Cardi B has had enough of the drama following her Grammy win for best rap album.
Right after she picked up her award, BET sent out a tweet that pitted Cardi B against Nicki Minaj saying, “Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront.”
Cardi B, 26, didn’t take that too well and posted, then deleted, an expletive-filled rant about the network and naysayers. A fan account captured the video.
“It’s not my style for people to put other people down to uplift somebody else,” she said. “That’s not my type and that’s not what I’m with. I don’t support that.”
Then Cardi B turned her attention to her detractors who said she didn’t deserve her award. “I’m seeing a lot of bulls–t today and I saw a lot of s–t last night, and I’m sick of the s–t. I work hard for my motherf—king album.”
The mother of one added that she slept in the studio and worked around the clock — despite being pregnant.
She has since deactivated her Instagram account — perhaps in an effort to distance herself from her critics and trolls.
While Cardi B dodges that drama, she could be facing even more in Houston.
She’s slated to perform at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo on March 1 and nearly 15,000 people have signed a petition asking her to drop out.
An online petition, hosted by Care 2, claims the show abuses animals and cites the rapper’s love for animals as the reason why she should bow out.
“She may not know all the ways animals are being abused to make this Houston event go on though,” reads the petition. “That’s why it’s up to us, her fans, to ask her not to use her name and popularity to support such gruesome behavior.”
The event is also expected to see performances by Kacey Musgraves, Luke Bryan and Camila Cabello.
