Nick Cannon got fired up about Google's Black History Month tribute featuring Harriet Tubman -- and sparked some outrage on the Internet -- but the company doesn't think it did anything wrong ... TMZ has learned.

If you missed it, Google's homepage on February 1st featured a doodle of the Civil War era abolitionist carrying a lantern. If you slept through your education -- Tubman led hundreds of slaves to freedom through the Underground Railroad.

The image of HT, wearing a do-rag, rubbed Nick the wrong way -- he Instagrammed ... "Really Google? This is the way we are kicking off Black History Month #WhoApprovedThis"



Our Google sources tell us they did NOT take down the doodle early due to the moderate backlash generated in part by Cannon's IG. We're told Harriet was up for a full 24-hours ... just like all the other Google doodle tributes.

Question is: why was anyone pissed in the first place? There are plenty of actual photos of Tubman wearing a do-rag.

I see nothing wrong with the pic. I'm pretty sure Harriet Tubman didn't have the time or the opportunity to tend to her hair with African shea butter and ayurvedic oils... People need to stop getting riled up over details and get to the heart of what really matters

oh nick.  Sometimes I see something and it bugs me for whatever reason.  Sometime its like whatever.  This is why I hate twitter because its stream of consciousness /mood rather than a tangible point.  I got nothing on this one.

I fail to see the outrage, but if there is on I'm sure someone here will point it out..

So he's mad that she has a scarf on?

Harriet wasn't rocking 37 inches of unicornian yaki back then. She was making moves and making history
Is he mentally comparing this to a mammy archetype?

The LV logo is a little bit jokey, jokey so he was probably reacting to that.  Harriet n 'nem ain't have no designer rags google.
