Nicki Minaj has apologized after an intense backlash followed the release of the artwork for her single, Lookin A– N—-.

The rapper released the art for the video Wednesday. It featured her name and the song title on an image of civil rights leader Malcolm X that was originally released by Ebony magazine in 1964.

Minaj posted a screenshot from the video Thursday on Instagram along with a lengthy caption. In it she apologizes to “the Malcolm X estate if the meaning of the photo was misconstrued.”

She began the caption by writing, “What seems to be the issue now? Do you have a problem with me referring to the people Malcolm X was ready to pull his gun out on as Lookin A– N—–?. Well, I apologize. That was never the official artwork nor is this an official single. This is a conversation. Not a single.”
