Nicki Minaj Slams Steven Tyler, "Racist" Comment

by at . Comments

Her feud with one American Idol judge on pause, Nicki Minaj has moved on to a former American Idol judge.

In an interview over the weekend with MTV News, Steven Tyler was asked for his take on the American Idol Season 12 judging panel - and he held little back in his response.

After first mocking the Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey mess, Tyler said of the former:

"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."

The opinion didn't sit well with Minaj.

"Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield???" she wrote on Twitter. "Steven, you haven't seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet! You assume that I wouldn't have liked Bob Dylan??? Why? Black? Rapper? What? Go f--- yourself and worry about yourself babe.

"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."

In the end, the rapper came to her own conclusion over why Tyler would say such a thing:

"When Steven first went on Idol he was ridiculed by his peers and fans alike. Called a sell out So what does he do? Ridicule the next judge."

Why do we feel like we have not heard the last of this beef?

On whose side do you fall in it?
