Nicki Minaj outrages fans for including Westminster Bridge in new music video just after London terror attack
Rap artist Nicki Minaj has received criticism after releasing her new music video featuring shots of Westminster Bridge.
The video for Nicki’s latest track “No Frauds” was filmed a day before the London terror attacks last month and it had previously been reported that the final cut would exclude the footage filmed in Westminster. It had originally been said that to do so would be in “bad taste” and thus Nicki would remove this content out of respect.
However, the finished version was released yesterday (April 19) and, despite reports, did include shots of Nicki posing on the Westminster bridge as she sings the lyrics to her song.
Many Twitter users took to the social platform to voice their complaints over the “No Frauds” video, which also features Drake and Lil Wayne:

Nicki herself sent out a message to the victims of the terror attacks last month, writing on Twitter: “May God protect everyone in London. Hate hearing this sad news. Sending my condolences to the victims’ families.”

“No Frauds” was written as a reply to a recent diss track called “Shelter” by Remy Ma and is one of three tracks that she released in response to the artist. You can watch the video in full below:
