Nicki Minaj, the chart-topping rapper and global sensation, is not one to shy away from controversy. But her recent threat to fire her tour DJ, DJ Boof, has fans buzzing. The reason? Boof’s audacious move of signing a fan’s chest during a tour stop in Amsterdam.

The infamous sharpie moment

A candid photo circulating on the internet captures DJ Boof in action. Sharpie in hand, he grins mischievously as he scribbles his signature across a female fan’s chest. The caption accompanying the image reads,

"I’m really famous. They asked me to sign their boobs."

While some fans found it amusing, Nicki Minaj was less than thrilled.

Nicki’s swift response

Taking to X (formerly known as Twitter), Nicki Minaj issued a stern warning to DJ Boof:

"I promise I’ll fire him if I EVAHHHHH see this again. Df. Whether she’s joking or not remains unclear, but one thing is certain—Nicki doesn’t want her DJ crossing certain boundaries."

The stressful weekend

Nicki’s frustration may stem from a recent run-in with Amsterdam police. During a live stream, she found herself under arrest, although she eventually escaped with just a fine. The incident forced her to cancel a show in Manchester, leaving her none too pleased with how the Dutch authorities treated her. Fans at her Birmingham concert heard her vow to fight tooth and nail against the cops in Holland.

The controversial incident has ignited a passionate debate among fans and critics alike. While some argue that the fan willingly participated in the act and it should be viewed as harmless fun, others argue that it sets a dangerous precedent and opens the door to potential misconduct in the future. This incident has sparked conversations about boundaries, consent, and the responsibility of artists and their teams to ensure a safe and respectful environment for their fans.

As Nicki Minaj’s world tour continues, DJ Boof might want to keep his pen in check. Whether he’ll heed her warning or push the envelope further remains to be seen. One thing’s for sure—the sharpie incident has added an unexpected twist to the Pink Friday 2 tour.
