Social media once again has backfired for a celebrity. And this time it's Nicki Minaj. The rapper posted a video to Instagram of a "conversation" she was having with a woman.

In the short clip, the rapper tells the woman, "Come here," and laughs at her. But the woman is not to be laughed at. According to several Miami locals who commented on Minaj's video, the woman is mentally ill and well known in the area because of her mental-health issues.

Several commenters on Minaj's Instagram post questioned why she would even think the video was funny. And the Miami division of the National Alliance on Mental Illness issued a statement: "Nobody would make fun of a cancer patient, and mental illness is an illness like any other."
