Nicki Minaj has accused Giuseppe Zanotti of racism after the designer failed to connect with her over a artists capsule collection with his shoes. NIcki tweeted, “This is wonderful. #GiuseppeZanotti seems to think it’s ok to name his sneakers after me but his PR says they won’t take our call. Lol. I met
#GiuseppeZanotti years ago. At which time, he told me I inspired him to design a sneaker in my honor. Wore them on the cover of Cosmo”
A furious Nicki added, “Recently when he gave other artists capsule collections, my agency reached out and was told they’re not taking our call. Just go on google, you’ll see all the different pairs he’s named after me. Lil black girl can inspire u but ain’t worth a collection my nig?
#RunMeMyCHECK #GiuseppeWhatsGood I got time today. barbz trend this cuz he gon learn today. The racism & disrespect won’t b tolerated.” Giuseppe currently has a line with Jennifer Lopez that debuted just last week.
That’s quite a twitter beef, but I need to ask…why does she think it’s race related? I need more facts!
