Cardi B recently got some press when she debuted a new episode of Cardi Tries where she tried out marrying same-sex couples. A clip from that episode went out into the Twitterverse and was misconstrued in a huge way. Cardi isn’t one to let fans talk smack, so she had to weigh in.
The WAP rapper said to Raven-Simone during her Facebook Watch series that she doesn’t like how people saying they are nonbinary has become a trend. The discussion was quite deep and Cardi B was speaking candidly, but the clip that went viral did not represent the point she was trying to make.
The short clip that was snipped out of a much longer discussion which went viral featured Cardi saying:
Like people say they’re nonbinary out of nowhere and it’s like, I need to know why you feel, what you went through where you feel like you’re nonbinary or something. It’s just that sometimes I just go that people shouldn’t take words and use it as a trend. Like, it’s a trendy thing to do. I appreciate when people have a story.”
One fan fired off a reply to that video where they said, “post the WHOLE clip you weird bitch! she literally said not everyone has to explain themselves bc every LGBT person has their own journey. Like you bitches are DUMB.” Cardi B read this fan’s reply and she voiced her own take.
Lol thank you ….It’s the new trend on twitter to cut clips with a misleading caption .I don’t know why.
Cardi B isn’t going to let anyone make it seem like she shades one bit of the LGBTQ community. Not only does she love them, but they also buy her records in mass numbers. There’s a reason why she’s a favorite in that community as well.
