Memo to Nicki Minaj: Comparing yourself to Harriet Tubman is not a good look and is a really bad idea. The madness started Monday afternoon when she praised the legendary abolitionist on Twitter for shaking “sh*t up.”

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

As you can image, it didn’t take long for folks to put Minaj on blast for putting herself in the same league as Tubman. But Minaj’s backlash only increased after she compared Tubman’s struggles to free slaves to her debuting at No. 2 on Spotify.

“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 wrote. “I fought for streaming services to count toward billboard when alotta n—z stayed quiet.”

“Comparing your album sales to Harriet Tubman’s fight for freedom is the most stupid commentary on slavery in 2018 and that includes Kanye saying slavery was a choice,” one follower tweeted.

Another wrote:

“I’m not sure if there’s a person in the US alive today who can respectfully compare themselves to ‘Harriet Tubman.’”

The criticism didn’t move Minaj one iota. In fact, while discussing the VMAs before the shows with TMZ, she he maintained her opinion.

“I am the new Harriet Tubman,” she said on her way to the VMAs. When asked if she thought it was too far given Tubman’s slavery connections, Minaj repeated:

“No, no, I am Harriet Tubman. Leave me alone.”

This is when you know you’re insane.

  1. I think she is so nutty over losing her status. People just got sick and tired of her attitude. People love Cardi B and Nikki cannot handle it. Will be so glad when Beyonce goes down with Nikki.

    Nicki could not even hold a candle to Harriet Winslow, yet she had the audacity to compare herself to Harriet Tubman. Girl, have a seat. No. Your behind might deflate. Go stand in the corner for that nonsense.

    This is what happens when disturbed folks go off their medication. Best thing people can do is ignore her.

  4. Justbeingme on said:

    She needs to educate herself about Harriet Tubman and all of our civil rights activists and black leaders our black heritage and ancestors and culture. She is just seeking attention she has enough with some of the classless outfits she where’s and some of the horrible music she makes. Leave Harriet Tubman name out your mouth first off she could never have walked in Harriet Tubman shoes.

  5. Really on said:

    I don’t know what to say about singers today and Nicki is DEFINITELY no Harriet Gunman…no way..no how..not by a long shot and its very insulting for her to compare herself to a woman who contributed to her life. Harriet is probably turning over on her grave knowing this.

    Man..anything for album sales and a quick buck.Its disgusting at the length some singers will sink to do it.
