U.S. Rep. Grothman Wants To Ban Performances Like Cardi B’s ‘Wap’

Glenn Grothman wants the FCC to ban sexual performances.

It seems as if Cardi B and her music has captured the attention of Glenn Grothman. On the House floor Thursday, U.S. Rep. Grothman, a Republican from Glenbeulah, said that Cardi B's performance at this year’s Grammy Awards was "inconsistent with basic decency."

In his speech, he requested that the Federal Communications Commission ban performances like hers, as reported by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.


"I've received some complaints in my office, and rightfully so, about Cardi B and the Grammys. They wonder why we are paying the FCC if they feel this should be in living rooms across the nation," Grothman said from the floor. "Wake up, FCC, and begin to do your job. The moral decline of America is partly due to your utter complacency."

A queen of clapbacks, Cardi B, was not going to stand for any of Grothman's shenanigans. She said that there were more important issues that Grothman should be giving his attention to.

"This gets me so mad ya don't even know!" she tweeted. "I think we all been on the edge this week since we seen police brutality back to back including watching one of the biggest case in history go down DUE to police brutality but wait ! This is wat state representative decide to talk about."

“This is why people gotta vote, elect better people cause you got these dum asses representing states.”

While Cardi can count on her millions of supporters to have her back, she found an unexpected ally in Congressmen: Gov. Tony Evers of Wisconsin. 

"I’m not an expert on that genre of music," Evers said. "It just seems troubling that we’re arguing about things like that. Whether one person believes it’s legitimate, another person doesn’t, it just seems like there’s a lot more important things to worry about.”
