After Nicki Minaj got some guff over the Halloween weekend due to a video that many interpreted as showing her making fun of a disabled person, she took to Twitter to respond on Sunday. She claimed it was her friend in a mobility scooter -- not a handicapped stranger, as was widely interpreted.

The video has since been taken down but lives on via The Daily News, which you can watch below. In it, Minaj is in Las Vegas dressed as a fairy princess, laughing while walking down a hallway. She points her magic wand at a person in scooter and says, "Walk! I command you to walk," cracking up. 

Following a report from Perez Hilton, Minaj fired back on Twitter, calling it a plea for attention and saying she knew the person in the scooter -- suggesting he or she was not disabled at all.
