Some of Nicki Minaj's Barbz recently exposed a BET employee who tweeted a rude comment about the rapper from the company's account. Fans released the woman's address, social media accounts and want her fired. This caused quite the stir and Minaj announced she will no longer perform at the upcoming BET Experience concert, according to Rap-Up.
"Doxing is a sloppy form of justice that often hurts many beyond the intended target," says Jared Colton, who teaches about ethics and technology at Utah State University. "It punishes their families and even people who look like them or have similar names." Once you strip away the intentions, in other words, both sides are sharing the same swampy low ground.
