Nicki Minaj is understandably getting hate for calling herself the new Harriet Tubman, the courageous Black women who freed hundreds of slaves in the 1800s.

“All the QUEENS I remember, SHOOK S–T UP!!!!!!!! Queen of the week may go to HARRIET TUBMAN!!!!!!” she tweeted. “Had she just sat there & ate her rice, you n—-z history would’ve been a lot less triumphant.”

She’s not apologizing, though. “Y’all I had no idea Harriet Tubman was now trending. I said what I said. #QueenRadio will honor her tmrw. She said she could’ve rescued more slaves had they known they were slaves,” she followed up. “I fought for streaming services to count toward billboard when alotta n—z stayed quiet.”
