Prior to announcing her retirement, the 'MEGATRON' rapper appeared on Instagram Live with her boyfriend Kenneth 'Zoo' Pett, who is facing backlash after fans spotted gun in his pocket.
After appearing on Instagram Live with his 36-year-old rapstress beau, Petty has come under fire after fans spotted what appears to be a gun with an extended clip peeking out of his pocket.
Petty, who was convicted of first-degree manslaughter in 2002, faced major backlash from fans online. Many hailed the move as irresponsible in light of America's mass shooting crisis.
"After countless mass shootings this summer, you let him walk into a live with your kindergarten fans watching with a gun in his pocket?! Are you DUMB?!" wrote one user.
"WHY WOULD DUDE HAVE A GUN IN HIS POCKET AND BE ON LIVE WHEN DUDE IS A WHOLE FELON???? MR AND MRS PETTY GOTTA BE STUPID AS F**K!" said another.
Both Nicki and Kenneth are yet to address the incident. The couple, who have known each other since childhood, are reportedly due to wed within the coming months.
