For better or for worse, we can all admit that Cardi B has never had a filter!
The outspoken rapper drew the ire of critics once again after using a racist Asian slur to describe her sister, Hennessy Carolina‘s eye shape.
The backlash began after Cardi recently shared a composite photo of what her daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus, would look like as an adult. However, things got interesting when a fan noted how the image looked like a combination of the star’s husband Offset and her younger sister.
In the since-deleted Instagram post and exchange in the comments section, the Bodak Yellow songstress agreed with the user and wrote:
“I think cause Hennessy got ch–ky eyes like offset and so [does] KK. It’s the only think [sic] I could think off [sic].”
Just a quick PSA: that word is never okay to use intentionally or not. Read that sentence again as many times as you need to. Eagle-eyed social media users caught wind of that comment and slammed Bardi for her careless use of the historically and overtly racist word. But instead of apologizing, the Grammy winner feigned ignorance and basically told everyone to f–k off! She tweeted then deleted:
“I didn’t know that ch–ky eyes was a slur like wtfff I DONT KNOW EVERYTHING !! We don’t even use that as a insult and I didn’t use it as a insult.”
The Bronx native added she was “sick of the internet.” Well, the thing is, people might be sick of her, too…
