When asked for his opinion on the next batch of “American Idol” judges, ex-judge and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler had some strong opinions -- and Nicki Minaj has not taken them well. In fact, she took to Twitter and accused him of racism.
When MTV asked him about his successors, Tyler criticized the tension between them, saying that the “camaraderie” between judges was what nurtured talent like the winner, Phillip Phillips because they “brought the best of him out.” He elaborated by saying “If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield!”
But Nicki’s not happy about Tyler’s comments. She posted a series of tweets, saying "You assume that I wouldn't have liked Bob Dylan? Why? Black? Rapper? What?” and added "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." Do you think Tyler’s comments were racist, or has Nicki misunderstood?
