It seems that we all miss the hilarious one-liners that Cardi B drops on Twitter, as the rapper tweeted yesterday that she is leaving the social media site.
“Okay, I’m off Twitter for a few days,” she tweeted. “Lots of fun.”
Deze aankondiging komt nadat de rapper onder vuur was gekomen toen ze een video van haar vertelde dat ze drugs gebruikte en mannen beroofde terwijl ze als stripper opdook.
De video is oorspronkelijk drie jaar geleden geplaatst als reactie op iemand die zei dat Cardi haar succes niet verdiende. Ze had gereageerd door de lengtes te omschrijven waar ze studietijd begon te krijgen en het als een rapper te maken.
Fan reactions to the video
As soon as the video surfaced, fans were quick to jump on Twitter and came for the rapper.
“Cardi B, nobody told you to be perfect, don’t be a f-g idiot,” wrote a user. “Literally no one would have known that you were drugging and robbing men until YOU decided to brag about it and expose it to the public. Your loud mouth is the only thing that stands in your own way.”
Others compared her with singer R. Kelly who was recently accused of sexually abusing young women.
“R. Kelly was accused, admitted nothing, and perhaps even innocent, but the whole world wants him to be canceled. Cardi B even gave a public confession of her crimes, but no one cancels her … # SurvivingCardiB, “another person wrote.
Others called the double standard between men and women in the industry.
“Ok #Reebok and #ReebokClassic, keep that same energy, how do you keep silent about #CardiB actually drugging and raping men, but fk about #rickross for dropping a make-believe pill in a drink in a song and call him a rapist, “wrote a person referring to the reaction Rick Ross received for his song” UOENO, “where he said he put drugs in a woman’s champagne without them knowing it.
But in real Cardi form, she had an answer for all her haters.
Cardi B’s apology
When the video reappeared, Cardi took her social media to explain herself and apologize.
“So I see on social media that a life I did 3 years ago is popping up again,” she wrote. “A life in which I spoke about things I had to do in my past, right or wrong, that I felt I had to do to make a living.”
She blamed the culture of hip hop.
“I am part of hip hop culture where you can talk about where you came from, talk about the wrong things you had to do to get where you are. There are rappers who glorify murder, violence, drugs and robbery. Crimes they feel that they must do to survive. “
“I have never glorified the things that I have raised in that life. I never even put these things in my music because I am not proud of it.”
She went on and explained why she did what she did.
“I made the choices I made at the time because I had very limited options,” she continued. “I was blessed to get out of it, but not so many women.”
She subtitled the photo with the message that everything she could do in the future focused on being better for herself, her future and her family.
