Cardi B seems to be one of the newer artists that would rather keep the peace than perpetrate violence with anyone, but people seem to “poke the bear” as it pertains to the Bronx rapper. Since the debut of the rapper, Cardi B has historically tried her best to stay out of the way of other artists as she continues her ascent. However, there are those that would rather stifle her ascent.
While most who have been following the former Love and Hip Hop: New York star has seen her growth from her initial social media introduction until now, some choose to ignore it. There also is the group of folks who choose to ignore the imminent growth that Cardi B eludes that she has experienced. One person who continuously targets the Cardi B as a constant target is Conservative pundit/longtime enemy, Candace Owens.
Candace Owens and Cardi B’s feud seemingly started when Candace Owens, like many conservatives, disagreed on her artist’s subject matter. Besides that, she felt the rapper/entertainer should be disqualified from interviewing/speaking to someone who could (at the time) potentially hold such high power.
“It is one of the biggest insults if Black Americans are not insulted by the fact that Joe Biden, who has been hiding in his basement for the entire year, made an appearance because he was going to do an interview with Cardi B. Do we do we have nothing better to offer?” Candace Owens mentioned in an interview with Ben Shapiro.
Since most black people didn’t have the spine to admit that @benshapiro was 100% correct about @iamcardib and how her music and platform contributes to the disintegration of black culture and values…here you go. #WAP #SundaySpecial pic.twitter.com/q5QxxX9G4e— Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) September 6, 2020
In the midst of criticizing President Biden for his decision to be interviewed by Cardi B, she continued, “Look at Cardi B’s Instagram. You see she has millions of followers and you think, okay this is an illiterate person and if I appeal to this illiterate person and she does ‘Okkkurr’ like she literally did in the middle of this interview, they think she’s cool, he’s hip just by sitting here and taking this interview. Black people vote for me’ – it’s basically saying, ‘Black people you are stupid.’”
Perhaps Candace Owens’ words did not hit the Bronx rapper initially, but it was her later tweets that would turn the heat up even more. “You are hurting Black America when you stay on a platform and you pretend to care about Black men when you ask Joe Biden ‘What are we going to do about these Black men dying?’ He should have asked you back what are Black men going to do about Black men dying,” CandaceOwens questioned. “So you’re a fraud if you’re sitting here making it seem like you are you’re afraid of police officers. Are you afraid of your husband [Offset]?’ You’re way more likely to be k*lled by your husband than you are by a police officer and you know that.”
Candace Owens then referenced the hottest songs of 2020, “WAP”, saying: “You keep saying you have a number one song, it means s**t. Nobody cares about your [WAP].” Not one to take insults sitting down, Cardi B responded with some hits of her own. “I seriously don’t even know how me and Candice [Owens] started arguing. Just a couple of weeks ago her man was playing Wap in his Trump boat party. I hate arguing wit people. Since I got new followers here STREAM WAP. Its Endorse my Melania,” she said.
