Cardi B is showing a defiant stance against those who restrict pornography but hypocritically protect their own sexual sins.

With the release of 'WAP' and her recent provocative Grammy performance, it's no secret that Cardi B isn't one to shy away from showcasing her explicit side, but the rapper has shared a few words for the state government of Utah, regarding a new bill. Cardi B took to her social media to call out the Utah government regarding an anti-porn bill (H.B. 72) that was signed into action earlier in March. The bill will restrict porn viewing through the use of adult content filters on all new mobile devices and tablets that are sold in the state.

According to Snopes and The Associated Press, the mobile devices sold in the state would initially come with adult content filters but the restrictions can be turned off by the device’s owner. Additionally, the bill still doesn’t have a confirmed implementation date to begin taking effect.

Cardi B showed her disdain for the new legislation, while also bringing up the hypocrisy found in Utah for not condemning or taking action against the ritualistic sexual abuse of children by the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (FLDS). “I respect everyone’s religion but Utah restricting porn and not regulating the disgusting things that happen in the FLDS,” she wrote on Twitter. “That cult is disturbing.”

In a follow-up tweet, Cardi B said, "I understand that. I will understand if they restrict porn because the state is very religious however they allow soo much disgusting things out there that they claim is part of their religion and that’s MOLESTING CHILDREN …Look it up!"



 



 

Notable history of offenses

The FLDS is an offshoot of the Mormon Church that still practices polygamy for over a century after the mainstream Mormon Church abandoned it. The Southern Poverty Law Center has described the group as a white supremacist, anti-government, totalitarian cult. It only takes a quick google search, and you will find there are a number of headlines pertaining to the offenses of the church. According to a December 2017 article by Newsweek, a group of Mormon cult leaders was charged with organizing sexual religious rituals with underage girls. The girls were allegedly threatened with damnation if they did not participate and were told that God would destroy them and their families if they revealed the sex rituals to anyone.

In 2019, according to ABC News, multiple families were suing the church and several church officials. The plaintiffs in that lawsuit claimed that the church failed to take steps to protect the plaintiff's children from a teenager who was ultimately convicted of sexually abusing two young children.

Going back to 2016 and a man by the name of Willie Jessop (aka "Thug Willie") who was a security chief, spokesman, and one of the highest-profile members for the FLDS spoke out against them. When asked why he switched sides and opposed the church that he once defended, Jessop said, "Those sons of bitches were raping little girls down in Texas. I knew it and they knew I knew it, and this battle rages on today," according to CNN.
