Militant U.S. Democrats have taken aim at rapper Nicki Minaj after she suggested she was a fan of Mitt Romney’s Republicans in a rhyme on Lil Wayne’s new trackMercy.
The hip-hop star has never spoken of her political leanings, but it appears she's not a huge fan of President Barack Obama.
In Wayne's new tune she raps, "I'm a Republican voting for Mitt Romney/You lazy b------ are f------ up the economy."
Whatever the true meaning behind the remark, Minaj has upset Obama's supporters, who have taken to various blogs to attack her.
One Democrat called the Super Bass hitmaker a "no talent having a--" in a tweet, while another wrote, "somebody please kill nicki minaj".
