YouTube immediately placed an age restriction on the Drevinci x Gtown-directed video upon its release. After the visual displayed a warning that it was “not suitable for viewers under the age of 18,” Minaj clapped back at Youtube on her Instagram.

The 2022 MTV VMA Vanguard recipient wrote: “Imagine this. They restricted my f**king video but have things a million fu**ing times worse on their bogus fking platform. This is what they do to keep you from winning while doing ads for other ppl and posting fake fking stats. Because the same ppl who run YouTube are in bed with a certain record label and mngmnt company.”

“Likkle Miss Remix” is a dancehall song and video that displays Caribbean fashion and dance moves. Women in the video can be seen wearing revealing bottoms, tops and more as they wine with male partners. Minaj also twerks as she raps with Skeng inside a convertible.
The backlash from Minaj and her “Barbz” has led YouTube to remove the restriction once and for all. The platform issued the statement: “We removed the age restriction after determining the video didn’t violate our Community Guidelines. Since, Minaj has deleted her Instagram posts bashing the platform.
“Likkle Miss Remix” is featured on Minaj’s greatest hits compilation, Queen Radio: Volume 1.
