Celebrities React To Harriet Tubman Taking Over The $20 Bill & They Couldn't Be Happier About The News
If you haven't heard the news, on Wednesday, Politico reported that the U.S. Treasury will soon announce that Harriet Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. As you may recall, originally, a woman and leader of women's rights was set to replace Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill, but that has now all changed. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew told Politico in July 2015, "We’re not taking Alexander Hamilton off our currency," which definitely appears to be the case now that news of Tubman taking Jackson's place seems to be the case. If that isn't enough, the $5 will also see the addition of civil rights leaders somewhere on the bill. Obviously, this is huge news and celebs thinks so, too. So much so, celebrities are reacting to Harriet Tubman being on the $20 all across social media.

Some are even saying they now have a reason to go to the ATM and will prefer to use $20 bills rather than any other U.S. currency.
