Barbz Aren't Happy Nicki Minaj Changed Their Name To "The Kingdom"

R-I-P B-A-R-B-Z.

...But the "Barbz" nickname formed organically between Nicki and her fans, as she explained to MTV back in 2010:

I have a Nicktionary, it's my own little terms and phrases, and one day I said, instead of saying "bye" I said "It's Barbie bitch." I could just imagine a Barbie becoming like a Chuckee and you think it's all cute but the head starts spinning or something crazy and the kids just took that and ran with it.

In a deadass tweet written to the media on Monday morning, Nicki has announced her fanbase will now be called "#TheKINGDOM:"

Dear media: they're no longer called BARBZ. They're called #TheKINGDOM thank you for coming. Grab some coffee on your way out. 🦋

And it seems like the former-Barbz are NOT having it:

Some are asking for a formal vote:

@NICKIMINAJ EXCUSE ME CAN WE VOTE FOR THIS

Some are questioning the creative behind this decision:

@NICKIMINAJ Sis who approved this?

And some are refusing to call themselves anything but a Barb.

I guess she only breast feeds #TheKINGDOM now. ☕

i only breast feed the barbz. U NOT A BARBIE ITS #NUNAYAFUCKINBEEZWAX
