Nicki Minaj is on one. The YMCMB Barbie has been tweeting like a Cheeto-colored POTUS, and today (August 20) she decided to compare herself to Harriet Tubman.
“All the QUEENS I remember, SHOOK SH*T UP!!!!!!!! Queen of the week may go to HARRIET TUBMAN!!!!!! Had she just sat there & ate her rice, you niggaz history would’ve been a lot less triumphant” she tweeted.
We got so many questions. Like, how is Nicki Minaj aware of Tubman’s diet? And, would Tubman approve of such reckless Twitter fingering?
Needless to say, Twitter saw the tweet and got to reacting. So much so that Harriet Tubman is trending. Not because she ushered so many slaves to freedom. Not because she finally about to hit the $20 bill. But because Nicki Minaj tweeted about her. Silver lining?
Also, did we mention how she called herself the female Jay-Z earlier in the day?
Anway, peep the slander in the gallery.

Did you just compare yourself to Harriet Tubman? Perhaps you can find the underground railroad to more record sales. https://t.co/Hj1ovREI4b— monique, who is openly Black (@thejournalista) August 20, 2018
