Nicki Minaj’s ‘No Frauds’ Music Video Criticized for Westminster Bridge Footage

Yesterday, Nicki Minaj released her new music video for “No Frauds,”. In the video, Nicki takes London by storm and can be seen hanging out around a few of the city’s iconic hot spots. But what would otherwise be a triumphant moment for Nicki is instead igniting some controversy, as some are upset that the star included footage of Westminster Bridge, the site of the London terror attack that happened less than a month ago.

Per The Sun, Nicki filmed at least some of the relevant scenes on Westminster Bridge the day before the attack occurred. She was also reportedly thinking of reshooting elsewhere

On March 22, a terrorist ran pedestrians down on Westminster Bridge before crashing into Parliament’s gates, stabbing and killing a police officer, and ultimately being shot by police. Five people, including the attacker, died in the attack, while 50 were left injured. At the time, Nicki joined mourners around the world in expressing her sympathies for those affected by the terror attack, tweeting, “May God protect everyone in London. Hate hearing this sad news. Sending my condolences to the victims’ families.”

However, Nicki is now being accused of being insensitive, with many on social media saying that the Westminster Bridge footage in “No Frauds” is simply arriving too soon. Some have expressed their disappointment that no one on the video’s creative team decided it best to leave the potentially triggering portions out, especially so soon after the attacks
