Cardi B is sick of the critics!
It began on Monday when a social media critic pointed out the Bodak Yellow songstress was referenced in an episode of Love, Victor, a Hulu show that centers around a high schooler struggling with his sexuality. The Twitic wrote:
“Thats crazy, considering the woman is homophobic and transphobic.”
But Bardi disagreed. The momma of one issued a five-point clap back in response, writing:
“How the fuvk am i homophobic or transphobic?have you been to a carribean island where you really see homophobia! Have you dealt with a parent that can’t accept you for your sexuality?i said some ignorant things b4 that apologized for & educated myself on it don’t mean I’m homo… Ya keep using that same 1 video that I apologize for over & over again to call me homophobic & transphobic 1 but never post about the ones where I support the LGBT community which are multiples and the multiple tweets I posted in support.”
The 27-year-old performer, who previously said she identifies as bisexual, continued:
“And I don’t support the LGBT community because I have ‘gay fans’ I support because of the confused feelings I had growing up on is it normal to like girls? I support because I know how hard it was for my gay cousin to come out to his very strict Dominican family…I support because I know the pain my cousin from my mom side which is a Tran ‘ have a f**ked up relationship with her dad for years ! I support because I seen the transitions & the feelings my glam team having during their time with they body transition & my sister…Coming out to my mom & dad religious people as gay.”
The rapper concluded:
“So before ya make it cool to call me homophobic & transphobic… learn what those words mean and research my encouragement to the LGBT community b4 ya motherf**kers even knew who was CardiN.”
Hmmm… okay. Cardi has clearly been exposed to some LGBT-related struggles in her life — but that only makes her past homophobia-related controversy all the more frustrating.
Back in 2018, the artist came to her then-fiancé Offset’s defense after the Migos performer got heat for rapping “I cannot vibe with queers,” during a guest spot on YFN Lucci’s track Boss Life. After Offset gaslit listeners by suggesting he meant the dictionary definition of the word — “lingo that means strange or odd” or “lame people who film you, post it and stalk you,” to be exact (sure, Jan) — Cardi came to his defense, telling fans in a Periscope livestream:
“If that’s a word that you guys said is a bad word for gays, I’ve never even heard that word in the first place… Why don’t y’all educate people? A lot of people are not aware about what’s wrong or right in the LGBT community.”
We’ll give her this: Cardi may not be gay-panic homophobic… but she isn’t exactly LGBTQ ally of the decade either.
What do U think, Perezcious readers?
