Fans Grow Frustrated With Cardi B After She Once Again Defends Offset From Cheating Allegations
We all know by now that Cardi B isn’t shy when it comes to talking about her relationship with offset. This time, she was addressing yet another round of cheating allegations that have been leveled at her husband. On Tuesday, Cardi B took to Instagram live to set the record straight about the latest incident in the long line of drama the couple has been involved in.
It all started on Tuesday, when Tekashi 6ix9ine’s girlfriend Sarah “Jade” Wattley revealed on Instagram that she was receiving DMs from Offset, one of which read “miss you fr [sic]”. Wattley, for her part was not impressed, captioning the post: “Your wife Cardi B has an open criminal case. Why are you writing me[?]”. In case you need a refresher, Wattley is one of the women that has accused Cardi of assaulting her outside a strip club.

But according to both Offset and Cardi, the entire DM exchange was a result of his Instagram account being hacked.
After Wattley shared Offset’s DMs with her followers, later that night a series of sexually explicit and offensive Tweets were posted on Offset’s Twitter account. The tweets were so outrageous that it became obvious to many Twitter users that Offset was not the one writing them. The logical conclusion was to believe that, he had, indeed, been hacked.
But, some critics have been quick to point out that the timing of the very out-of-character Tweets from Offset seemed to be a little too convenient.There has even been some speculation that Offset staged the offensive tweets in order to cover up his transgressions. As one observant Twitter user observed: “Offset sent the DM at 1:36AM and [Wattley] posted it at 2:30PM. Then he got “hacked” at 2:35PM…He should have gotten the tweets off right after he sent the DM”.
Cardi, for her part, didn’t seem to be taking the entire debacle too seriously.
The 27-year-old “Clout” rapper got on IG live (along with Offset and Kulture) to address her fans. Looking a little disheveled and more than a little sleepy, Cardi took turns addressing both the camera and her husband. In a statement that seemed to be pretty supportive of her husband and trusting of his actions, she said:
“Hey guys, so as you can see, this guy’s Instagram has been hacked,” she said. “I know babe, you’ve done some dumb shit. Everybody knows he’s done some dumb shit. But come on now, [he’s] not dumb, he’s not crazy, we’ve been so good, we had a sweet weekend, our life has been good, he’s not going to play himself like that. That’s why I’m not going to entertain that, that’s why I’m not getting rowdy. Simple as that”.
This latest scandal is simply another addition to the dramatic chronicles of Offset and Cardi.
Not did Offset admit to being unfaithful to Cardi, but Cardi B felt that she needed to retaliate against the women with whom he cheated with. In August of 2018, Cardi was allegedly involved in a premeditated violent altercation outside Angels NYC Strip Club–an altercation that left Cardi facing two felony counts.
Unsurprisingly, the reaction to Cardi B’s Instagram video defending Offset has been mixed. A lot of people are fed up with Cardi defending a man who has, historically, treated her with little respect.
And as with most scandals that involved Belcalis Almanzar, Twitter has not hesitated to air their thoughts on Cardi’s handling of another cheating scandal.
Because Cardi has been so previously open with her personal life, many people feel invested in her personal life to the degree where they want to comment on it publicly. And a lot of people don’t think Cardi is making the smartest decision by sticking by Offset.
This person believes that Cardi may be defending Offset because she’s tired of the drama.

A lot of us have been in this type of situation before.
This person was not about all the Tweets calling Cardi a “clown” for staying with Offset
Patriarchy makes you think a woman who's being cheated on is a clown and not the ain't shit man. Lol. https://t.co/imscj64H8W

It is frustrating that Cardi is the one that’s being made fun of when Offset is the one who has admitted to being unfaithful before.
This person felt the need to defend their frustration with Cardi:
I think the uproar over people calling Cardi B a clown is hypocritical. I don’t think she’s being called a clown for getting cheated on, she’s a clown in my eyes for misplacing her anger that she should’ve had at Offset towards those women he cheated with

It can be frustrating to see a celebrity you admire so much act in a way that you don’t agree with.
And of course, there were the obligatory memes about the entire situation:
