Nicki Minaj accuses Steven Tyler of being "racist"

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.
