The ‘Anaconda’ hitmaker says she doesn’t care and has no plan to address the controversy surrounding her problematic Rosa Parks lyrics in new song called ‘Yikes’.
Nicki Minaj doesn’t care about controversy surrounding her new song “Yikes”. She is accused of disrespecting the late civil rights icon Rosa Parks, but she has no plan to explain herself.
On February 3, one day before what would have been Parks’ birthday, she released a snippet of the song featuring lyrics, “All you b**ches Rosa Parks / Uh oh, get your a** up.”
Sources connected to the “Pink Friday” rapper previously claimed she meant no disrespect to the activist who defiantly stayed seated when asked to relinquish her seat to a white passenger in 1954. The sources additionally said the timing was just an unlucky coincidence.
However, Nicki denied ever making such comments. “Never said this,” she wrote on her Instagram Story. “Had no clue anyone was mad. Don’t care. #Yikes.”

Her remarks added fuels to the criticisms. “You know it’s sad when the black people don’t even care about the black people in black history month,” one lamented. Another commented, “One minute she claim to be a victim, next she don’t care?” One other added, “Maam we don’t care either that you cried abt getting yo a** beaten. #YIKES.”
Meanwhile, a different individual brought up her brother’s legal woes, “I mean was else do you expect from a rape apologist? The bar was already low so I’m not shocked by anything this woman does anymore. Ignoring her is free.”
Her fans were quick to jump in her defense. One said, “Everybody so sensitive now. Nicki Minaj Rosa park lyric not that outrageous.” Another claimed, “It doesn’t matter,,y’all will always still be mad with her.”
