This “Ellen” Skit Spoofing Nicki Minaj Is Horrifically Offensive

On Monday’s “Ellen,” America’s favorite dancing lesbian talk show host aired an “exclusive” clip of Nicki Minaj’s upcoming ABC Family show, based on her childhood growing up in Queens. The clip was introduced by this shot of Minaj, from her “Anaconda” video.


Cool choice, Ellen. It’s not like there are hundreds of other pictures of Nicki Minaj not on all fours. That was followed up by Ellen’s “exclusive clip.” It’s a particularly troublesome bit of minstrelsy masquerading as satire.

It’s 2015. Who the hell greenlit this?
