Nicki Minaj is being slammed for using ‘Nazi imagery’ in her new music video for Only.
The rapper acts out the role of dictator in the animated short film, using black and white imagery which appears to take inspiration from the well-known Nazi propaganda machine.
The video, which also features Chris Brown, Drake and Lil Wayne, shows an army wearing red armbands, and flags showing a Y-M symbol – which has been slammed as eerily similar to a swastika.
One Twitter user wrote: “Hey @NickiMinaj thanks for the blatant Nazi imagery in your new video! really great allusion to persecution & genocide.”
Another non-impressed user said: “Nicki Minaj’s ‘Only’ video’s a boring accessory to a trivial song that uses Nazi imagery lazily & elevates Hitler for publicity. Just yawn.”
