AceShowbiz - Coi Leray is grateful for Nicki Minaj's words of encouragement. Having received support from the latter following backlash over her recent live performance, the "No More Parties" raptress took to social media to thank the "Starships" hitmaker.
Coi quote-retweeted Nicki's post on Twitter and raved, "Thank you so much for this. This means everything and more to me. Wow. I'm speechless." The 24-year-old further wrote, "You just gave me so much more hope. Thank you again."
In the original message, Nicki told Coi, "Chin up. Always remember this, when black ppl not fkn w|you #TheyWillBoo." She then added, "Those ppl were on their feet. That means they may not have known the song, but they were interested in getting to know more - so they were observing u. Charge it to the game & move on."
This came after a clip of Coi's Saturday, May 29 performance at the H-Town Memorial Day Mayhem event at the Toyota Center in Houston surfaced online. In the 14-second footage, the audience was seen non-responsive while watching her rapping on the stage. The clip has prompted the femcee facing criticisms from many.
The "Big Purr" raptress later responded to the trolls by letting out a series of tweets. "The love use to outweigh the hate but now the hate outweigh the love and it's slowing destroying me," she penned. "Feel like y'all tryna kill me. That's why I stay out the way gotta make sure I keep my distance. Y'all haters are in my life for a reason, we gon have to just deal with eachoter (sic). In with whatever smoke."
Luckily, many of Coi's famous friends showered her with love. One in particular was Asian Doll (Asian Da Brat) who noted, "Awwww I love how we all had @coi_leray back today after seeing her so down even Nicki gave her her flowers & honestly that makes me so happy to see us defending & uplifting eachother especially when we call eachother 'friends.' "
Polo G, meanwhile, tweeted, "That's always how it b when u 1st come in Compared to when u really blow u gotta block that shit out & keep goin crazy u got it." Rubi Rose chimed in, "Y'all gone stop playing with coi like she isn't a STAR."
