BuzzFeed says that even though Cardi B
definitely probably doesn’t write her own raps, she still does have a way with words. That way with words can sometimes go way over the damn line into major stupidity territory, where Cardi goes a lot of the time. Enter this current pile of shit that Cardi has stepped in as she was ranting about Access Hollywood and a story about her.
This all started with Access Hollywood. So they had a a headline which read that Cardi’s blinged-out daughter, Kulture, calls someone else “mommy” because Cardi is working so much. Cardi B lost her mind at this saying that it was “clickbait” and they had “chopped up” her actual quote.
On Instagram Live, Cardi went in about what she really said:
“A lot of people expect me to be in the studio, and then I gotta do other shit, like I filmed for Rhythm + Flow, I filmed for Hustlers, I’m working on fucking Fashion Nova… I’m sorry if I take time of my day that I could be five hours in the studio, but I spending five hours with my kid… Yes, I could have somebody babysit my kid, but it’s like, it’s a wack feeling when your kid don’t fucking…not even trying to fuck with you and try to call somebody else mommy.”
And she shamed Access for chopping it up to create a narrative:
“That’s not what the fuck I said. Don’t use my motherfucking kid for clickbait bitch. Don’t fucking cut shit off, try to make me look like I’m a fuck-ass mom ‘cause that’s not something that I’m not.”
I don’t think she meant to use the double negative and meant: “That’s not something that I am.” Cardi then said she’d like to “spit” on Access Hollywood (like the building, the owner, the manager–who? Which?) before she dropped this:
“Access Hollywood, suck my whole dick. Suck a dick, I hope your fucking mom catch AIDs, bitch.”
What the hell did Access Hollywood’s mom (is Access’ mom Entertainment Tonight, or maybe Extra?) ever do?!
Here’s the video:

People on the internet were with Cardi B during her rant right up until that point:
i understand cardi b defending her child, believe me i do. however, her wishing that someone’s mom, or anyone for matter, “catches AIDS” is disgusting — there’s nothing she can do will ever be forgivable for a vile, ugly, and spiteful statement like that.

I was all for Cardi's rant and really understood why a mother would be angry like that until she had to use AIDS as an insult which unfortunately invalidates everything she said. I hope she takes it back. She'll get backlash for it and she'll feed right into the haters again.

Cardi couldn’t come up with a better insult than wishing AIDS on people?! Contributing to the stigma of AIDS is gross and irresponsible.

Here’s the interview that caused Cardi to go there:
This is the interview that set Cardi B off. She again made up something around her kid in order to get sympathy. To wish this BLACK MAN’s mother gets AIDS is low and says a lot about her upbringing. pic.twitter.com/74G25u6Vbv

So I think that video actually does show Cardi saying she does not spend 5 hours in the studio so she can spend 5 hours with her daughter because she wants to be the one Kulture calls mommy. I feel like at some point Kulture called Cardi’s own mother “Mommy” and that’s what she’s talking about, but I mean, that’s normal. But Cardi wishing AIDS on someone’s mother is a lot. Like couldn’t she just threaten to beat up Access Hollywood’s 10-year-old brother?! That might be less problematic.
