Nicki Minaj calls Steven Tyler 'racist' on Twitter in response to MTV interview
Now Minaj is calling out former "Idol" judge Steven Tyler for comments he made in an interview with MTV News.
Minaj unleashed her fury Monday afternoon on Twitter:
"Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven't seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet!" Minaj tweeted, continuing: "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--- yourself and worry about yourself babe." (Minaj's tweet was uncensored.)
After retweeting several supportive notes from fans, Minaj returned to the subject of Tyler and made an allusion to Carey's interview with Barbara Walters:
"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. When Steven 1st went on Idol he was ridiculed by his peers & fans alike. Called a sell out. So what does he do? Ridicule the next judge."
