That cast is certainly an interesting combination of names.
I still can't believe the shy girl I went to high school with (Lili Reinhart) is now starring in movies with the likes of Cardi B. Life is fucking wild ya'll.
I'm ready for Julia Stiles' comeback.
ew jesus gross
New headline: "The Taylor Swift of rap?"
How quickly would she have been canceled right now if she was a guy?
Are you claiming reverse sexism? People on Twitter will probably tear her up over this whereas male rappers who have committed crimes are rarely “cancelled” because of them.
I honestly don’t see the problem. This is being twisted to make her out to be some awful person when she was obviously out there trying to survive.
If anything that video makes me appreciate her more.
I mean, nothing in that video makes me dislike her. It’s nothing new. Trina was rapping about trapping and robbing dudes at gunpoint 20 years ago, so.....fuck the naysayers.
Bardi just can’t stop winning and people are big mad.
Also to go back to the initial question, we wouldn’t even be having this discussion if she were a man. Men in hip-hop make far worse claims than this. Only difference is that Cardi isn’t lying about how she came up.
She had to do what she had to do. Many other rappers (male and female) have openly done similar things and been fine.
All the pearl clutching likely coming from people who truly buy into the images of drugs and sex work they see on TV as this glamorous, bad ass, neon-lit lifestyle when it is really dangerous and grimy, and that doesn’t even account for the toll it takes on one’s mental health. Even watching that video you can see Cardi is torn up about what she’s had to do because nobody was supporting her – she’s not bragging about it. The way people are twisting this and shaming her is really gross.
We been knew? This isn't really news...well maybe for those who just discovered her?
It’s mainly being spread by Nicki stans. If I see “sympathy & payola” one more time...
I’m seeing a lot of ‘if this were a man talking about drugging women they would be CANCELLED!!!’ from stans on twitter and like....yes drugging people and taking their money is obviously wrong but can we not conflate that with sexual assault? That would be great.
I'd have to assume on top of ordering an attack on those bartenders months ago, people are just adding this situation to a list as if it's the same case or "news". While nothing has changed from my personal view, the distaste isn't exactly unjustifiable or unreasonable. Any crime will warrant a reaction.
