People love Cardi B because she speaks her mind without a filter. Ever since Bodak Yellow launched her career as a rap superstar, she has shared her views on everything from strip club etiquette to post-pregnancy breasts to the government closing the Trump border wall. (Senator Cardi B, we stand!)
However, the 26th birthday of the 26-year-old candid does not enchant the world as usual. During the weekend, Cardi went on Instagram Live to talk to her fans and revealed that she is planning to write a book about her life. Then she went against her critics in a vulgar tirade and made a shocking confession: during her hard scrabble days as a stripper, she used drugs to rap and rob men.
“I had to go strip, I had to go,” Oh yes, do you want me f ** ck? Yes yes yes, let’s go back to this hotel, “and I drugged up and robbed them, “said Cardi B.” That’s what I used to do. “
The video spread over social media and many people condemned the Bronx MC. “Cardi B is a HADLESS WOMAN AND IS A PAINTING OF MAN, HOW THAT YOU RAPE EVERYONE THEN WRITE TO SYMPATHY,” wrote a Twitter user. A second person agreed and added: “People defend her because she is a woman, they use a childhood trauma as an excuse, they are a stand or they think it is an attempt to ‘defame’ her.”
A third person commented: “If a man did this or even one of these, everyone would go crazy.” The double standard is insane, men do justice and lock her up! “And a fourth Twitter user claimed:” It’s about how the # MeToo movement quickly [rightly] condemns or confirms people of predatory behavior, but becomes silent when a woman is accused or confirmed that she is the predator. Bill Cosby, 6ix9ine and R. Kelly, stick with Cardi B. “
However, it should be noted that many of these angry critics have Nicki Minaj photos in their backgrounds and / or profile photos. As you probably remember, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj have been arguing with each other since last year, when Cardi’s debut album, Invasion of Privacy, overtook Minaj’s fourth studio album, Queen in both rave reviews and commercial sales. The beef did not result in direct diss-tracks, but it did result in Cardi throwing a shoe on Minaj during a Fashion Week party. (She missed.)
Then in February Grammys, Cardi B became the first female rapper to win Best Rap album of the year. The project also scored a nomination for the best album of the year, which is a rarity for rap. Meanwhile, Queen received zero nominations and Nicki Minaj has never won a Grammy, despite the fact that he is extremely talented. So you can see why her fanatic ‘Barbz’ would seize the opportunity to hit Cardi B on social media.
The Cardi fans were not eager to defend her alleged actions, but they had no idea how to make a comparison with monsters like R. Kelly. “I never said that her actions were not punishable under criminal law,” a Twitter user explained. “R Kelly is filthy and in no way has form or form compared to being a serious abuser and pedophile (he) with Cardi B or anyone like her.” Another simply said: “F *** away here. Fuck away here #SurvivingCardiB, leave @iamcardib live”
