Cardi B Deletes Instagram Amid Feud with Azealia Banks

Cardi B has deleted her Instagram account amid a feud with fellow artist Azealia Banks.

In a recent interview, Azealia called out Cardi for not using proper grammar in her social media posts. She also implied that Cardi is setting back black women’s culture after Beyonce brought it to a peak in 2016 during the Lemonade era.

“Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women’s culture was really reaching an all-time high,” Azealia said in an interview with The Breakfast Club. “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,” she added.

In a post that was later deleted from her Instagram, Cardi responded to the quotes.

“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,” she 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.”

    That’s a low blow. Cardi is super self conscious about her accent. My friends, neighbors, and family all have different accents that make it kinda hard to understand, but that’s what makes this country great..all the accents and fun ways of speaking. And all the culture that comes with it. If you read that article about her in GQ (https://www.gq.com/story/cardi-b-invasion-of-privacy-profile), you’d know she’s pretty damn smart. Only the intelligent study the past for the sake of the future.

    Wannabe witch/chicken slaughterer/psycho Azaelia Banks just wants to cause trouble. I’m sad that Cardi B fell for that.

    I was gonna say I was surprised these two aren’t “besties” since they are both ratched ghetto trash, but then I remembered women in that industry stay relevant by feuding and dissing each other in their “music”.

    They are both flawed women but at least they aren’t relying on a man to pay their bills, and for that, they are both winners.

  • SaraJ

    Cardi shouldn’t have deleted her Instagram. She shouldn’t have even responded though, and no one would’ve even heard anything

    Azealia is GARBAGE. fuck that bitch

  • quartzoup

    Lmao it’s not up to you.

  • lolo13

    I agree but I see she’s very senstive, maybe she can’t handle the scrutiny. Plus she’s pregnant and wants to stay away from drama.

  • Truthonitsway

    The jealous enemy wants to block Cardi’s blessings.
    Don’t let habitual bully interfere, cut-off communications from fans.
