A fiery online feud between rap icons Nicki Minaj and Megan Thee Stallion has taken a dramatic turn, with diss tracks and personal attacks dominating the social media landscape for the past 72 hours. The clash reached a new level when Nicki Minaj released a diss track titled “Big Foot” aimed directly at Megan Thee Stallion, unleashing a barrage of scathing lyrics.
In the diss track, Minaj, whose real name is Onika Maraj, left no topic untouched, touching on sensitive subjects, including Megan’s late mother, a shooting incident involving Tory Lanez, and even making allegations about Megan undergoing liposuction. The track also hinted at personal disputes, with Nicki questioning Megan’s honesty and referencing her late mother.
The online feud escalated after Megan Thee Stallion released a song titled “Hiss,” which seemed to take a dig at Nicki’s husband, Kenneth Petty, referring to Megan’s Law—a federal law related to sharing information about registered sex offenders.
Following the release of “Big Foot,” Nicki Minaj faced backlash online, with netizens accusing her of making light of Megan’s recent shooting incident and criticizing her involvement in a controversial incident in 2021 involving a lap dance with a 13-year-old boy on stage.
The feud has spilt over onto social media platforms, where fans have engaged in heated exchanges. An autistic TikToker, Bela Delgado, claimed that Nicki Minaj’s fans, known as the Barbz, attempted to dox him after he posted a video supporting Megan Thee Stallion. Delgado issued an apology and pleaded for an end to the harassment.
Megan Thee Stallion has remained silent amid the controversy, only being spotted at a party, seemingly unaffected by the ongoing feud. The clash has not only fueled online debates but also impacted their fanbases and resulted in collateral damage as fans engage in aggressive actions against those expressing opposing views.
The evolving feud between these Grammy-winning artists continues to captivate social media audiences, emphasizing the challenges and consequences of public disputes in the age of online connectivity.
