Twitter : Nicki Minaj & now abusive Stone Roses fans

Post by marowak » Mon Jul 09, 2012 3:16 pm

Well - I felt someone was going to mention it sooner or later.

After your twitter / blog posts etc the whole world has gone into a Twitter frenzy >

So my question to you is ....

What was your favourite of the replies?

I know you seemed quite keen on the assdick one - and have you managed to gain any new Minaj followers?

turns out the assdick thing was actually a fan of mine who was being sarcastic. ho hum. Cahir's little read out still makes me laugh my arse off.

in fact the whole thing has been pretty tiresome all in, happy that it seems to be dying down now (famous last words).
Shows? All of em.

There's no such thing as rockstars, there's just people who play music eh?
insist on the impossible.

We're adding the suffix 'gate' to this now?

One of the funniest consequences is that Frank actually gained nearly 3 thousand followers from that little thing! :D

That said, sweet baby jesus people get pissed about someone they don't know calling someone else they don't know, rude.
I'd rather be the one who loves than to be loved and never even know.

I only found out she was female a few weeks ago, having never heard of her music before then I just assumed it was a male Nicky. A friend then informed be she was in fact female, after looking at photos I am again unsure however.

It seems as if talking ill of popstars is a very good way to get free publicity, you should definitely insult Justin Bieber or something before you release the next album.

For the record, that was probably one of the funniest things I've ever seen on Twitter, Frank. You hardly insulted her, and her legions of moronic fans swarm at you like angry bees. Luckily, you seemed to have swatted them off ;)

I came to it late but all I could find were lots and lots of Frank fans defending Frank and about two small kids trying to have a go, maybe there were more earlier I missed...

At one stage I was getting about 300 abusive replies a minute. It was quite something.

Maybe you could take them all to court for cyber bullying?

I am interested - out of the whole thing - did Nikci herself (himself?) ever mention it - or was it just the fans :?:

i know it's not in response but saw this (Boing Boing thing below) yesterday, which may be (although i s'pose indirectly) related... to some of the (whole) issue:

http://boingboing.net/2012/07/09/nicky- ... exism.html

people's comments on it interest me too...
... very awful, especially as it can also be found in teaching practitioners (in my small experience), who make similar mistakes in believing that being outrageously horrid is a way of garnering respect and some form of dominance:(

Twittergate - Nicki Minaj

Post by Helium » Tue Jul 10, 2012 10:14 am

A friend of mine is a MASSIVE Micki Minaj fan and so I didn't RT it initially as I was worried wouldnt speak to me again. He did tweet me to say that "my Frank" had insulted "his Nicki" which really made me laugh. We have NOT discussed it since.

I've been getting a good laugh from googling "nicki minaj frank turner" and perusing the headlines over the past few days. Worlds collide.

I just dialed up a video (against my better judgment) called "Starships" and there is no question that she is a she. No surgeon in the world can build an ass like that. Boobs are fake, tho.
