The hip-hop community has a long history with the police. Cardi B is no exception, but she’s not letting her opinion live on Twitter for long.

Cardi B cried out to fund the police in the face of so many others saying that a reallocation of spending is needed to stop systemic racism. B made this very clear in a tweet where she came down on the “defund the police” movement.

“We need cops and that’s facts we just need strict laws for cops. If you shot someone just like civilians you will go to jail that same day, get charge, wait for bond and go to trial.”

“That will make you think twice about shooting anyone.”

Cardi B is no stranger to legal woes. She was arrested in 2018 during a strip club brawl. This tweet naturally brought the ire of many fans who thought that Cardi B would be on their side.

Fans flooded Cardi B’s notifications to make it clear that “defund the police” doesn’t mean that they should be abolished. It just means to spend the money on things that matter instead of creating small armies with war weapons.

Cardi B heard a few tweets like that and then responded with: “Y’all said ‘abolish’ was too harsh and the comprise [sic] was ‘defund’ so what up? Why are your gums still flapping.”

It didn’t take long before Cardi B took down all of the tweets associated with the controversy. She either changed her mind or she was tired of seeing all that logic in her notifications.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
