Nicki Minaj

Anaconda Bites Dancer

During VMA Rehearsal

A 6-foot long snake -- believed to be an anaconda -- just bit a dancer during a VMA run-through for Sunday's show ... TMZ has learned.

Nicki Minaj was on stage performing her hit, "Anaconda" when a female dancer was bit by the reptile in front of everyone.

We're told the dancer has just been taken to the hospital where she's being treated.

Anacondas are non-venomous snakes but often transmit bacteria that can lead to serious infections.

The snake was removed from the stage in a container.

It's unclear if the show will 86 the snake for the live telecast.

That had to be nasty. Anacondas have over 100 teeth and when they bite, they don't let go; you have to pry them loose.

Animals shouldn't be used in loud, chaotic, musical performances anyway. Snakes aren't big cats or dogs, but they're animals too. They don't belong. I'm not an animal rights nut, but I feel it's just wrong.

Nicki is a dumb n igger. That's all that needs to be said. Hitler didn't target blacks because blacks can't think worth a damn. They are just stupid violent animals.

One of these days a girl is going to die from the fat injections and lipo by giving her an imbolism in her lungs and then this fad will end.
