Obviously I don’t blame Nikki Minaj, but some of her fans are absolutely insane.
Ever since Jon Favreau’s Iron Man back in 2008, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has given fans a wealth of blockbusters to enjoy.
Efforts like Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame are destined to go down in cinematic history and hopes are high for the future of the franchise.
Over on TV, audiences were recently treated to shows like WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but Marvel fans are currently waiting for Phase Four to roar onto the big screen.
We now have a trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, based on the Marvel Comics character Shang-Chi. It’s set to be the 25th movie instalment of the MCU and was directed by Destin Daniel Cretton.
Simu Liu stars in the titular role and there has recently been a stir on social media. So, let’s get the Shang-Chi “cancelled” tweets explained.
Some fans of musical icon Nicki Minaj have hit out at the 32-year-old Canadian actor Simu Liu after finding a tweet he wrote about the singer in 2012.
Since the tweet re-emerged, some have criticised the actor while others have leapt to his and the 2021 film’s defence.
One recently tweeted: “wtf is wrong with this world. the new @shangchi trailer drops and what do people do, ie niki fans go after the main character all because he made a joke about nicki minaj… they went through his timeline to find it and to get him cancelled. Is this really what people are doing?”
