Fierce

A Fan Tried To Troll Cardi B, Then The Rapper Body-Shamed Her

Cardi B is one of those celebs that we can always count on to speak her mind. In the past, she has boldly spoken up to strike down the cheating rumors against her husband, Offset. Recently, she denounced Tekashi 6ix9ine’s claims that she was a member of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. In the past, she has also expertly shut down trolls who have committed on everything from her body to her talent.

However, this time, a clapback she made towards a trolling Instagram user is getting Cardi called out for fatphobic language.

On Tuesday, the rapper turned actress harshly replied to an Instagram troll who was bashing Cardi’s skills as a songwriter, particularly collaboration with other writers on some of her most popular tracks.

“Imagine needing help on a song like money bag, bodak yellow, & every other verse in any song… & getting called nothing above an entertainer,” the Instagram user wrote on a post Cardi made on her social media account. “LMAO a joke. stick to the movies luv.”

In retaliation, Cardi commented back to the woman, “Stick to your diet.” Supposedly, the Instagram user had made a post about being on a diet and working to lose weight and that is what Cardi was referencing when she spoke out against her trolling.

Many fans and critics immediately called out Cardi for the comments, calling them fatphobic and problematic.

Some comments pointed out the difficulty that plus-sized people have in our society. Fat-phobia is rampant in the beauty and fashion industries. The diet and weight lose industry is a multi-billion dollar conglomerate that feeds off of societal desires towards thinness. Even the healthcare system is skewed against fat people. Stigma against weight often prevents adequate diagnosis and care to plus-sized individuals.

Further comments mentioned that the popular rapper has millions of followers on Instagram and Twitter. By calling the troll out directly on Instagram and making an issue of her weight loss, it could be said that Cardi made her a target of all of her defensive fans.

Others pointed out that, as a public figure, Cardi is a role model and should be more careful with her words.

As a famous person, Cardi is held to a certain standard and there’s an obligation with that. As this Twitter user pointed out, the rapper’s own use of plastic surgery makes her comments sort of hypocritical. Many critics explained that Cardi should simply block trolling comments like these and be the bigger person in these situations.

Cardi was quick to defend herself and her response against what she described as “hate comments.”

Cardi produced receipts on Twitter showing the history of abusive messages that the Instagram user has sent the rapper in the past. She went on to question why she is being called fatphobic if she just told the user to focus on her diet instead of trolling.

“Wtf is fatphobic,” the “Bodack Yellow” rapper asked in her tweet. “People are so soft now and days. How ya going to survive a lunch table?” Cardi tweeted in response to critics denouncing her comments.

Despite the many fans and critics who condemned Cardi’s comments, just as many fans supported the rapper.

Some fans defended Cardi’s right to defend herself against trolling comments. The common sentiment was that if someone could dish it out, they should be ready to handle the criticism themselves. Others suggested that comments like the one Cardi responded to comes from jealousy and that basically the woman was a hater.

Regardless of whether Cardi was in the right or the wrong, this is another example of how social media is quick to hold us accountable for what we say. If nothing else, an unwise tweet or act of trolling is always sure to create some major drama.

You may have heard of Olivia Rodrigo, the 17-year-old Disney Channel actress who has recently take the music industry by storm with the success of her debut single, “Driver’s License”.

Well you wouldn’t be the only one who is thinking about her. Recently, Cardi B tweeted about the viral song, namely lamenting over the fact that she does not have her driver’s license.

On Tuesday, Cardi tweeted out her frustration about the fact that she has to rely on other people to fulfill her late-night McDonald’s cravings.

“Just like that girl [who] wrote a song about getting her driver’s license, Imma write a song about the struggle of not having a drivers license,” she wrote. “I really wanted my McDonald’s at 4am last night instead of today, but I couldn’t so I felt asleep hungry.” More relatable words have never been spoken, tbh.

Shocked that the Bronx-born rapper even knows who she is, Rodrigo tweeted a response back at Cardi.

“Girl i will pick u up and take u wherever u wanna go,” Rodrigo wrote back.

Cardi, for her part, seemed excited to find a driver to take her on late-night McDonald’s runs. She wrote back: “Yaaayyy!!! Let’s go to McDonald’s and get happy meals!”

Cue the influx of Twitter stans demanding a future Olivia Rodrigo x Cardi B collab.

Olivia Rodrigo is just as surprised about “Driver’s License” success as everyone else is.

Rodrigo recently told Billboard that this past week, when “Driver’s License” shot to No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart has been “the weirdest week of my whole life.”

Rodrigo was a relatively unknown Disney Channel star on Disney+’s “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” before this song hit the airwaves. Now she’s a pop sensation.

“So many people that I look up to have reached out and expressed their love for the song, which is absolutely surreal,” she told Billboard. But I truly am just the same 17-year-old girl, doing statistics homework in my bedroom.”

While many people are wondering what Rodrigo’s background is, she is proudly half-Filipino.

While some people have mistakenly called Olivia Rodriguez Latina, she is actually of Filipino descent, just like previous “High School Musical” star, Vanessa Hudgens. Just like Latin American countries, the Philippines were colonized by Spain–that is why so many people of Filipino descent have Spanish-sounding last names.

Rodrigo has talked at length about her cultural and familial roots. “My great-grandfather immigrated here from the Philippines when he was just a teenager. He’s my grandma’s dad, and my grandpa is also Filipino as well,” Rodrigo revealed in an interview with the Center for Asian American Media back in 2018.

“My dad grew up in a house where they were always making Filipino food, his grandpa always spoke Tagalog. All of those traditions have trickled down to our generation.”
