On the air this afternoon, Minaj called the dust-up "mortifying and so humiliating." Minaj also addressed Cardi's claim that she had brought her newborn daughter, Kulture, into the dispute, saying the following:
The other night I was part of something so mortifying and so humiliating to go through in front of a bunch upper echelon... people who have their life together. The way they passed by looking at this disgusting commotion. I was mortified. I was in a Gaultier gown — off the motherfucking runway — and I could not believe how humiliated it all felt because we... made ourselves look — and Imma get back, but before I go, I wanna say that I would never discuss anyone's child. And it's so sad for someone to pin that on me because I'm the bad guy and they're gonna believe them.... I would never talk about someone's child or parenting.... It's so crazy to me that people always need to make Onika the bad guy. If you're right in whatever you're doing... just speak your truth.
I just want people to know that Onika Tanya Maraj has never, will never... speak ill on anyone's child. I am not a clown. That's clown shit. The other thing is to tell the world something just because you look fucking dumb. You knew that when that footage came out, you was about to look fucking dumb, so your publicist — also looking fucking dumb... — they hurried up and put out a statement. I'm such a ill-ass bitch I didn't even feel the need to defend myself that night.
Last month, Minaj suggested that Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner's daughter Stormi was partially responsible for the rapper's Astroworld LP bumping her Queen album to the second spot on the Billboard chart.
Minaj also alleged that Cardi "has built her career off of sympathy and payola" before continuing:
The world gave you a blessing, of a beautiful bundle of joy, and the only thing on your mind after you [gave birth was to attack people and to stop their bags.... And you wanna let your publicist write something about stopping bags? Do you know what it is to sit in your room for hours and days at a time writing raps? You came into my fucking culture! I never had a DJ to play my fucking songs.
This is about, Get this woman some fucking help. This woman is at the best stage of her career and she's throwing bottles and shoes?... You n****s don't care until somebody's fucking dead.... This shit ain't fucking funny. You put your hands on certain people, you gonna die. Period.
Minaj also said, "I'm not one of these bitches in the strip club or on a reality show. My money is very fucking long too."
Lately, Minaj cancelled a North American tour alongside Future and controversial rapper 6ix9ine.
