‘Disrespectful’: Nicki Minaj’s New Video, Shot On Westminster Bridge, Is Getting Slammed By Fans
They think it's "too soon" following last month's terror attack.
Nicki Minaj has released her new music video to No Frauds, but people aren’t happy about the location it was shot in.
The Super Bass singer filmed the video on Westminster Bridge in London, just a few weeks before four people were killed in a terror attack there on 22nd March.
At the time, Nicki paid tribute to the victims, tweeting: “May God protect everyone in London. Hate hearing this sad news. Sending my condolences to the victims’ families.”
May God protect everyone in London. Hate hearing this sad news. Sending my condolences to the victims' families.

It was thought that she would edit the bridge scenes out of the video, as a source told The Sun, “When everybody involved in the project heard the news they were devastated and thought it would be in bad taste to feature it. The other London scenes will remain, but it’s highly doubtful the bridge footage will make the cut.”
However, when the video was released, the Westminster scenes were included. Fans were disappointed, feeling that it’s insensitive to the victims’ families and claiming it’s “too soon.”
