The social media influencer also said she believed Minaj is at fault, insinuating that the artist encourages said behavior because of the way she interacts with her fans.

“Nicki is clearly a horrible person. Negativity sticks to him like glue. Idk if we’ve seen that before.
Not long ago Foster began to receive a kind of backlash that she slowly realized was more than the norm. Speaking on the subject, she said:
“It was normal, boring stuff where I was like ‘OK, block it and move on… The messages got more threatening and dark, and then it started to be ‘We’re going to find you’. I’m going to kidnap you, I hope you get raped.'”
Apparently, the Youtube star is a Harvard grad who once used her platform for women’s empowerment and even praised her once. Minaj. However, now that his online presence has shifted to entertainment commentary, it appears his online interactions have been increasingly hostile, especially with the “Barbz”. The super fan group was recently accused of harassing another of their idol’s critics who is currently being sued by the rapper.
Foster shared messages of harassment. She claims a Nicky fan shared his number online with the intention of sending him massive amounts of hate messages.
Some of the disturbing posts allege that random strangers on the internet know where Foster lives and threatened to kidnap her. One user even went so far as to threaten her family.

She said:
“Someone sent me screenshots of ‘I’ll find the kids’ address’ and ‘I don’t care’ and ‘They’ll be collateral damage'”
Whereas Foster would continue to build a case for the court, she expressed that she believed Minaj is partly responsible. The YouTuber noted the posts that the “Super Freaky Girl” artist liked on Twitter, stating that she thinks the actions performed by the “Barbz” are simply to get the attention of super stars. She said:
“The Barbz agree that the harder they go for her – the more virulent the nastiness – there are more opportunities for her to recognize them,” he added.
Reports indicate that Foster plans to gather evidence in the form of “phone numbers, Twitter handles and IP addresses” and begin filing a lawsuit as early as next week. However, the report also notes that Minaj, at this time, is clear of any fault in the prosecution.
