Nicki Minaj's new militaristic video for her song "Only" has garnered quite a bit of controversy for its visuals, which many fans are likening to Nazi imagery. The Anti-Defamation League also finds the video's visuals troubling, and released a statement on Monday about the "unadulterated Nazi imagery" in Minaj's video.
ADL National Director and Holocaust survivor Abraham H. Foxman, issued this 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.
