Trick Daddy felt the fury of another fan group — the Barbz — after attempting to drag Nicki Minaj’s loyal base into his controversial comments about Beyoncé and JAY-Z. In a since-deleted Instagram post on Tuesday (June 22), the “Nann Ni**a” rapper wrote “Barbz>” seemingly trying to get the diehard fan group on his side.
The move backfired, though, as Minaj’s fans quickly shared their support for Bey and decried Trick’s comments about the Grammy Award-winning singer.
“Trick Daddy really said ‘Barbz>’ like we gonna be on his side, we on beyhive side too foh,” one fan wrote on Twitter.
“Not Trick Daddy trying to get Da Barbz and Beyhive to go at it. Beyoncé, Nicki and Rihanna all share the same fans,” another added.
“Why Trick Daddy acting like the Barbz and Hive ain’t cousins,” a third fan wrote.
As reported by REVOLT, Trick Daddy came under fire yesterday after a Clubhouse recording of him claiming Beyoncé “don’t write music and barely can sing her motherfuckin’ self” went viral. He also criticized her husband JAY-Z, saying, “Beyoncé is to R&B what JAY-Z is to New York. That’s why they together. JAY-Z ain’t never won the greatest rapper alive. Whoever put him on a level like that?”
In response, Bey’s loyal fanbase went on a virtual warpath, leaving negative reviews for Trick’s Miami restaurant, Sunday’s Eatery.
“Disgusting food. Seriously though. The service was so subpar. Definitely do not recommend this restaurant, they can’t even sing,” one person wrote.
“The food was undercooked but tasted overcook the restaurant smelled like wet dog, but there was a delightful bee’s nest outside waiting,” another fan added.
Trina, a longtime collaborator of Trick’s, also dissociated herself from the 46-year-old’s comments on Tuesday. On Instagram, the “Receipts” rapper posted a montage of Beyoncé’s performances, some of which featured Hov, and wrote, “ALL day, Everyday… The Queen.”
Despite the backlash, Trick stood by his comments during an appearance on his 99Jamz radio show, saying, “That’s my opinion. I’ve said many times on the radio that they’re wonderful businesspeople. Jigga made a lot of money, he got a whole lotta money. But did I say anything disrespectful? No. Did I call them out they names? No, I didn’t.”
