Twitter Reacts after Trina's IG Live Session about Nicki Minaj Drama
Twitter users are reacting after Trina’s Instagram Live session about her alleged feud with fellow rapper Nicki Minaj. Trina’s disclosure that there was no bad blood between her and Nicki had Twitter buzzing immediately.
The week started with speculations of beef between Trina and Nicki, sparking reactions from fans of both rappers.
HOW THE RUMOR STARTED
Both sides traded accusations and other negative words until Wednesday when the “Told Y'all” rapper finally addressed the situation in an Instagram Live session.
The rumors started after the head of A&R at Trina’s Rockstarr Music Group label, Reginald Saunders, accused Nicki of being a “deceiver” and a “manipulator.”
Saunders’ grouse with the “Anaconda” rapper stemmed from the fact that she allegedly did not promote “BAPS,” a track on Trina’s June 2019 album where she featured Nicki.
By the time Trina finally decided to shut down the rumors on Wednesday, the Twitter back-and-forth had degenerated into a messy situation, with some fans going as far as dragging in another female rapper Cardi B.
Nicki and Cardi are known not to be the best of friends and even had that infamous fight last September. Fans of both rappers have been at loggerheads since then, so when the Trina-Nicki rumors surfaced, Cardi fans naturally picked a side.
”I have my own schedule and i also have to worry about what makes not only sense/cents but dollars. And its not fair that people don’t understand that. I would never have some1 from my team disrespect somebody that has been nothing but real to me”Nicki Minaj to Trina #queenradio pic.twitter.com/qKy1twcNWc— BallerAlert (@balleralert) August 12, 2019
Things took a different turn after Trina took the blame for the mess and insisted that there is no bad blood between her and Nicki.
“There is no beef between me and Nicki Minaj. There will be no disrespect for Nicki Minaj or nobody else that’s on my album,” she said. “I don't play those games at all. Period. Everybody knows that.”
SOCIAL MEDIA GOES WILD
The “Pull Over” rapper’s comments sparked reactions from Twitter users, most of who were impressed by her maturity and humility.
“Half the Internet waited for Trina to get online to drag Nicki Minaj based on a rumor... and lost. ‘There is no beef with Nicki Minaj.’ ya'll really hate that girl lol”

There was also an abundance of memes and GIFs. “Y’all thought Trina was about to get on live and join the Nicki Minaj Hate Train,” a Twitter user wrote alongside a clip of a girl laughing mockingly.
Another user suggested that Nicki fans (called the Barbs) had been ready to call out Trina before they heard her comments on the Live session. The tweeter shared a video of a woman using a computer and captioned it:
“Barbs deleting drafts after Trina’s live.”
A few things to take away from Trina live last night— Tucson Vanloo (@tj_vanloo) August 15, 2019
1) a certain fan base needs to apologize to her (barbz you know what you did)
2) the OTHER fan base foaming at the mouth at the prospect of drama is just as bad because you clearly only weaponize female rap unity pic.twitter.com/zhplHgtxsU
“BardiGang When Trina Said ‘There’s is no Beef between Me and Nicki Minaj,’” tweeted another with the GIF of a much-younger Denzel Washington hitting the table in disappointment.
Nicki is yet to react to Trina’s take on the feud rumors, but her fans seem to have it covered.
