LOOSE Women host Charlene White has branded Jesy Nelson's livestream with Nicki Minaj "hugely embarrassing".
More than 100,000 fans tuned in to see rapper Nicki, 38, tear into Little Mix, and new mum Leigh-Anne Pinnock in particular, amid a "blackfishing" row.
The Super Bass star, 38, called Leigh-Anne a "jealous clown" after influencer NoHun leaked alleged messages from the singer criticising Jesy for using black culture to boost her solo debut.
Commenting on Twitter, Charlene wrote: "*That* IG live is just… wow. Hugely embarrassing."
She wasn't the only one with that opinion, as music fans watched on in disbelief as the Trinidadian star ripped into the Brit group while Jesy nodded along.
Some pointed out the hypocrisy of Nicki preaching about respecting mental health while simultaneously publicly slamming someone.
One fan wrote: "this is so embarrassing, how are you going to defend a person like jesy and preach about mental health when u have harassed people yourself??"
Another said: "Jesy Nelson and @NICKIMINAJ stop embarrassing yourselves like this."
Posting on her Instagram story, Nicki wrote ahead of the Insta Live: "Jesy, we got all these jelly btchs actin real messy" – and she did not hold back as the evening went on.
Furiously lashing out at Leigh-Anne, Nicki slammed the singer for "waiting until Jesy had parted" from Little Mix before speaking out – claiming that she was "jealous and insecure".
She ranted: "When you try to bring someone down because you see them continuing to try and pursue their careers, you are a f***ing clown. And let me tell you, there's a lot of women out here in the US that tan and get bigger lips.
"As long as you're not hurting anyone you should be able to embrace your body, your make-up."
With Jesy nodding along, Nicki continued: "If you've ever done business with someone then you send a text message when they try and do something else, trying to end them – you've already ended your f***ing self. You won't go anywhere because your heart ain't right."
Discussing "hate trains" of people wanting to end Jesy's career, she continued: "What we won't have is putting out text messages to try and ruin someone, and telling people and influencers to talk badly about this girl.
"Unless someone is pretending they're a race they're not and lying, sweetheart, take them text messages and shove them up your f***ing a** because when you do clown s**t I have to speak to you and talk to you like you're a clown.
"You don't have to try and ruin anyone – you're in this woman's group and don't talk about this s**t for 10 years and now you've seen she has a video coming with Diddy? Print those text messages out and shove them up your a**.
"If you want a solo career, just say that – you can go out and do your own music, you don't have to attack someone else. It screams insecurity, you're jealous – only jealous people do things like this, and now you look like a big, jealous Bozo."
Jesy did not address the Leigh-Anne situation directly, but laughed as Nicki ranted, and later thanked her for defending her.
She also insisted that she didn't mean to offend anybody – and her tan and curls are completely natural.
