It appears the feud between Cardi B and Azealia Banks has just got pretty messy, prompting Cardi B to deactivated her Instagram account, and to make matters worse, her Twitter account is now private.
The fight started after Banks appeared on The Breakfast Club on Friday and nasty things about Cardi, calling her everything from an “illiterate, untalented rat” to a “caricature of a black woman.”
Referencing Beyonce’s 2016 album, Lemonade, Banks told the radio show’s host:
“Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women’s culture was really reaching an all-time high, there was just this really, really, really intelligent conversation going on nationally and then everything just kind of changed and then it was like Cardi B.”
“I’m just talking about this caricature of a black woman that black women themselves would never be able to get away with. Like, if my spelling and grammar was that bad, I’d be canceled. If Nicki Minaj spelled like that, we would be ragging on her all day,” Banks continued.
When news of this got to Cardi B, the superstar quickly took to her Instagram to responded to Banks’ offensive comments.Shortly after, Cardi B deleted her entire Instagram account.
“I’m from the hood. I speak how I speak I am how I am. I did not choose to be famous people choose me! People followed me on Instagram and the people gave me a platform to introduce my talent,” Cardi wrote. “I never asked to be a example or a role model I don’t want to change my ways because I’m famous that’s why I just mind my business. This is coming from a woman that bleached her skin but want to advocate. GOODBYE. Im not apologizing or kill myself because of who I am.”
We remember this isn’t the first time Cardi B and Azealia Banks have battled on social media.In September, Banks called Cardi a “poor man’s Nicki Minaj,” and accused her of using a ghostwriter for her hit song “Bodak Yellow.” In response, Cardi posted a video of Banks dancing to “Bodak Yellow” in a club.
