Steven Tyler: I'm not a racist

2012-11-29 07:34
Los Angeles - Steven Tyler has hit back at Nicki Minaj for calling him a "racist".

The American Idol judge lashed out at the Aerosmith rocker - whom she replaced on the panel of the talent show - after he questioned her suitability and claimed she would've passed on legendary musician Bob Dylan if he auditioned.

But Steven was shocked when Nicki took it as a racist insult.

He told Canada's eTalk: "It was a moment, I'm sorry if it was taken wrong. But I'm the furthest from a racist. I'm not sure how she got that from me saying 'I'm not sure she would have judged Bob Dylan'.

"I was just saying if Bob Dylan came on the show he would have been thrown off. Maybe I spoke out of turn but a racist I'm not."

Nicki was furious when Steven insisted she would have turned down Bob Dylan if he auditioned for American Idol and took to Twitter to blast the Aerosmith rocker.

She wrote: "Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven't seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet.

"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' (sic)"

    How is it a racist comment? F*** its way out of hand. The 'R' word should be banned just like the 'K' and 'N' word. "I have no argument therefor you must be a racist!"

    The sideline banter is more interesting than the actual show and I consider it to be lame, Super Rich people insulting each other. Mnet, You are showing the good one, America`s got Talent between 6 and 7 during the week, Normally the exact time I am driving home from work yet you show this rubbish when I am able to watch something. Your scheduling sucks....And I still cant believe none of your channels broadcast The Walking Dead, How did you miss that one......

    ASIA FOR THE ASIANS, AFRICA FOR THE AFRICANS, WHITE COUNTRIES FOR EVERYBODY! Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries. The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them. Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites. What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries? How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem? And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this? But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews. They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white. Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.
