YouTuber Tasha K might have landed herself n big trouble after not complying with the court. The YouTuber has lost the defamatory case against Cardi B recently. However, it looks like she isn’t ready to delete the videos she made about the rapper.
On Thursday, journalist Dennis Byron jumped on his Twitter account to report that Cardi B’s attorneys are mounting a legal response to Tasha. This is because she has not removed the offending videos about the WAP rapper. Bryon would later hop on his Instagram Live to further explain Tasha K’s purported refusal to not take down the Cardi B videos.
Breaking! The Blogger Lady aka #TashaK defies Federal Court Order by failing to remove defamatory statements about @iamcardib #CardiB Legal teams mounts a response. She is facing possible prison time and financial sanctions. This is a developing story.
Back in January, Tasha K, real name Latasha Kebe, was found guilty of two counts of slander plus one count each of libel and invasion of privacy, reported XXLMag. Kebe was ordered to pay the “Up” rapper $1.5 million in punitive damages and $1,338,753.47 in litigation expenses. Additionally, she also was ordered to pay for Cardi’s medical expenses, which were reduced from $250,000 to $25,000.
In response, Tasha K posted a video on her YouTube channel called “Tasha K’s Official Statement on The Verdict” The YouTuber called the ruling “extremely prejudicial” and blasted “the machine” for bullying her. The frustration was real as the full amount Tasha has to cough up neared around $3 million.
The 39-year-old YouTuber vowed to legally fight back and take her case all the way to the Supreme Court. “This is my life and I will spend my life fighting for my livelihood and our First Amendment right as human beings,” she said. Justice has been served since then but Tasha hasn’t complied with the it.
If she fails to delete the videos from her YouTube account, this might lead to more complications. It would be extremely immature of her to keep fighting against the verdict without concrete reasons.
