Nicki Minaj fans erupted in anger at Chrissy Teigen on Friday, mistakenly believing the supermodel had attacked the rapper.

Here’s what appears to have happened.

On Thursday, Minaj debuted the booty-full cover art for “Anaconda.”

When she got criticism for the provocative pose, Minaj pointed out the double standard by posting this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover, which features Teigen (along with Lily Aldridge and Nina Agdal) displaying her butt.

Minaj observed of the SI cover, “Angelic. Acceptable. Lol.”

It was a perfectly fair point about hypocritical media coverage.

Teigen then retweeted Minaj’s message, joking, “I WILL TAKE ACCEPTABLE.”

It seemed as though the supermodel was making a mild, self-deprecating comment about herself, joking that she’s not “angelic.”

She later further explained that she was flattered that Minaj called her butt “acceptable,” since Teigen is always joking about how flat it is.

But many of Minaj’s fans did not take it that way — and went berserk, apparently believing that Teigen had thrown shade at the performer.

The stunned supermodel took to Twitter again to share some of the backlash (warning: explicit):

Teigen just can’t seem to escape Twitter drama.
