Cardi B WAP

Rapper Cardi B lashed out at Republicans in a new interview claiming that they are responsible for much of the backlash against her hit song “WAP.” She released the song in collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion and it quickly became one of the summer’s biggest hits. 

Cardi B Attacks Republicans 

Cardi, 28, told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, that she was surprised that people had such a big reaction to the song, arguing that she grew up listening to “nasty” and “freaky” music all her life.  

She claimed: 

“When ‘WAP’ came out, the people that were criticizing it the most, they were like, ‘This is so nasty, this is so freaky’ — I don’t even think it was religious people, it was really a lot of Republicans.” 

Cardi added that the people she was referring to were not elected officials. They were social media influencers who typically court right-leaning audiences.

“Big Republicans, not like senators and s— like that,” she said. “It was literally like those motherf—–s that got blue checks on Twitter, they’re big influencers and it’s just like… out of anything that y’all could have talked about?”

Cardi Endorses Bernie Sanders And Joe Biden

Cardi is an outspoken Democrat who supported Bernie Sanders in the last presidential election before shifting to supporting Joe Biden. 

“I used to endorse Bernie [Sanders] and then Joe Biden, so they were just trying to figure a way out to pick on me,” she said. “Like, ‘Oh Joe Biden is this the girl you were doing that interview with? The girl that’s talking about WAP? That’s what you want America to be influenced by?’ It’s like, bro, come on now.”  

Cardi recently defended her song “WAP” in another recent interview.

“The people that the song bothers are usually conservatives or really religious people, but my thing is I grew up listening to this type of music,” Cardi said, according to Fox News. “Other people might think it’s strange and vulgar, but to me, it’s almost like really normal, you know what I’m saying?”

Cardi B Fires Back At Her Haters

She’s also had some choice words for people who have accused her of being a hypocrite for not letting her two-year-old daughter listen to the song.

“Ya needs to stop with this already! I’m not [JoJo Siwa]! I don’t make music for kids I make music for adults,” she said. “Parents are responsible on what their children listen too [sic] or see. I’m a very sexual person but not around my child just like every other parent should be.”

If you’ve never listened to Cardi B’s song WAP, I don’t particularly advise it. However, in case you want to see the video and hear the son, here it is, but it’s not safe for work:

Cardi is a former stripper who seems to think rapping about explicit body parts makes her some kind of political expert. It’s ridiculous of her to claim that Republicans are any more offended by that song than anyone else is.

If she can’t stand Republicans, they might just be doing something right.
