Nicki Minaj and Latto’s Twitter beef exploded on the timeline last week after the Queens rapper accused the “Big Energy” rapper of not defending her after “Super Freaky Girl” was ineligible for the rap category at the Grammys. “If SFG (Super Freaky Girl) has 2B moved out RAP then so does Big Energy! ANY1 who says diff is simply a Nicki hater or a troll,” Nicki tweeted at the time.

Latto had asked Nicki not to bring her name up. That’s when the Queens rapper clapped back, “This Karen has probably mentioned my name in over 100 interviews. But today, scratch off decides to be silent; rather than speak up for the black woman she called her biggest inspiration.”

“Karen” is a term that was coined for white women who are seen acting entitled, and/or often racist. Latto, who is biracial, would not fit the bill. That’s why many Twitter users were confused when Nicki called the Atlanta native a “Karen” in their Twitter feud.

“Being a Karen is more about being manipulative and being passive aggressive,” Nicki began on an Instagram Live with Mack Maine. She then gave an example of a white woman accusing a Black man of something he did not do.

“This is a great example if you think about it,” she continued. “[A person] knows that when that white police officer comes, he gone arrest that Back man because there’s already a stereotype of the Black man. So, she can easily pretend to be innocent and sweet in front of the cop because she knows that cop don’t like that Black man either.”

Although Nicki did not mention Latto by name, she seemingly summed up their Twitter spat.

“If you knew you were lying on me, right, and then got me attacked while you played innocent, then that’s what a ‘Karen’ means. Goodness gracious. Papa Bear’s two years old and he can understand that.”
