Nicki Minaj's 'Only' Video Accused of Using Nazi-Like Imagery

Nicki Minaj's new video for her tune "Only" is being accused of using Nazi-like imagery.

No actual swastikas appear in the animated video (below), but Minaj plays a dictator and her towering "YM" (young money) symbol has an eerie resemblance to the Third Reich.

Several Twitterusers have pointed out that the video includes Nazi-style armbands, gas masks, tanks, troops, color schemes and flags, notes

The song also features Lil Wayne, Chris Brown and Drake, who is half Jewish.

According to the Daily Mail, the video appears to be inspired by black and white Nazi-propaganda films.

The video also includes several instances of the F-word and N-word.

Minaj has not commented, but the video's director Jeff Osborne has retweeted many of the negative reactions, reports Gawker.
