Earlier this week, footage from an incident involving Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj surfaced on the internet during auditions for American Idol. The shows two newest judges got into it and footage shows Nicki yelling at the multiple-time Grammy winner.

TMZ reports that Carey spoke with Barbara Walters and confirmed that Minaj said that “if I had a gun I would shoot the b-tch.” Walters reportedly addressed the subject earlier today on The View. A short while ago, Minaj took to her Twitter account to address the situation.

“Hey yAll. Lets just say nicki said smthn about a gun. ppl will believe it cuz she’s a black rapper. Lmao I’ll then hit up Barbara n milk it,” she tweeted. “Ironically no camera or mic heard the gun comment tho. Lol @ the struggle. Not even the producers believed u. Say no to violence barbz. Y~oe”

She ended her twitter rant by insinuating that the producers favoring her as their best judge since Simon is what has led to this blowup.
