Rapper Nicki Minaj is constantly surrounded by controversies. This time she is in the headlines as she alleged that Twitter has restricted her account after her COVID tweets. Meanwhile, Twitter has denied the claims and said it has not penalized for her tweets.
Minaj took Instagram’s story and wrote that she was in ‘Twitter jail’. She also stated that the site didn’t like what I was saying. The television personality then went live on Instagram to elaborate about the suspension. She said, “What in the world scared ya’ll that much to disable my f***ing Twitter, I have not put out anything that I said was a fact about anything, I simply said we should be able to ask questions and speak, and it’s scary when they start telling you, you can’t ask questions about anything.”
“Twitter, a place where people say the most horrific things every day, stops me from tweeting my poll.” The songwriter and actress went on to discuss censorship on social media surrounding the COVID-19 vaccine and conspiracy theories. She also said that she would never go back on Twitter.
However, Twitter has denied the claim that the rapper was banned from the social media site. A spokesperson for the company sent an e-mail to The LA Times. The e-mail reads, “Twitter did not take any enforcement action on the account referenced.”
