'I was so f***ing mad': Cardi B reveals she was sexually assaulted during magazine shoot
Rapper Cardi B recalled her own #MeToo movement and revealed that she had been sexually assaulted during a magazine photoshoot.
Rapper Cardi B recently confessed that she had been sexually assaulted during a magazine shoot as she recalled her own personal #MeToo experience on an upcoming episode of 'Untold Stories of Hip Hop'.
The 'Bodak Yellow' rapper shared told Angie Martinez on the WE TV network that she would "never forget" her horrifying experience. The 26-year-old revealed that she reported the incident to the owner of the magazine in question though the owner seemed unfazed and ignored the incident. Cardi shared, "I will never forget how I went to shoot for this magazine and the photographer, he was trying to get close to me like, 'Yeah, you want to get in this magazine?'"
"Then he pulled his d*** out," she continued. "I was so f***ing mad, and I was just like, 'This is crazy'." She proceeded to tell the photographer "you're f***ing bugging" before she stormed off the set of the shoot absolutely horrified. It is not known when exactly the incident took place or which magazine the rapper was working with.
She has not revealed the photographer in question. The situation went from bad to worse when Cardi was made aware that no action had been taken against the photographer for his sickening behavior. "You know what’s so crazy? I told the magazine owner and he just looked at me like, 'So? And?'" Cardi added.
The 'Press' rapper continued that when she looks at the #MeToo movement she knows there are girls "from the hood" who had definitely gone through similar experiences. "It happens, really, every day," Cardi shared. When asked whether she faces this type of treatment now, she responded saying, "Oh, hell no. I’ll put you on blast on my Instagram … I’ll f***ing violate".
While giving an interview to Cosmopolitan in 2018, the rapper addressed her experience just months after the Harvey Weinstein abuse scandal had gone public.
