Nicki Minaj facing criticism for keeping Westminster Bridge scenes in No Frauds

Nicki Minaj is now under fire after she released her new music video yesterday, which includes clips featuring Westminster Bridge.

Oh, Nicki, not every bridge in London is "London Bridge"!

But the footage has been left in the final version of the video. Four people were killed and 50 others were injured in the attack.

In the aftermath of the drama, Nicki Minaj had announced the removal of the scenes shot on the Westminster Bridge in order to replace them with others located in a more appropriate setting.

Nicki has yet to respond to the criticism, but as she shared a link to the video online, she told her followers: "Honored to have shot this video in London", along with a praying hands emoji.

Bills' Kouandijo given first aid after being found in field
Not far from the scene of an automobile accident in Elma, N.Y., police encountered Kouandjio partially clothed in a field. The report also added that Kouandjio pulled over when he saw flashing lights on the road, and then ran into the field.

After the attack on March 22, Minaj wrote: "May God protect everyone in London".

Nicki previously reached out to the victims of the attack and offered her condolences to their families.

The "Black Barbie" singer faced even further ire from fans when she posted a poll asking fans their favorite scene from the video and called the Westminster Bridge the "London Bridge". Hate hearing this sad news.

However, some fans of the rapper rushed to her defence, including one who tweeted: "Why the hell is @NICKIMINAJ being questioned over filming #NoFrauds at Westminster Bridge before the terrorist attacks!"

The "Anaconda" rapper has not publicly addressed the backlash, but has engaged with fans on Twitter since releasing the visuals.
