Cardi B is addressing accusations.

The 27-year-old “Bodak Yellow” rapper spoke out on Twitter on Thursday (June 25) amid allegations that she runs a secret Instagram account (or “finsta”), allegedly talking bad about other female artists, resulting in “Cardi B Is Canceled” and “Cardi B Is Over Party” trends on Twitter.

“So I woke up…I’m seeing that they’re trying to make this Cardi B Is Canceled Party…I’m seeing these people, I guess they’re editing or claiming I have a fake Instagram,” she explained.

“These people must think I’m a 15 year old girl, and they claim Lil Kim and my hairstylist, makeup artist and sister follows the page. They never did. They even made fake Photoshopped comments from my hairstylist, which we proved was fake,” she continued.

“I don’t even speak to Lil Kim. I’m going to have to check my DMs…I don’t personally know her that well,” she said.

“They’re claiming I was talking about this girl that I clearly…you know, everybody knows our issues,” she went on to say, seemingly referencing Nicki Minaj.

Ariana Grande. Ariana Grande? I don’t even have a problem with her. Why would I talk about her? I like her music. I never had a problem with her….Doja Cat, Meg[an Thee Stallion],,,I don’t even know why you guys want me to have issues with these people so badly. ‘Oh she hates every female.’ I’m not even like that…stop trying to make this fake s–t up…don’t make lies about me. it’s tiring. It’s annoying.”

“Keeping Twitter safe is a top priority for us – abuse and hateful conduct have no place on our service and we will continue to take action when our rules are broken. In this case, the account has been permanently suspended for violations of our hateful conduct policy,” Twitter said in a statement.

They did not disclose what specifically led to the decision.

She has faced criticism over the years for her far-right views, and has repeatedly been retweeted by President Donald Trump. As recently as Wednesday, she mockingly tweeted about Black Lives Matter: “Today is #whiteoutwednesday. I will shortly be posting a picture of my arse. Thank you.”

According to The Independent, the UN intervened after she wrote a column in The Sun describing as “cockroaches” and “feral humans.”

A petition calling for her to be removed passed over 70,000 signatures.

President Trump recently threatened to shut down social media platforms.

Twitter Establishes Juneteenth as Official Company Holiday

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey announced that from today onward, the company will recognize Juneteenth as a company-wide holiday.

“Both Twitter and Square are making #Juneteenth (June 19th) a company holiday in the US, forevermore. A day for celebration, education, and connection,” Jack, who also runs Square, shared in an announcement thread on the social platform.

He went on, “Countries and regions around the world have their own days to celebrate emancipation, and we will do the work to make those dates company holidays everywhere we are present.”

If you are unfamiliar, Juneteenth is celebrated annually on June 19 and commemorates the official end of slavery in the United States, when the last people in Galveston, Texas were informed on June 19, 1865 — two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation — that the Civil War was over and that enslaved people were now free.

Jack also shared a link for other companies who observe the holiday to be added to a list. See that here!

If you missed it, Jack also donated a large sum to Colin Kaepernick‘s Legal Defense Fund. See how much here…

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Donates $3 Million to Colin Kaepernick's Legal Defense Fund

Twitter’s CEO is helping Colin Kaepernick‘s cause.

Jack Dorsey made a $3 million donation on Wednesday (June 3) to the 32-year-old former NFL quarterback’s Know Your Rights Camp, a fund he started to pay legal fees for protestors who get arrested while fighting for justice for George Floyd.

“$3mm to Colin @Kaepernick7’s @yourrightscamp to advance the liberation and well-being of Black and Brown communities through education, self-empowerment, mass-mobilization to elevate the next generation of change leaders,” the 43-year-old CEO wrote on Twitter.

Just a few days ago, Colin‘s Know Your Rights Camp launched their new fund called the Legal Defense Initiative, which is aimed at providing resources and assistance to protestors in Minneapolis and other cities that have participated in demonstrations.

Jack‘s donation to Colin‘s fund comes after he donated $1 billion to COVID-19 relief efforts.

President Trump Threatens to Shut Down Social Media Platforms

Donald Trump is claiming that he will “strongly regulate” or “close down” social media platforms.

One day after Twitter added warning labels to tweets written by the President of the United States about mail-in voting, the 73-year-old leader spoke out on his account.

“Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices. We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen. We saw what they attempted to do, and failed, in 2016. We can’t let a more sophisticated version of that happen again. Just like we can’t let large scale Mail-In Ballots take root in our Country. It would be a free for all on cheating, forgery and the theft of Ballots. Whoever cheated the most would win. Likewise, Social Media. Clean up your act, NOW!!!!” he wrote on Wednesday (May 27).

“Twitter has now shown that everything we have been saying about them (and their other compatriots) is correct. Big action to follow!,” he added.

Recently, Trump came under more fire for sharing a deepfake video from the movie, Independence Day. See what one of the stars had to say about it…

Donald Trump's Tweets About Mail-In Ballots Get Warning Labels on Twitter

Some of President Donald Trump‘s tweets on the platform are getting warning labels by Twitter.

Variety first reported that the platform has added a few labels to a tweet written by the leader, pointing out that you should always do research of your own and that he was inaccurate in what he said.

The tweet in question was Trump calling out mail-in ballots for upcoming elections rather then the more dramatic and baseless conspiracy theory of Lori Klausutis‘s death.

“There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent. Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed,” Trump stated.

He continued, “The Governor of California is sending Ballots to millions of people, anyone living in the state, no matter who they are or how they got there, will get one. That will be followed up with professionals telling all of these people, many of whom have never even thought of voting before, how, and for whom, to vote. This will be a Rigged Election. No way!”

The label warning is right under the tweet with an exclamation point, saying “Get the facts about mail-in ballots” and leads to you to an educational page about them.

Why Is 'Nobel' & 'Noble' Trending on Twitter Right Now? Because President Donald Trump Misspelled It

If you check out Twitter right now, you might see that both Nobel and Noble are trending right now, and President Donald Trump has something to do with it.

During a twitter rant on Sunday, April 26, the 45th President of the United States tweeted in anger about the media and reporters, and noted that many journalists had received “Noble Prizes for their work on Russia, Russia, Russia,” which referred to allegations that his campaign was colluded by the Russian government.

He went on to write that, “Lawsuits should be brought against all, including the Fake News Organizations, to rectify this terrible injustice. For all of the great lawyers out there, do we have any takers? When will the Noble Committee Act? Better be fast!”

While the tweet has since been deleted, it was screenshot by many, who went on to roast Trump about his comments.

More also suggested he was probably confused on what the Nobel prize was, switching it with the Pulitzer Prize, which awards journalists for their written words.

The Nobel Prize is given to honorees in recognition of academic, cultural, or scientific advances.
