Nicki Minaj apologized for her “Only” lyric video displaying Nazi symbolism.

The Anti-Defamation League issued an official response:

“Nicki Minaj’s new video disturbingly evokes Third Reich propaganda and constitutes a new low for pop culture’s exploitation of Nazi symbolism,” says ADL National Director and a Holocaust survivor Abraham H. Foxman. “This video is insensitive to Holocaust survivors and a trivialization of the history of that era. The abuse of Nazi imagery is deeply disturbing and offensive to Jews and all those who can recall the sacrifices Americans and many others had to make as a result of Hitler’s Nazi juggernaut.”

Fox adds: “It is troubling that no one among Minaj’s group of producers, publicists and managers raised a red flag about the use of such imagery before ushering the video into public release.” In particular, how could Drake (who is Jewish and features on the track) sign off on this? Nicki is yet to address the situation at all.

Nicki issued a public apology on Twitter, saying:


Get that controversy! Do you think Nicki took it too far?
