What really happened?
As per a Daily Mail report, two men and a woman could be seen in the footage when Hennessy had a huge feud over parking space. While one man donned a "Make America Great Again" cap, another woman engaged in a heated back-and-forth with Hennessy at a beach. In the video, when one of them told Hennessy to "get your vehicle out of here," she asked the person to "get the f**k out of my face!"
The skirmish didn't end there. Hennessy yelled at them, "Ok, don't EVER come to a female [unintelligible] while I'm not here," and told the two men to "back the f**k off [her] car." After the unsettling incident, Hennessy posted the entire video on her Instagram Story and then in a post captioned: "My girl and I was having a peaceful time at the beach while they gathered up planning on how to harrass us by my car! We was minding our business!"
She shared the after-feud video with her 6.8 million followers and wrote: "As soon as he saw me run up with my phone recording them he started smiling acting like he wasn’t harassing!" Later, she thanked all her supporters and criticized the rampant racism in the country. "This f**king racism and police brutality still going on in 2020 is f**king insane!!!!" she said in one Instagram Story, adding, "I can't believe [the people in the video] are openly harassing a lesbian and being racist while wearing a Maga hat literally super confident knowing the president is permitting and encouraging them to yell at people 'go back to your country'."
Who is Hennessy Carolina?
Wondering who is she? Apart from being Cardi's sister, here's all we know about her. Born as Hennessy Carolina Almanzar on December 22, 1995, in New York, she and Cardi — whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar — apparently settled for alcohol-inspired nicknames (Cardi is short for Bacardi and her name was after the popular cognac). The 24-year-old was first seen on VH1's reality show 'Love & Hip Hop: New York' Season 7 and made quite a mark with her appearance along with Cardi B. As per a Cheat Sheet report, she has worked as a model, talented makeup artist and partnered with Boohoo for the Boohoo x Hennessy Carolina collection.
As per a Page Six report, she came out as a bisexual in 2017 after she shared an old Instagram image of herself kissing her girlfriend in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. In a lengthy post, she wrote: "If you can’t accept the B In (L)LGBTQ..(L)lesbian(G)ay(B)BISEXUAL(T)transgender (Q)ueer, then please don’t speak up for the community if you can’t fully understand ALL of us!" Although Cardi and Hennessy are four years apart, they are pretty close to each other and love to travel together. In fact, before Cardi’s daughter, baby Kulture, was born, Hennessy accidentally revealed her gender on Instagram.
Who is she dating?
As per a Vogue report, Hennessy has been in a relationship with her girlfriend, Michelle Diaz, for more than three years now after they met on the Internet. “I was on my Explore page, and I just saw somebody with a nice outfit on and with nice bone structure, but her hat was covering half of her eyes. I turned to my sister, and I was like, ‘This is a cute girl on Instagram!’” Hennessy told the outlet, adding, “Right away, I was like, ‘This is my wife.’”
Not only do the two share two dogs and an apartment, but also love to wear each other's clothes. “She always borrows my big tees. Other than that, she really can’t [borrow anything] because she’s really short!” Diaz told Vogue. The two love each other's company and experiment with new outfits every day. “We like to eat and shop,” says Hennessy. “We have hella fun.” Not just that, they also revealed “we are different characters every day,” says Hennessy, adding, “It’s a runway for us.”
Well, after the recent altercation, we hope Hennessy's words are taken seriously and such attacks come to a full stop soon.
