Backlash Over Nicki Minaj’s Bill Cosby Halloween Costume Post
Minaj reposted the image, which features a man dressed as woman who is being hauled away by a blow-up doll dressed as Bill Cosby. It also shows the doll appearing to put drugs in the woman’s drink, in a nod to the claims made by victims who say the comedian drugged them before assaulting them.
“Our generation is so desensitized,” Minaj captioned the photo on Saturday, and many of the superstar’s fans were quick to criticize the post. Some branded the image “disgusting” and one user wrote, “This isn’t what Halloween is about.” A representative for Minaj has yet to comment on the controversy.
