but I’m just say…)

              Yes, Nicki did have a point. I’m just saying I’m not sure if she would make that point about the industry if she wasn’t directly affected. That’s the real reason I don’t like to get involved with the public stances from people like Nicki and Tyrese. It’s self motivated and dissipates the minute they get what they want regardless of whether things have actually changed. Maybe I should give up on hoping for artisit to be conscious just because it’s the right thing to do.

              Nicki has had a rather successful career using the sex sells mantra so I don’t know what her complaint would be in that regard. Nicki is definitely the raunchiest of the bunch because of her lyrics. Miley is a trashy attention wh0re. Taylor looks like a soccor mom most of the time. If anything, the other girls need to take a lesson from her in the PR department. Overall, complaining about Anaconda not being nominated for a freaking MTV awards because it has a “cultural impact” is silly. She acted like she made the sequel to Thriller because she was bent over in a thong for 3 minutes. It’s true white people get passes on being mediocre and sexual more than blacks. But Nicki isn’t doing herself any favors with the way she tries to express her issues. She came across like a petulant child that got dismissed by another fool rather than a woman with valid point that should be taking seriously.

                “….acting like she made the sequel to Thriller….” LOL! This is probably as much as I follow today’s artists. Let’s just say I had a blast at last week’s Earth Wind and Fire concert!

                What you think of the video or Nicki doesn’t matter. Rather
                you believe she is really sincere also isn’t a factor because she still spoke
                out about the injustice within the music industry. The clear advantage that
                Adele has over Jazmine Sullivan and I’m not talking about vocal ability. Nicki
                has spoken out about how corrupt the industry is plenty of times. When it all
                comes down to it Miley basically called Nicki an “Angry Black Woman”.
                A stereotype black woman have to face anytime they object to anything. How actually did Miley dismiss her? Even when she spoke last night she bascially still missed the point about Racism in the industry. It’s not the award but lies behind it. Does anyone not remember what happened to rock? Started by black people but can name me a current black rock star besides Lenny, Prince, or Living Colour. Of course you can’t it has become white washed. The sing thing can happen to r&b and hip hop music as well.

                  What I think of her video matters because all of this started because Nicki dekt cheated by not being nominated for Video of the Year. Nicki missed an opportunity to give a profound speech last night. Instead of using the moment to express the issues she’s supposedly passionate about she acted a fool. I would have even respected her more if she boycotted the award show she thinks is so racist.

    Nicki is a clown. What’s with the different voices when she speaks? It’s hard to take her seriously. I don’t know which personality, if any, is the real Nicki.

    I wish that she didn’t use the B word. Yet, Nicki Minaj didn’t start this situation. She can just say “What’s Good” alone and that can be very witty. It is also true that Cyrus started this. Miley Cyrus’ ignorant statements about calling Snoop her “mammy” doesn’t surprise. Many white folks play slick and when they get called out, they play “victim.” Black people know how the game works. Many people in the media ignored how Miley Cryrus made a racist comment about Snoop, but some of them are obsessed with Nicki Minaj’s response. Hmm. Double standards truly exist in our society.

      If the only reason she spoke is to promote her video than that’s something that Nicki has to deal with internally. When is the last time you heard about a white singer speak out racism within the music industry? Jill Scott and Janelle Monae are other artist to speak out however Nicki get’s the most attention because she has made it too mainstream.

    But how do you literally go from 0 to hood in a matter of seconds? Girl, bye. Stunt or not, this is absolute nonsense. These entertainers will do anything to stay relevant, including Miley’s crazy self who should’ve minded her business.

    These reactions are funny. But on the real, I can’t wait until both Nicki and Miley’s 15 minutes are up.

    Miley is a recording industry insider, after the rebellious phase she will be groomed into being the next Joan Jett or something. Her bread’s already buttered both sides, she probably doesn’t care what Nicki Minaj thinks of her. In fifty years they will be wheeling her out to sing family favourites, light jazz in a sparkly dress.
