Cardi B took to Twitter on July 14 to call out the behavior of some people on social media, and her comments have people divided.
The “WAP” rapper kicked off a series of tweets by writing, “White twinks on this app are weird. You don’t dictate people’s action.” While many supported or laughed off the message, some in her feed were shocked and upset by her statement. “idk what everyone has decided Twink means in 2021 but if it’s still the same as 2010, I’m out because slurs and generalizations are not it,” wrote one follower.
Others took Cardi’s side.
Rather than backpedaling on her statement, Cardi doubled down. “I said what I said and I’m not taking it back!!! Ya love to hide behind black female artist pictures on your avi and be the ones saying the most disrespectful shit about women & dictating their moves and start wars between female artist fans ALWAYS!,” she wrote.
Again, fans spoke out both against and in support of the rapper's comment.
While the rapper seems to be done with the subject, the controversy led to her trending on the social media platform. Which is perfect timing for her teased announcement later today, which is rumored to be a collaboration with Normani.
