Cardi B and her sister Hennessy Carolina are being sued for defamation after they allegedly labeled a group of beachgoers in the Hamptons as “racist MAGA supporters.” Peter Caliendo, Pauline Caliendo, and Manuel Alarcon are suing the ‘WAP’ singer, Hennessy and her girlfriend, Michelle Diaz, alleging that they defamed them by branding them as racists during an argument at the Hamptons earlier this month.

TMZ reported that the plaintiffs claimed that the group was enjoying their time at Smith Point beach with their families when Hennessy approached them with rage, "spitting, insulting and threatening" them just because one of them was wearing a MAGA hat. The group also alleges that Cardi B, Hennessy, and Michelle edited the video of the feud on the beach and posted it on social media to malign them.

They alluded to the video that Cardi posted on September 6 from the Hamptons in support of her sister. There she claimed that her sister Hennessy was harassed by Trump supporters on a beach trip as her sister and her friend were an "Afro-Hispanic gay couple" that possibly irked others. 
Cardi B tweeted the video of the incident with the caption, “You wanna know why joe gotta talk to me Candice cause I have the #1 song & yet my sister can’t go to the beach in the Hampton’s wit out trump supporters harassing cause they were by themselves & Santa Claus was harassing my sis GF all because they are an Afro/Hispanic gay couple.” 


The video did not show who shot it but it shows two men in shorts of whom one is wearing a MAGA cap and a woman in a bikini. The lady is shown gesturing a middle finger to the one who shot the video. The three people and the one who shot it were seen embroiled in a heated spat of words cursing one another. The one who shot the video also calls the woman in a bikini as ‘Karen’ and says that she will put the video online to expose the feud. However, reports suggest the video was shot by Hennessy.
Further narrating the incident that led to the feud, Cardi tweeted, “Nooooo that big pink man was harassing my sister girlfriend to move her car for no reason and then my sister came there had a back and forth and they stood quit when she Wip that phone out. They was harassing 2 Women! Ya going to catch the right f**kin one !” 


As per TMZ, Hennessy's side of the story was that they were targeted because they "saw us parking here and we were speaking Spanish and we're mixed." After the defamation case against Cardi B and her sister, Hennessy made headlines, many social media users took to Twitter to slam them. Many have alleged that Cardi B just tagged innocent people as racists. Others blasted her for calling ‘White guys’ as ‘pink-skinned’.

Some said that Cardi B's sister initiated the feud. A Twitter user slammed the 'Be Careful' singer and wrote, “Cardi tryna be a show off for the camera calling innocent people ‘Racist MAGA supporters’ That girl is delusional as hell.” Another wrote, “This Cardi B lawsuit's a decent example of it. People just slandered as racists because of an argument in a parking lot over a MAGA hat. All evidence points that Cardi's sister initiated it.” A third concurred, “I like how you can call others racist when you call white guys that pink skin guy. It's amazing how the rich have 0 class. All you have to do is have some class. Go spread more hate and cause more tension. I know it's tough living in a first world country with a lot of money.” Meanwhile, some users said that Hennessy lied about the incident. “This guy just break it down for y’all 2 weeks ago! Cardi B's sister is LYING about the Trump supporterS altercation!” wrote a user. However, some showed solidarity towards Cardi and her gang for standing up against racism. “Cardi B. stood up to MAGA racists recently. Way to go Cardi!”
