Nicki Minaj has accused Steven Tyler of racism after he made comments about her judging on American Idol.

The rapper has replaced the Aerosmith frontman in a revamped line-up for the talent show that also includes Mariah Carey and Keith Urban. But earlier this week Tyler gave a lengthy tirade to MTV News about the new judges.

During the outburst, Tyler said that if Bob Dylan turned up in the Idol auditions, Minaj would "have had him sent to the cornfield!" He added, "Whereas if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best out of him."

In response, Minaj has taken to Twitter to respond in a stinging series of posts during which she said that Tyler's statement was a "racist comment" and that Tyler was sore about losing his spot on the panel.



The star's response continues: "I understand you really wanted to keep your job but take that up with the producers. I haven't done anything to you. That's a racist comment… You assume that I wouldn't have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what? go fuck yourself and worry about yourself babe… LOL lets make him a shirt that says "No Coloreds Allowed" then escort him down 2 Barbara Walters so he can tell how he was threatened w/guns… When Steven 1st went on Idol he was ridiculed by his peers & fans alike. Called a sell out. So what does he do? Ridicule the next judge."

American Idol's twelfth season will start early in 2013. Earlier this month, Minaj released an expanded version of her album, 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up'.
