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.”

    The scarf that is in the Google Doodle that Harriet Tubman is wearing is actually representative of a scarf she wore in one of her pictures.

    I guess Nick Cannon needed some publicity…..I didn’t see anything wrong with the image, maybe he should have researched images of Harriet Tubman.

    Yes, Nick. You’re being a bit sensitive. You might need to do some research.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

Published

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
