Nicki Minaj Won’t Stand For High Fashion Designer Giuseppe Zanotti’s Racism

The Anaconda rapper lit up a twitter feud and went OFF... and won!

Nicki Minaj is NOT happy with her designer friend Giuseppe Zanotti.

Today the grammy winner came for Giuseppe Zanotti after learning the designer has been naming shoes “Nicki”… but won’t take her phone calls for access to his new collection. That’s got to burn.

That’s not all…

The Anaconda rapper lit up a twitter feud and went OFF on Giuseppe, demanding he write her a check and accusing him of blatant racism.

See the receipts, here:

The most brilliant part of it all? Not only does Nicki go VIRAL, blast the asshole who shaded and stole from her, look like a badass feminist who doesn’t take bullshit AND she then posts this after the all the drama:
