After comparing herself to Harriet Tubman, Nicki Minaj was, understandably, flooded with negative comments. As you may be aware, the female emcee has been complaining about her new album Queen not receiving the recognition she believes it deserves.
After slamming Travis Scott’s new album for making it to the top of the charts by claiming it was all thanks to Kylie Jenner’s promotion, Nicki is once again taking on the role of a victim.
As you can imagine, social media users are not having it, especially because she went as far as to compare herself to Harriet Tubman!
‘All the QUEENS I remember, SHOOK SHIT UP!!!!!!!! Queen of the week may go to HARRIET TUBMAN!!!!!! Had she just sat there and ate her rice, you n****z history would have been a lot less triumphant. ?,’ she tweeted. Yikes!
People were quick to slam her comment, one person writing: ‘Comparing your album sales to Harriet Tubman’s fight for freedom is the most stupid comment on slavery in 2018, and that includes Kanye saying slavery was a choice.’
Someone else tweeted: ‘Like let me stop you right now. Unless you’re trying to overthrow a system of unjust bondage not just profit in it? You ain’t Harriet Tubman.’
‘Harriet Tubman streaming Astroworld like the rest of us lmao,’ another user joked.
‘I put my blood sweat and tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have Kylie Jenner post a tour pass telling ppl to come see her and Stormi. lol. I am actually laughing. Queen broke the record for no. 1 in 86 countries. Thanks Jesus and thank you to my fans,’ Minaj wrote about her and Travis’ albums yesterday.
Reports are saying that while Travis was supposed to sit right behind Nicki at the MTV VMAs, he has requested to be moved further away.
After noticing the backlash over her Harriet Tubman comment, Nicki posted: ‘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. I fought for streaming services to count toward billboard when alotta n***z stayed quiet.’
