Nicki Minaj Comes Under Fire For Using Footage Filmed On Westminster Bridge In No Frauds Music Video
The video for No Frauds, which features Drake and Lil' Wayne, includes a lot of footage captured in the city. It opens on a shot of Big Ben and shots panning across Westminster.
The footage was captured the day before terrorist Khalid Masood used a 4x4 as a weapon to move down pedestrians before stabbing and killing a police officer outside Parliament.
When everybody involved in the project heard the news they were devastated and thought it would be in bad taste to feature it, a source told The Sun.
But after the music video dropped, it was made clear that the footage made it to the final edit.
Some fans took to social media to say they felt it was too soon.
One posted: "I thought Nicki was editing out those shots of Westminster bridge"
Another said: "@NICKIMINAJ by Westminster Bridge in her new vid... too soon?" And the outrage went on.
