Nicki Minaj took to Twitter this morning to speak out against Giuseppe Zanotti for use of her name and "disrespect".
Through a series of tweets she explains that although Zanotti has admitted to being inspired by her during a brief meeting of theirs, her team hasn't been able to get in touch with the brand concerning several pairs of shoes that have been named after her. The 34-year-old since started retweeting memes about her feud baring the same hashtag.
"#GiuseppeZanotti seems to think it's ok to name his sneakers after me but his PR says they won't take our call".

USA raid kills 3 Al-Qaeda leaders in Yemen
The raid took place Saturday in an area of Yemen where Al-Qaeda has thrived since the start of the Yemeni civil war in 2015. Central Command reported the first counterterror operation carried out under approval by President Trump.
In the past, Minaj has been an avid fan of the shoe brand, name-dropping it in verses for songs like "Monster" ("Monster Giuseppe heel that's the monster shoe.") and "Pound The Alarm" in which she references the styles named after her rapping, "Giuseppe Zanotti, my own sneaker". Lil black girl can inspire u but ain't worth a collection my n**?' She responded by taking a screenshot of her Zanotti shoe collection's ad and captioning the Instagram share with a new ultimatum. The rapper said the designer once told her she inspired him to create a sneaker in her honor, but when she asked him to partner with her on something bigger, she was turned away. She stops short of accusing the designer brand of racism, saying they disrespect her because they are not even taking her calls.
And then the star wrote: 'Don't care about the money. "Give some money to charity in my name or something".
