Blazing pink bonfire Nicki Minaj was once an active vigilante on the front lines of pen-justice. She told Taffy Brodesser-Akner at GQ that while she was a waitress, she chased down a couple who had stolen the pen she left for them to sign their receipt.

For her righteousness — which brought her to a parking lot and caused her to raise her middle finger up toward the all-seeing sky — Minaj was fired from Red Lobster.
