Nicki Minaj Receives Backlash From Zendaya Fans After Posting Picture Of Her Own Barbie Taneisha Nicole September 30, 2015 Does it seem like Nicki Minaj never wants her achievements or the recognition she feels she deserves to go unnoticed? Well, this week the rapper has come under fire from Zendaya fans, after she congratulated the young performer on the Barbie made in her likeness created by Mattel. It seemed as though her congratulations was more about herself than Zendaya, even to the point of posting an image of her own Barbie doll instead the Disney stars doll. Although attempting to redeem herself after by posting a side by side shot of both Barbies soon after, we’re guessing it came after reading what a few angry fans had to say in the comments section. Congrats on your doll, Zendaya! Did u know Barbie made me one a cpl years back? 😁😍 It was such an honor & a HUGE surprise. Anyway, I love your doll’s hair! I love what it means for other little girls who will identify with it & be empowered. Continue to be proud of yourself girls!!!!! 😘 #Barbie A photo posted by Nicki Minaj (@nickiminaj) on Sep 27, 2015 at 7:09pm PDT The Zendaya Barbie doll is of her 2015 Oscar look, where she was seen rocking dreadlocks, which in the end caused controversy after Giuliana Rancic‘s “patchouli oil and weed” comment on E!’s Fashion Police. When I was little I couldn’t find a Barbie that looked like me, my…how times have changed. Thank you @barbie for this honor and for allowing me to be apart of your diversification and expansion of the definition of beauty. Can’t wait to keep doing amazing things with you😘😘😘 #besuper @luxurylaw @theshelbyswain A photo posted by Zendaya (@zendaya) on Sep 26, 2015 at 3:05pm PDT Check Out Zendaya’s fans reaction below… Is Nicki Minaj jealous or was she really trying to give props where due?
