Is Nicki Minaj's New Video Nazi-Themed?

Is it me, or has there been an unusual amount of inappropriate Nazi-themed pop culture lately?

Fans of Nicki Minaj are calling for the singer to take down her controversial new video, “Only You,” featuring Drake, Lil Wayne and Chris Brown. With hoards of SS-style troops goose-stepping in an ominously drab fascist landscape while sporting swastika-like armbands, it’s more than a little suggestive of the Third Reich.

At the center of all this is Minaj herself, seated on a red throne overlooking her stormtroopers (is she Hitler in this scenario?).

See for yourself:

Of course, the ADL is “deeply disturbed” about the whole thing. Abe Foxman, who is himself a Holocaust survivor, released the following statement:

As Gawker points out, neither Nicki Minaj nor Jeff Osborne, the video’s director (and also the man who brought you “Anaconda”) have responded to the criticism.

As a fellow member of the Tribe, Drake may want to think twice about this one. Yikes.
