Cardi B can be out.
The “Bartier Cardi” rapper deleted her Instagram on Saturday (as well as also also made her Twitter private) after going head to head with Azealia Banks in a social media feud.
The women exchanged harsh words with each some other after Banks called out Cardi during an interview with The Breakfast Club on Friday, referring to her as an “illiterate, untalented rat” as well as also also a “caricature of a black woman.”
“Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women’s culture was truly reaching an all-time high,” Banks said during her interview, referring to Beyoncé’s Lemonade. “There was just This particular truly, truly, truly intelligent conversation going on nationally as well as also also then everything just kind of changed as well as also also then the item was like Cardi B.”
Cardi responded in an Instagram comment captured by The Shade Room, writing, “I’m through the hood. I speak how I speak. I am how I am. I did not choose to be famous — people choose me… I never asked to be an example or a role product. I don’t want to change my ways because I’m famous,” before calling out Banks for bleaching her skin.
The comment set Banks off, as she targeted Cardi’s pregnancy as well as also also relationship with Offset. “You’re illiterate, you’re baby mama 4/5 to [a] man who has women crawling out of the woodworks with kids,” she replied. “You’re a real life episode of Maury sis. … The fact which your overall statistic-ness can be being merited as success can be a clear indication which the suits backing you are using you as a weapon against black women’s consciousness as well as also also culture.”
Instead of keeping the argument going, Cardi chose to delete her account — although not before writing one last scathing message.
“The difference between you as well as also also me can be which I’ve never pretended to be something I am not! I’ve made the item to where I am for being myself as well as also also staying true to which,” she wrote.
“You think because someone uses a lot of big words as well as also also long sentences, which makes them smart!? How smart are you if you don’t know which the meaning of illiterate means to not know how to read or write? I can do both, as well as also also speak two languages fluently,” Cardi continued. “Just because I mix a few words up, forget to use commas or misspell a few words doesn’t make me illiterate as well as also also doesn’t make me stupid. as well as also also because I laugh a little harder or talk a little louder doesn’t make me a caricature!”
“I wish you find your peace in your own heart as well as also also reason in your own mind,” the rapper concluded. “Pray for your own success before you pray for the downfall of others!”
Cardi’s feud with Banks comes days after she appeared to patch things up with Nicki Minaj at the 2018 Met Gala. See more from the video below.
