Cardi B Gets Slammed for Calling Dark-Skinned Black Women ‘Roaches’
“Love & Hip Hop” star Cardi B is brushing off criticism stemming from a Twitter user reposting tweets of her calling dark-skinned Black women roaches. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper posted a video after June’s BET Awards as evidence of her innocently using the term “roach” on herself. It was accompanied by a series of tweets defending her actions.
In one tweet that has since been removed, the star admitted she made the reference, “along ass time ago,” according to The BoomBox. “I’m not going to be getting crucified every time n—– want to defame me f— outta here,” she wrote.The tweets gained traction Wednesday, Aug. 9, when a Twitter user named Jumah posted them.
