Nicki Minaj cancelled one of her concerts in Bordeaux, France, last minute and her fans were pissed. The reason was cited as the inability to accomodate the tour's needs. Billboard reports that Minaj's European tour stop at the Arkea Arena in the city was canceled due to technical issues.
Nicki later posted a video on her Instagram attempting to explain the situation and also posted a statement revealing that she was actually backstage with Juice Wrld ready to perform before the venue reportedly pulled the show. "I love performing for my fans".
According to TMZ, some fans inside the arena reacted by chanting "Cardi B, Cardi B!", another female rapper often pit against Minaj. While it's never nice to hear that the show you're about to watch has been cancelled, Wendy Williams believes that the folks chanting Cardi B's name after the announcement was made were in the wrong.
"And they didn't tell us until three hours before the show as opposed to when we did soundcheck, they said it was fine". I want to tell you guys that I love you dearly and I really hope to make it up to you very soon.
She owed her fans an explanation and took to Twitter and Instagram to speak on the issue.More news: Apple Sets March 25 to Announce Its Next Big Thing

She and Juice WRLD were scheduled to open the event.
Minaj apologized in an Instagram video, citing technical reasons - the same reason she gave for canceling a February 22 show in Bratislava, Slovakia. "You need to pick a side", Cardi said in response to Minaj's radio episode. "What for? When they're already in the building, dressed, etc", the star wrote.
During her talk show, the host defended Minaj against all the backlash coming her way.
Minaj will perform Monday in London, England.
