‘Too soon?’ Nicki Minaj criticized for featuring Westminster Bridge in new music video

DUBAI: US rapper Nicki Minaj has been criticized on social media after releasing her latest music video which features scenes shot on London’s Westminster Bridge the day before the terror attack in March.
Minaj filmed the video for “No Frauds” the day before Khalid Masood drove his car into a crowd of people on the bridge, killing four members of the public.
The rapper tweeted her condolences at the time.

There were reports that the scenes would be cut but the video, which was released on April 19, shows scenes of the bridge and the Houses of Parliament as well as other London landmarks.
The 34-year-old tweeted: “Honored to have shot this video in London.”
However, some fans have questioned whether the video’s inclusion of scenes from London was “too soon.”
@NICKIMINAJ by Westminster Bridge in her new vid... too soon?" one user tweeted while others reiterated the sentiment.

Some fans, however, could not understand the fuss.
