Nicki Minaj Says She's 'Mortified' Over Cardi B Brawl in New York

Playing Nicki Minaj on Confrontation With Cardi B: ‘I Was Mortified’

Nicki Minaj says the shocking melee with Cardi B at a New York Fashion Week event this past weekend is "mortifying and humiliating."

"I could not believe how humiliated we made ourselves look,” the rapper said on her Beats 1 radio show, “Queen Radio."

The incident occurred Friday night at Harper’s Bazaar Icons party at the Plaza Hotel when Cardi B appeared to go after the “Chun-Li” rapper and at one point hurled a shoe.

"You're angry and you're sad," Minaj said of Cardi B. "This is not funny. Get this woman some f***ing help. This woman's at the highest point in her career and she's throwing shoes?"

As fashion week shows were held in New York, Minaj addressed the report that the dust-up erupted because she said something negative about the “Bodak Yellow” rapper’s mothering skills.

"I would never ridicule anyone's child," Minaj said. "[It's] so sad for someone to pin that on somebody. I would never talk about anyone's child or parenting. These lies are ridiculous."

Minaj did, however, take shots at Cardi B for the altercation.

"You put your hands on certain people, you gonna die," she said. "Period."

The fallout has reached designer Tom Ford, who’s taking heat for naming a blue lipstick after Cardi B. It sold out Monday, about 24 hours after it hit the shelves.

“I don't care who was in the wrong, Cardi B tried to physically assault another woman and she shouldn't be rewarded for exhibiting violent, ILLEGAL and frankly unacceptable behavior," one tweet read.

Tom Ford has not commented on the matter.
