Nicki is striking back at Steven Tyler after the former ‘American Idol’ judge spoke about her negatively in a new interview — calling him out on Twitter! Read on for all the details.

The new judging panel on American Idol has generated plenty of headlines after the drama between new judgesNicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. One of the judges they replaced, Steven Tyler, isn’t afraid to let people know he isn’t a fan of the new judges — and Nicki’s not very happy about it!

When speaking with MTV News on Nov. 21, Steven admitted he isn’t a fan of Nicki’s reportedly brash judging style. “These kids, they just got out of a car from the Midwest somewhere and they’re in New York City, they’re scared to death; you’re not going to get the best [out of them],” Steven said. “If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield! Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with Phillip Phillips. Just saying,” he concluded.

Let the Twitter Fight BEGIN!

The story, which wasn’t released until Nov. 26, didn’t sit well with Nicki. “Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven’t seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet!” she tweeted.

But it didn’t stop there. Nicki continued, saying “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.” She concluded with her angriest tweet in the bunch. “You assume that I wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what? go f**k yourself and worry about yourself babe.”

Who do you think was in the wrong, HollywoodLifers? Steven or Nicki?
