Nicki Minaj Blows Hot On Instagram For Removing ‘Likes’

Some days ago, Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri announced that they were test-hiding the “likes” feature for U.S. users next week. But that didn’t sit well with Nicki Minaj.

The announcement was just after Kim Kardashian, one of the most popular stars on the social media, expressed her support for the removal of the “like” tab.




She believed it could be beneficial for people’s mental health.

“As far as mental health, I think taking the likes away and taking that aspect away from Instagram would be really beneficial for people,” she revealed at New York Times’ DealBrook Conference at the Time Warner Center.

Nicki Minaj on the other hand went on IG Live to let her fans know how upset she was. The Megatron suggested that maybe IG intention was not so good after all since it would reduce some power from the users.

“So basically no, Instagram is going to take everyone’s likes simply because … they don’t want you to go off on the side, forming all sorts of businesses and being able to say, you know, ‘I get this amount of likes’ and charging brands.”

“They want you to have to pay them,” she continued. “See, if you pay them, then that’s why we have all these sponsored Instagram posts and that’s why we changed up not having Instagram posts in chronological order. Remember, they did that first. So they had to shuffle it real quick to let you know you ain’t the boss,” she lamented.

“So you guys that build your businesses by saying, ‘Hey, this is the amount of likes I get.’ Now these companies will have to go,” she went on. “Instead of going to you, they will have to go and pay Instagram so they can have in a post that says sponsored. They can have advertisement and they’re paying for that now, instead of to you, to Instagram.”

Nicki Minaj also took to twitter, announcing that she would ditch the photo-sharing social media and asked her followers what online platform they would recommend to her.

“I’m not posting on IG after this week cuz they removing the likes,” the female rapper told her online admirers. She added, “Hmmmm what should I get into now?” She ended with a quip, “Think of all the time I’ll have with my new life.”
