Nicki Minaj says Steven Tyler’s recent criticism of her ability to be a judge on American Idol is racist.

In a recent interview, Tyler asserted that Nicki is ill-equipped to judge Idol, and would have kicked Bob Dylan off the show.

Is that assumption racist?

From Hip Hop DX:

“If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield! Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with Phillip Phillips. Just saying.”

Nicki didn’t take the jab lightly, questioning Tyler’s assumption that she doesn’t like Bob Dylan.

“Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven’t seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet!”

“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 fuck yourself and worry about yourself babe.”

“LOL lets make him a shirt that says “No Coloreds Allowed” then escort him down 2 Barbara Walters so he can tell how he was threatened w/guns”


Was Steven Tyler’s assumption that Nicki Minaj doesn’t like Bob Dylan racist?

Does she have what it takes to be a judge on Idol?
