    Nicki Minaj Accused Of Using Nazi Imagery In New Video

    This was a bad idea.

    Nicki Minaj is facing accusations of anti-semitism after releasing a seemingly 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.

    There's a Nuremberg-esque parking lot for her tanks.

    And her soldiers are shown wearing Nazi-esque armbands.

    Intentional or not, fans on Twitter are outraged by the imagery.

    Just saw Nicki Minaj's lyric video for "Only You" and all I could say is PROBLEMATIC

    @NICKIMINAJ i <3 you. but making a nazi themed video, w/yourself as a sexy Hitler & your initials looking like a swastika? disrespectful :(

    I like "Only" by @NICKIMINAJ with @drake and @chrisbrown / but who the hell thought it was ok to have the lyrics vid channel Nazi & Hitler?

    Some are even calling for the video be taken down.

    Take down the nazi vid thanks @NICKIMINAJ

    @NICKIMINAJ Please delete the ONLY lyric video and apologize for the Nazi references please.

    @osnof @NICKIMINAJ right? I would love if @YouTube take this down smh @ het glamorizing nazi

    Has Nicki finally gone too far? Watch the full video and decide for yourself.
