In case you missed it, Cardi B and Candace Owens are currently feuding on Twitter. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper and the conservative commenter began facing off after Owens appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox News to bash Cardi’s “WAP” performance with Megan Thee Stallion at the 2021 Grammys.
“This seems like an attack on American values, American traditions, and you’re actually actively trying to make children aspire to things that are grotesque,” Owens said. “We are celebrating perversity in America.”
This isn’t the first time “WAP,” which stands for “wet ass pussy,” has been criticized by conservatives offended by two women embracing their sexuality. But in true Cardi B style, she responded with a joke, tweeting, “We made Fox News guys!”
“Matter fact I’m just going to thank Candy,” she continued. “She put my performance on Fox News giving it more views that boosted the views on YouTube and is counting towards my streams and sales. STREAM UP AND WAP. REMEMBER GROWN PARENTS ONLY YOU CAN MONITOR WHAT YOUR KIDS WATCH NO1 ELSE.”
Owens responded, telling Cardi to “do better,” which set off a series of back and forth on Twitter. At one point, Owens threatened to get her legal team involved after Cardi made claims about her husband, George Farmer. Later, Cardi quoted a tweet pointing out that all the discussion around “WAP” is a distraction from the recent hate crime shooting in Atlanta that left eight people, most of them Asian women, dead.
