Cardi B denies dissing Ariana Grande, Doja Cat after #CardiBIsOverParty trends: ‘I'm not a 15-year-old girl’
The trend began when Twitter accounts shared screenshots of her dissing other artists like Lil Kim, Doja Cat, Megan Thee Stallion and Ariana Grande. Allegedly, the Instagram account in the screenshots was a fake one
On Thursday, June 25, yet another “IsOverParty” trend made itself visible on Twitter. This time it was #CardiBIsOverParty. The trend reportedly began when Twitter accounts shared screenshots of the rapper dissing other artists like Lil Kim, Doja Cat, Megan Thee Stallion, and even Ariana Grande. Allegedly, the Instagram account in the screenshots was a fake one, not operated by the rapper.
The Grammy Award-winning rapper even responded to the trend by saying that people started a rumor that she has a fake Instagram account where she spoke about her fellow artists. But when she checked the Instagram account in question, she not only found that it was a locked account, but also that it wasn't followed by her sister or her make-up artist or others she knew, as claimed by many.
She said, “I woke up and I'm seeing that they're trying to make ‘Cardi B Is Cancelled Party.' I'm like what the f***. I'm not doing anything,” she said in an Instagram video. “I'm not a 15-year-old girl to do fake Instagrams. I have a whole life. I have a kid... I don't got time to do s*** like that.”
She addressed posts that claimed she had a feud with Ariana Grande on the alleged Instagram. “Ariana Grande? I don't even have a problem with her. Why would I ever talk about her?” she said. She further said that someone, a "white man," on Twitter claimed that the rapper had allegedly deleted the Instagram account and he took the handle. But she added that one cannot do that, especially if the account has been deleted the same day.
She wrote along with the video, "So people made this ridiculous lie of me on Twitter. I'm glad I pulled up all the receipts and debunked all of it. It's crazy the time and energy people put to try to destroy you but this was just ridiculous. It proves to me though that I intimidate anybody that has any hate towards me that they will find any possible way to break me."
"You can't break me! Bring up my past and everything I said you can't break me! I will be here. I will not run away from social media, I will not be discouraged from my work," she further wrote.
Following the video, fans of the rapper began tweeting under the hashtags #CardiBIsComing and #WeLoveYouCardi. “I do feel really powerful. The fact that I haven’t dropped music in eight months. I haven’t announced none of the projects I been working on. All I been doing is eating food and people have to make fake edits to cancel me it makes me feel like I'M THAT B****!” wrote Cardi B on Twitter.
Despite the clarification and the video, however, some continued to criticize the rapper. A Twitter user said she “was transphobic earlier in her career, made fun of dark skin women and called them monkeys and roaches, admitted to drugging and robbing men, sent bodyguards to beat up strippers her man was cheating on her with, threw a shoe at Nicki Minaj during fashion week. #CardiBisoverparty.”
Another said, “I see #CardiBIsOverParty is trending. Are we finally gonna talk about how she thinks a great type [of] revenge is putting trans women’s lives at risk by tricking men into sleeping with trans women to humiliate them for doing so? Or we're just gonna let that slide?”
