Nicky Minaj has been criticised for a new music video which sees her rapping on Westminster Bridge in London, the site of a terrorist attack which left six people dead last March.

The promo for her new single, No Frauds, shows the 34-year-old star performing on the landmark bridge, which is situated beside the British Houses of Parliament, wearing a headdress and slinky, beaded outfit.

The video was filmed just 24 hours prior to the attack on March 22 and also features Drake and Lil Wane.

It had previously been reported that Minaj would cut the contentious scenes but the video has been released with the scenes of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.

Critics have taken to Twitter to condemn the decision.

However, Minaj has won support for the video from some unexpected sources. 

Tory MP and "Minister for Brexit" David Davies said on twitter that while he has never heard of the rapper, he is supporting her decision to show positive images of the London landmark instead of associating it with terror.

Six people were killed and dozens of others were injured when Khalid Masood drove a car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before entering the grounds of the Palace of Westminster with a knife, where he was shot dead.

After the attack, Minaj posted on Twitter: "May God protect everyone in London. Hate hearing this sad news. Sending my condolences to the victims' families."
