Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness hits out at Nicki Minaj for Russian Harper’s Bazaar cover

Nicki Minaj pulls out of Saudi Arabia concert

Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness has hit out at Nicki Minaj following her Harper’s Bazaar cover.

The 35-year-old singer has graced the August issue of the fashion mag, but the pro groomer, 31, has tweeted his anger at what he feels should have been a “hard pass.”

Posting a picture of the cover, the Netflix favourite wrote: “Russia has anti LGBTQIA propaganda laws, Chechnya supported by Russia tortures it’s LGBTQIA citizens, & w your LGBTQ+ fans you can’t even speak to that in this interview bc it’s illegal in Russia, what’s good @NICKIMINAJ , this should’ve been a hard pass.”

However, the post divided fans.

Some applauded Van Ness, with one follower leading the way, responding: “A strong gay voice calling out this hypocrisy and poor judgments by those who ally themselves to LGBTQ+ is so [needed] and overdue.”

But many others were riled at his attack on Minaj.

One wrote: “The woman literally logs to promote her new magazine shoot, and the first thing y’all do is attack her over some anti-LGBTQ+ drama with Russia that has absolutely nothing to do with her.”

A second added: “You all are obsessed with trying to tear Nicki Minaj down, & it’s very creepy + disturbing.”
