Nicki Minaj has lashed out at former “American Idol” judge and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler over remarks he made, which the rapper deemed racially insensitive.

In an interview with MTV, Tyler questioned Minaj’s ability as a judge to nurture and get the best of contestants.

“If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield! Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with Phillip Phillips. Just saying,” said Tyler.

The rapper responded to Tyler’s comments with a series of tweets, calling the statement “racist” and telling the rocker to “go f**k [him]self” in another tweet.
