Former “American Idol” judge Steven Tyler evidently doesn’t have much confidence in new judge Nicki Minaj’s ability to spot talent, telling MTV News that she would vote off Bob Dylan if he were a show contestant. Not terribly chivalrous of him, but was it racist? Minaj thought so, and she took to Twitter to smack him around:


Perhaps Tyler could have kept his criticism to himself, but Minaj should probably put the race card away and focus on the task at hand. Future Bob Dylans are depending on her.
