Cardi B Blasted For “Cockroach” Tweets
Belcalis Almanzar, better known as Cardi B, recently defended herself against allegations that she’s racist towards black women. The Bronx rapper/reality star was recently called out on social media by someone who pulled up old tweets of her clapping back at fans.
In them, Cardi calls the ladies she’s beefing with “cockroaches”, those ladies also just happen to be darker skinned women.

Check out thread on twitter (its longer) indeed we as Black women dont need a man to address this issue for us but pay attention more to the message than the messenger. I like #CardiB but wrong is wrong. She has been criticized for saying tranny she apologized for that but many sisters were waiting for her to apologize & address/realize the colorism issues she has. However her response was a poor idc. She needs to ask herself why she only addresses Black dark women online as roaches never light ones or dark men. We not looking to hate on her so this critique isnt rooted in hatred for Cardi B therefore looking for anything to bring her down. Nah we wanna see her win but again wrong is wrong. P.s using the excuse of oh its a new york thing (calling other women roaches) is poor so being ignorant is a ny thing then? Nah learn from this
Cardi is now adamant that the term “cockroaches” is just a New York term and NOT racist. She’s even providing proof with a video of her calling herself the term.
She also added this about the devil and her haters.
Do YOU think Cardi was being racist??? It seems a bit far fetched for the regular degular shmegular girl from the Bronx.
More from the “Bodak Yellow” rapper on the flip.
Cardi was also recently called out for an old tweet where she called someone a “tranny.” She previously apologized for using the transphobic term.
