Cardi B is no stranger to making her opinion known. She has popped off on social media on many occasions to give followers a piece of her mind. She is now directing her attention to the subject of queer bairing.
The subject of queer baiting comes up in society every now and then. The act of making someone think you’re LGBTQ only to gain favor is used throughout society. Cardi B isn’t a fan of the term or its use at all. She fired off a tweet on the subject to make sure her voice was heart.
I don’t like this new “queer baiting” word. I feel like it pressure artist to talk about their sexuality or their experiences that they don’t feel comfortable speaking about. If a artist kiss a girl on a video does that means she gotta show videos & text wit wit other women?
Cardi B followed her statement up with a direct message aimed at a Rolling Stone article. This article asked, “Nick Jonas, Ariana Grande, Madonna, and others have long been accused of manipulating labels to their advantage. But what does queerbaiting actually mean?” Cardi’s response was:
“Uuummmm @RollingStone queer baiting? You do know we was trying to hide a whole baby bump right ?Also I’m married to a man but I have express soo much about my bisexuality and my experiences wit girls .All of a sudden ‘queer baiting’ is the new word & people use it to the ground!”
The WAP rapper opened up quite a big conversation with those statements. Now her fans are chiming in to share their own opinions on the subject. We’ll have to see if Rolling Stone responds to Cardi B after she gave their article such unique attention.
