Rapper Nicki Minaj has been slammed for blatantly using Nazi imagery and ‘glorifying Hitler’ in the newly released video for her song Only which also features Chris Brown, Drake and Lil Wayne. Jeff Osborne directed the video.
In the animated clip, Minaj is in charge of an army of soldiers wearing red armbands emblazoned with black Young Money logos that strongly resemble the Nazi swastika. Brown is a military leader, Wayne is head of business and Drake is the Pope.
Their followers on Twitter have said that the clip degrades the millions of people who lost their lives during WW2 and some are even calling for the video to be taken down. While Minaj has yet to respond to the backlash on social media, Osborne has been favoriting and retweeting negative tweets, mocking the enraged fans.
