The “Barbz” are known to be one of the fiercest and loyalest fanbases out there.
If you come for their queen, Nicki Minaj, they will come together like Voltron and protect her. Republican candidate DeAnna Lorraine tweeted and deleted: “Nicki Minaj has just had a child. Poor kid,” shortly after TMZ broke the news.
When the “Barbz” found out they were hot mad.
So much so, when Lorraine went live on Periscope, with her 2020 Election Countdown show Minaj fans rang in to cuss her out.
The politician received a call from “Jamal from California” who bluntly told her “you better not f***ing play with the ‘Barbz.” Her comment section was also full with fans dissing her and encouraging each other to call her.

#PressPlay: Welp, y’all know the #Barbz don’t play about Mrs. Petty, and #DeannaLorraine learned today! After she allegedly posted and deleted a tweet about #NickiMinaj and her child, Nicki’s fan base quickly put her in her place during the 2020 presidential election countdown 😩 (SWIPE)
Lorraine isn’t the only Republican to call out Nicki Minaj’s new baby. Former Lehigh County Commissioner, Dean Browning, tweeted:
“Nicki Minaj has given birth to a child today. If it is a girl, I pray it does not turn out like her mother. If it is a boy, I pray it does not turn out like his father. Bless that child. They will need a lot of moral guidance.”
The “Barbz” have responded by leaking his address and phone number. Nicki Minaj reportedly welcomed her first child with her 42-year-old husband on Wednesday.
According to the report from TMZ, the “Anaconda” rapper gave birth in Los Angeles.
The site shared that the gender of the child and the name have not yet been made available.
The 37-year-old star announced in late July she was “preggers” on Instagram.
She shared many photos of her cradling her baby bump for her 123 million followers.
In the post, Nicki cradled her full baby belly while dolled up wearing a curly yellow wig, embellished bikini, and sparkling platform heels, writing: “#Preggers” adding a yellow heart emoji.”
Nicki shared a more introspective caption in another post, writing: “Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes.”
Rumors that the rapper was expecting have been swirling ever since she and music exec Petty wed in 2019.
Prior to their union, Nicki shocked fans by announcing she was retiring from music to start a family.
‘I’ve decided to retire & have my family. I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me … Love you for LIFE,” she tweeted in September of last year.
She later walked back her statement while responding to a fan’s tweet.
‘I’m still right here. Still madly in love with you guys & you know that. In hindsight, this should’ve been a Queen Radio discussion & it will be. I promise u guys will be happy. No guests, just us talking about everything. The tweet was abrupt & insensitive, I apologize babe.’
