Before I start, I have to say that our founding gay forefathers and foremothers did not risk everything championing marriage equality in order to make it easier for future generations of baby gays to wed just to have a story like this come up and knock them in the head like a shoe thrown from across the room at the Met Gala.
For some reason (15 seconds of fame and an easy check), people still go to Divorce Court (the daytime television show, I mean), to air out their dirty laundry in front of millions of kids who are watching while they’re home sick from school. But it was two feuding exes in particular that sent the internet reeling this week after it was discovered that their marriage crumbled because one was a fan of Nicki Minaj and the other was a fan of Cardi B. I’m really going to need you all to sit and think about that for a minute.
D’Andrew (Team Barbz) and Don’te Leapheart (Team Cardi) were married for 2 years before they discovered that they could no longer be together in the same room as long as the other was playing for the opposite team.
If you can somehow manage to muster up the strength, since the concept of love is now officially dead and gone, watch the possibly scripted tragedy unfold in the video below:
“Yikes!” is right. Maybe I’m too much of an optimist (a common misconception). Maybe Nicki and Cardi will both watch this episode (I don’t know why but I feel like they’re both the type to sit at home and watch trashy daytime television) and realize what their beef is doing to the state of love in this country and throw down their arms.
Here’s the full episode:
