Nicki Minaj killed the MTV EMAs last night, but today she is in hot water over the lyric video for her single “Only,” which features a cartoon dictator version of herself ruling over a fictional regime, which many people are saying looks a whole lot like Nazi Germany.

“Nicki Minaj’s new video disturbingly evokes Third Reich propaganda and constitutes a new low for pop culture’s exploitation of Nazi symbolism,” said Abraham H. Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League and a Holocaust survivor, in a statement to FOX411. “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.”

Red and black flags fly through the air and soldiers with arm bands are seen lined up in the video, with many viewers saying the symbols resemble the swastika.

The video came out on Friday, and over the weekend it gained attentioned on social media, with many users and fans criticizing the symbolism and Nicki’s poor judgment.

Some even criticized Drake, who is half Jewish, for appearing on the track.

No word from Nicki or her team yet.
