In February 2014, Nicki Minaj issued an apology to the family of slain civil rights leader Malcolm X after his family and estate criticized her for using his photo to accompany her single, ‘Lookin Ass N*gga.’
Now, almost six years to the date, the Rap diva is under fire again – this time for offending the family of civil rights icon Rosa Parks.

As we reported here, Minaj (as seen in the video above) took to Instagram to trumpet the end of her retirement. Set to return to the music scene with new single, ‘Yikes,’ the song had fans saying just that once they caught wind of the line:
“All you bitches Rosa Parks // Uh oh, get your ass up…”
To add insult to injury, the snippet was uploaded just a day before Parks’ birthday. Despite sources taking to TMZ to defend the diva and assert the ‘bad timing’ of the clip’s arrival was ‘coincidental,’ members of the civil rights icon’s family aren’t exactly buying it.
