Why did Google really take down the image of Harriet Tubman from their homepage?
To kick off Black History Month, the Internet search engine posted an image of Harriet Tubman wearing a scarf and carrying a lantern on their homepage. America’s Got Talent host, Nick Cannon was not happy with the tribute and helped stir up controversy after expressing his outrage on Instagram.
“Really Google??? This is the way we are kicking off Black History Month. #UndergroundSearchEngine #WhoApprovedThis #WhySheRockingALouieVscarf #AmIJustBeingSensitive #FeelingSomeTypeOfWay #RacistMuch.”
Nearly 24-hours after Cannon’s post, Google removed the image, but it had nothing to do with the TV host’s fury. A source for Google tells TMZ that the tribute was removed because “Harriet was up for a full 24-hours … just like all the other Google doodle tributes.”
