You'd think being a rock superstar would earn Steven Tyler a modicum of respect. Not quite.
Tyler recently critiqued current "American Idol" judge Nicki Minaj, saying the rap star would likely vote down a young Bob Dylan if he tried out for the show.
Current judge Nicki Minaj responded with a vulgar Twitter tirade:
"You assume that I wouldn't have liked Bob Dylan???" Minaj responded via Twitter. "Why? black? rapper? what? go **** yourself and worry about yourself babe."
"I understand you really wanted to keep your job [on Idol] but take that up with the producers," she continued. "I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven't seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet! That's a racist comment Lets make [Steven] a shirt that says 'No Coloreds Allowed' then escort him down 2 Barbara Walters so he can tell [her] how he was threatened w/guns."
Tyler went on to say his "American Idol" crew, which included black judge Randy Jackson and Latina Jennifer Lopez, would have given someone like Dylan the green light.
Is the pop culture world condemning Minaj for her cruel comments and incendiary accusation?
Is Tyler slinking away and apologizing for offending Minaj?
It's standard operating procedure in the Age of Obama. The race card can fit virtually any situation, and you don't need facts to back it up. Chris Matthews can call Mitt Romney supporters racist without proof and keep his gig. Documentary filmmaker Ken Burns can savage the Tea Party as racist without proof and retain his standing in film circles.
So when Minaj fired off her angry retort, she knew she would face no backlash. In fact, she could have predicted Tyler, a rock legend, would quickly apologize for doing nothing wrong.
she would be a great reason if one chose to be a racist!
Steven Tyler just got his balls cut off.
Thought you had a pair, Steve.
This is where Tyler should`ve retorted, “Hey, bitch... STFU and stop playing that chicken-sh*t racial game like so many of you do and grow up. You are NEVER going to reach my level, no matter how much ghetto trash you spew.”
The race-baiters are taking on the bully role. Until they get hard, direct pushback, it`s only going to get worse.
Ted Nugent wouldn`t have taken that sh*t from the likes of her. They know not to tangle with him.
“Sheesh... She’s black? Color me embarrassed. I thought she was white.”
That woman is a talentless, anti- Christian, anti-Catholic loon, and serves to show how low American Idol has sunk. Who produces this show anyway?
Reminds me of Mel Brooks' Robin Hood, Men in Tights:
"A Black Sheriff?"
"Why not, it worked in Blazing Saddles!"
Now there was a guy who could turn this PC crap on its head, and I defy anyone to call him a racist!
I love Cosby....I’ve watched him since I was a boy, and I’m pushing 60....but make no mistake. The man has a strong racist string running through him. He built a career out of hiding that and just being funny as hell, but he doesn’t have much love for whitey.
His saving grace, to my mind, is that he’ll be hard on “urban blacks” as well, making fun of their speech, language, intelligence....or should I say, lack thereof.
Idol is on its last legs.
Keith Urban could be a smart pickup but the feuding between Mariah Carey and Minaj will finally kill the show.
Too many blacks can’t take criticism because they feel they should always stand on that moral high ground due to past discrimination, regardless of the circumstance or the truth. It is a crutch they are allowed to keep that lifts too many blacks higher in society than they deserve as it is not based on their talent or intelligence. It also allows them to discriminate with impunity and attack anyone who calls them out. Obviously, Nikki sucks at her job but won’t be called on it.
This is one of those freaks of modern culture that I would never have heard of, save for it being shoved randomly in my face on a news website or FR or some such.
I don't know what it sounds like or what it does exactly, but it looks like something created for the sole purpose of being cast headlong into the abyss.
Her “music” is the epitome of suckage.
What is a ‘Nicky Minaj’?
