New York, NY, November 11, 2014 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) welcomed today’s statement from pop artist Nicki Minaj apologizing to her fans and taking full responsibility for her music video containing Nazi imagery released last week.
Earlier today on Twitter, Minaj responded to the controversy with a series of tweets apologizing to her fans and all those offended and indicating that, “I’d never condone Nazism in my art.”
“We are pleased that Nicki Minaj has taken full responsibility for the video and recognized that it was indeed offensive,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director and a Holocaust survivor. “Her clear renunciation of Nazism is an important step. We hope that she will take further steps to educate herself and her fans about who the Nazis were and why we should never take genocide or the Holocaust lightly.”
