While supporting the release of A$AP Rocky, the "MEGATRON" rapper is facing backlash for a tweet she wrote documenting a previous experience with police in Jamaica following a performance.

Popular hip hop star, Nicki Minaj has canceled her scheduled performance in Saudi Arabia next week.

Minaj was initially booked to headline the concert on July 18, but backed out to support the human rights struggle in the middle east country, where gender segregation is still enforced in many restaurants and institutions.

She narrated how she was almost sent to prison during a show in Jamaica because she forgot to censor some swear words in her songs.

"I performed in Jamaica before (and) when I got off stage I was surrounded by police with guns drawn", Minaj said in a tweet. They were ready 2 take me to jail b/c they said I forgot to bleep a couple curses....

"I believe it is important for me to make clear my support for the rights of women, the LGBTQ community and freedom of expression".

Saudi Arabia is known for its regressive and misogynistic treatment of women and girls.

However, a number of fans were left confused by Minaj's tweet.

Nicki then posted another tweet attempting to clarify her comments.The rapstress, who has claimed to have "love" for Jamaica, previously resided in Trinidad and Tobago prior to her move to NY, and was born to Trinidadian parents.

"Ummm for the ppl in the back, I wasn't saying Jamaica doesn't have women's rights", Minaj said in an additional tweet. "I gave an example of what happened in JA to explain how easy it would be to do one thing wrong in Saudi Arabia because I'm not aware of every single rule and be locked up".
