Nicki Minaj recently shut down her Twitter account after suggesting that she was tired of dealing with fan complaints. Many are now questioning how long the star's Twitter hiatus will last, with some eager for her return and others happy that she's off.
Despite her recent success with the release of her latest album "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded," Nicki Minaj doesn't appear to be getting a lot of love from her fans. The singer Tweeted on Sunday that she could no longer take her fans, and then proceeded to shut down her Twitter in addition to one of her fan sites.
"Like seriously, its but so much a person can take. Good f******* bye," Minaj wrote on Twitter before shutting the site down.
The comments are a result of a Twitter "war" that broke out over leaked music on her fan site NickiDaily.com.
Minaj also made some harsh comments about her father Omar Miraj, which some fans had rebuked the star for. Minaj's father later said that he was devastated by his daughter's "temper."
"He could not believe his ears when the 29-year-old appeared on ABC's Nightline show and described him as a drug addict and alcoholic who often threatened to kill her mother Nina, and once even burned down their house," Mail Online reported.
"'I wanted to kill him. I used to wish he was dead," the star told ABC. "We were afraid for my mother's life because whenever he would have a real bad outburst he would threaten to kill her."
Some fans defended Minaj, and suggested that she had every right to express her emotions.
"Nicki, you should say what you want. People may not like it, but you're strong enough to handle it," Jenny said on the Yahoo blog. "You have a right to feel and say what you want especially when it's about issues with your father. There's enough secrecy, domestic abusers need to be called out."
"She should be able to say what she wants..nobody knows what she went through and how she felt..." Ashley added.
Others were far less supportive.
"Like seriously, she's a 3rd rate 'singer' that uses gimmicks. No great loss of some deep debates here. She can have her tantrums in private now," Jason Sheffield wrote.
Minaj is not the only one to back out of the pressure of Twitter. Kanye West, Demi Lovato, and Lily Allen amongst other celebrities, have also taken Twitter breaks from over demanding fans.
