Nicki Minaj has defended Jesy Nelson against claims of "blackfishing" in her lat


Nicki Minaj has defended Jesy Nelson against claims of “blackfishing” in her latest music video, Boyz.

Blackfishing is a word used to accuse someone of pretending to be black or mixed-race.

Nicki, who features on the song, said on Instagram: “Y’all gotta stop.”

She added on Twitter: “If you know someone has been suicidal from bullying in the past, why try to get a bunch of people to bully them again about something else?”

In the video, Jesy is heavily tanned and her hair is styled with wigs and braids. She wears basketball shorts and gold teeth, and sings about wanting a boy who’s “so hood, so good, so damn taboo”.

Some people say it is wrong for white people to profit from imitating stereotypically black characteristics – when black people themselves have been held back for having the very same characteristics.
