Lots of people have commented on the post, calling it “disappointing” and “insensitive.” One user wrote, “Wow, you made yourself look like a complete asshole. Congrats.”

Other commenters claim Minaj probably didn’t know. Others want to know how people are so sure the woman suffers from mental illness at all. Either way, the woman was upset and clearly didn’t want to be recorded.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness isn’t pleased with Minaj and spoke to TMZ, saying “Nobody would make fun of a cancer patient, and mental illness is an illness like any other.”
