#GiuseppeWhatsGood: Nicki Minaj calls out Giuseppe Zanotti for 'disrespect'

"I met #GiuseppeZanotti years ago", she added.

"Within minutes, #GiuseppeWhatsGood was trending worldwide on Twitter and fans began commenting "Run Nicki her check" and "#GiuseppeWhatsGood" on the brand's Instagram. "At which time, he told me I inspired him to design a sneaker in my honor", she wrote.

"Just go on Google, you'll see all the different pairs he's named after me". Lil black girl can inspire u but ain't worth a collection my n**?' Zanotti often works with Minaj to create one of a kind shoes for the superstar/rapper.

Yep, earlier this morning, Minaj took to her Instagram and Twitter to level claims of "racism and disrespect" at the designer after his reps reportedly refused to talk about a collaboration. He named a shoe design after Nicki, and she subsequently wore her namesake shoes on the cover of a magazine.

In the past, Nicki Minaj has earned a reputation for engaging in feuds on such an epic scale that they have become internet memes, but, as People reports, the rapper has proven with her latest Twitter rants that her sharp wit isn't limited to her colleagues in the rap and music industries.

"Dear @giuseppezanottidesign #RunMeMyCHECK your PR must've fell & bumped their head when they told my agency they weren't discussing anything with us". I'm giving you 24 hours.

She then took to social media to rally her fans to share the hashtags #GiuseppeWhatsGood and #RunMeMyCHECK to get the brand's attention. "The racism & disrespect won't (be) tolerated".
