Harriet Tubman will be the new face of the $20 bill, and now stars are reacting to her being the first African-American woman to appear on U.S. currency. See celebrity reactions below.
Tubman will replace former President Andrew Jackson on the note. The announcement comes after the Obama administration said it had planned to put a woman on the $10 bill, which would have replaced Alexander Hamilton. Tubman, a Civil War-era abolitionist who helped rescue slaves using the Underground Railroad, will be the third ever woman on an American bill. Martha Washington briefly appeared on a one-dollar note and Pocahontas on the $20 bill, both in the 1800s.
Zendaya tweeted, “This is incredible,” sharing the news with her 6.4 million followers. Bravo’s Andy Cohen exclaimed, “You GO, Harriet Tubman!” And John Legend simply wrote, “#HarrietTubman.” Sophia Bush expressed, “If the wonderful news about H. Tubman on the $20 is true, it needs to happen asap. We’ve waited long enough.” “howwwwww mad is andrew jackson right now,” added Chrissy Teigen.
“Harriet Tubman on $20bill!! Yesss!! That’s gonna be awkward at the strip club. Lol,” tweeted “Orange Is The New Black” star Danielle Brooks. Former “Saturday Night Live” star and now Sen. Al Franken wrote, “Great to see that abolitionist Harriet Tubman will be on $20 bill & that we’ll soon have other women on our currency.” And Hillary Clinton noted, “A woman, a leader, and a freedom fighter. I can’t think of a better choice for the $20 bill than Harriet Tubman.”
