Controversial videos and topics often make their way onto Twitter where users freely express their thoughts and opinions. As a result, many viral videos are often first posted on this social media platform. One such video that recently started trending on Twitter is the “Onika Burger” meme. People are curious to know who Onika Burger is, what the name signifies, and why it’s trending.
The meaning behind “Onika Burger”
If you’re an active Twitter user, then you might have come across a meme that reads “Onika Burger” or “She=Onika Ate=Burgers”. This meme is actually referring to Nicki Minaj, whose real name is Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty. The meme was started by a Twitter user with the handle @sexxtbook, who claimed that Minaj was overweight due to her frequent burger consumption.
The tweet sparked the creation of countless “Onika Burger” memes, particularly within “Stan Twitter” circles. The tweet itself was a response to a thread started by Pop Base, which featured a sketch drawn by North West (daughter of Kim Kardashian and Ye) of her grandmother Kris Jenner.
Breaking down the “Onika Burger” meme
If you’ve been following this meme but are still unsure of its meaning, here’s a quick breakdown. It all started with a tweet by Pop Base featuring a sketch drawn by North West of her grandmother Kris Jenner. One user commended North’s artistic skills by saying “Why she ate”, which was followed by another user who used that opportunity to body-shame Nicki Minaj by stating “She=Onika Ate=Burgers”. While Onika refers to Minaj’s birth name, the tweet was meant to imply that Minaj eats nothing but burgers and is therefore overweight.
