Nicki Minaj Only Video Offends Anti-Defamation League!!
Nicki Minaj Only Video Completely Offensive To Holocaust Survivors, Minaj Only Video Offends Anti-Defamation League!
The controversial video has Twitter up in arms as fans have been SLAMMING the offensive “Only” video directed by Jeffrey Osborne!
The video gives the song a whole new meaning which has ruined the song. It was so much more creative and what we imagined wasn’t a propaganda video filled with Hollocaust imagery of the Nazi regime trying to take over the world with blood shed. For some reason, Nicki’s camp decided to release the video on the anniversary of the Holocaust. The Anti-Defamation League has gone after Minaj, both for the video itself and for releasing it on the 76th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the “Night of Broken Glass,” which signaled the beginning of the Holocaust, CelebNMusic247.com learns via The Hollywood Reporter.
The animated video for the song featuring Drake, Lil Wayne and Chris Brown, sets up Minaj as the leader [dictator] of an army that looks a lot like Adolf Hitler’s Nazis, except the initials of her Young Money record label stand in for a swastika.
Take a look at the shocking imagery in this video:
The video is actually disturbing to watch as the video shows how they have a strong hold over the military, religion and the economy tricking people to believe the new world order is good. Don’t believe the hype!
Holocaust survivor and ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman issued the following statement:
Nicki Minaj’s new video disturbingly evokes Third Reich propaganda and constitutes a new low for pop culture’s exploitation of Nazi symbolism. The irony should be lost on no one that this video debuted on the 76th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the “night of broken glass” pogrom that signaled the beginning of the Final Solution and the Holocaust.
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.
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.
