Hip Hop artist and rapper Nicki Minaj is facing accusations of anti-semitism after releasing a Nazi-inspired lyric video for her new single, “Only.” In the animated clip, Nicki is depicted as a powerful military leader in charge of an army that look suspiciously like a bunch SS officers. Red flags that feature a distorted, swastika-looking version of her initials are featured throughout the video. Fans on Twitter are outraged by the imagery. Checkout the video below:
And the Tweets from fans:
