Rosa Parks’ Family Slams Nicki Minaj’s ‘Disrespectful’ Pun About Civil Rights Icon

Published: Thursday 6th Feb 2020 by Rashad

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.

A post shared by Barbie (@nickiminaj) on

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.

    She said it so what. She was saying it assert how others feel about her. She been on the throne and everybody tryna get her off she said no sit y’all ass down, but everybody so quick to come for the lyrics but not do critical thinking.

    Somehow civil rights activist never came for anyone else recently or even her using Malcolm X face in a cover photo for Lookin Ass but now they coming for her. They really obsessed tbh.

    • Clarks0oñ February 7, 2020

      Shut up
      They criticised her for using malcolm x on the cover.

      It was all over the news.

      Nobody is obsessed with nicki.
      She’s an idiot and her stans are delusional, more delusional than normani stans.

      Always making up silly chart records to boost nicki’s ego.

      Nicki minaj has worn a red wig 5 times this year, nicki minaj is now the first and only female rapper to wear the most red wigs in 2020.

      Dumb àss records. ??

        And your stupid ass fave C***** Cabello with her whiny ass runs and stank ass vocals doesn’t have made up numbers too. F*** that racist you support. You mad because Your fav can’t get a chart record without somebody else being on the damn song. So far that b**** has only been successful with fifth harmony, young thug and Shawn Mendez. That b*** has the machine giving her placements to perform on awards shows and that b*** still ain’t popping. The f**** album never went double plastic because the real Queen made sure Payola was investigated. Once Camila is shelved; we may think about inviting you to be a respected fan again, or not. Sick of you and your rhetoric!

      • Clarks0oñ February 7, 2020

        Blah blah blah

        Camila’s solo career is 3 years old and she already has 2 number 1’s, something nicki doesnt have after 15 years in the game and 1773635372880 features

        Havana has sold more than all nicki Minaj’s songs.

        Camila has 2 songs with 1 billion streams each
        Nicki doesnt have any songs with 1 billion streams

        Nicki Minaj’s brother is a pèdo, and a ràpist.
        Nicki Minaj’s husband is a pèdo, a ŕapist, a murderer also
        Nicki minaj is going to give birth to a pèdo.


  3. Ugghh February 6, 2020

    You will always fail trying to please everybody and the internet stays mad… it’s a play on words. It’s not like she was on the bus yesterday.

    We have bigger problems than some lyrics about a song that won’t make the charts. Parks family speak up and out about the Purge in the making from the State of the Union that happened on Tuesday.

    That was a let’s make this White America television event.

  4. Bravo!! February 6, 2020

    I don’t feel it was no disrespect to Rosa Park at all! If anything, this generation of kids google to see who Rosa Parks is, and what she did for black Americans. So, Rosa park family have several seats in the back of the bus and get yo ass up!

  5. Adonis February 6, 2020

    Let’s not forget when this heffa compared her struggles to win proper awards, to Harriet Tubman’s struggle to free slaves. The aunty is trash! Can we leave her in 2013 please? Thanks.

  6. 2bad2bme February 6, 2020

    Like Lil Kim said, y’all will see her true colors eventually. This fool Nicki assassinated her own career.

    • Pre February 6, 2020

      That bad built faced jigsaw looking b*** fat Kim Chinese kitty doll claimed she don’t know her though. How dare you bring up an epic flop like that. Where is 9? ?????????. **crickets** We see that b**** for who she is now that Biggie not here to write her lyrics. Get your ass up!

      • ??‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian ??‍♀️Not ? TROLLmine ??‍♀️Nor ? TRASHmine February 7, 2020

        Biggie was only alive for 1 of Kims albums… you do know that right? Lol. U must be super young. lol

      • Pre February 7, 2020

        And you do know a lot of songs are scrapped on albums right? Ain’t no more of his writings left for her. Didn’t you listen to 9? Oh yeah, why would you want to?

  7. Pre February 6, 2020

    She doesn’t know what Rosa would be upset at. Rosa knew what had something to do with her and what didn’t. That’s why she decided not to get up. Maybe it’ll get some people to actually look up their history and figure who tf she was tbh

  8. Ugghh February 6, 2020


    Only two other people have received that award Nelson Mandela and Rosa Parks.

    Choose your fûcking battles. And I don’t even care about Nicki like that, but this is stupid.

    More black people coming for black people, but stay fûcking silent when racism walks on their television

    • Clarkson February 7, 2020

      F****** fake ass NAACP people. They need to be getting militant about that not no damn music artist. F*** them. That’s why black people not gone ever get reparations

  9. Caleb February 7, 2020

    Remember when Lil Wayne said he “beat the p*ssy up like Emmett Till”? These Young Money rappers are always disrespecting Civil Rights icons in their lyrics.

    • E. February 7, 2020

      As if you care, you just want something to talk about. You’re not black, don’t act like you give a damn aboit Civil Rights’ Activists.

      • D February 7, 2020

        Well, that was ignorant.

      • Caleb February 7, 2020

        If I didn’t care I wouldn’t have posted it. Don’t be mad cus I stated a fact.

  10. ??‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian ??‍♀️Not ? TROLLmine ??‍♀️Nor ? TRASHmine February 7, 2020

    Super disrespectful.

  11. Clarks0oñ February 7, 2020

    Gurl if u like disrespect jesus, u will still flop.
    Nobody likes u.

    Nice to meet u with megan trainor is not gonna chart next week (high probability)

  12. Only Facts February 7, 2020

    I’m putting money on this song being the final shot to her career. This is the end nicki. You had a good run. Also, the song was supposed to drop at midnight! It’s almost 1am EST! You’re hyping up a song you haven’t even mixed and mastered?! Girl. This is the end. This. Is. The. End. Buh-bye

    • Jasmine The Goat ? of The GrapeJuice.Net February 7, 2020

      U hate Nicki Minaj but you stayed up to listen ? Weirdo

    • E. February 7, 2020

      Damn!!! Why are you worried about when it’s gone drop? You done with Nicki right? I swear y’all haters be on her s*** before her fans.

  13. Yep February 7, 2020

    All these weak a$$ excuses and deflections. Y’all are just disrespectful with worthless parents who didn’t teach you respect. Because of Rosa Parks, y’all don’t have to sit your goofy, Black a**3$ at the back of the bus after you swipe your bus pass. Like her family said, that woman deserves respect. Peeryat.

    • Only Facts February 7, 2020


    • Pre February 7, 2020

      she don’t care at the end of the day and the song still coming out. F them people, they didn’t do nothing when y’all president gave her award to a known racist

      • Yep February 7, 2020

        And she’ll continue to flop into oblivion. Enjoy love!

    • E. February 7, 2020

      That line is not even disrespectful. People just got their panties in a bunches because she used “b******” and “Rosa Parks” in the same sentence. She didn’t call Rosa Parks a b**** so what’s the problem?

  14. Jessica Rawls February 7, 2020

    I’m happy her and her delusional fans need to told this wasn’t ok .

  15. pcd = waypipo Fried Chicken February 7, 2020
