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.

State still plans double execution despite Supreme Court setback
His execution, as well as Bruce Earl Ward's, never occurred due to stays put in place by the Arkansas Supreme Court. That would be the most in the United States in as short a period since the death penalty's reinstatement in 1976.

The political world waits on Georgia race, Ossoff
He raised over $8 million , compared with Handel's roughly $460,000. Georgia's special election to replace former House Rep. Ossoff is sounding equally confident.

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.
