UPSET: Nicki Minaj
RAPPER NICKI Minaj branded Aerosmith star and former American Idol judge Steven Tyler as ‘racist’ in a recent twitter rant.
The Starships hit-maker, who she replaced on the judging panel of the talent show, blasted the 64-year-old after he questioned her suitability for the programme and claimed she would've sent legendary musician Bob Dylan to a ‘cornfield’ if he auditioned.
She tweeted: "Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven't seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet [sic].”
"I understand you really wanted to keep your job but take that up with the producers. I haven't done anything to you. That's a racist comment.”
"You assume that I wouldn't have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what? go f**k yourself and worry about yourself babe. LOL lets make him a shirt that says 'No Coloreds Allowed' [sic]."
Tyler has yet to make a statement on Nicki’s remarks.
