Cardi B Responds To Backlash Over Transphobic Facebook Post

It was quickly deleted.

Published September 16, 2018

Cardi B says she’s not the one responsible for a September 16 Facebook post made on her official page that many believe is transphobic.

The since-deleted meme is a screenshot of Rolf from the cartoon show Ed, Edd n Eddy and the message, “I hope nobody sees this tr***y leave this house.”

The Invasion of Privacy rapper took to Twitter to clarify why the post was made. She says that it was a former employee of her’s that made it.

“It’s come to my attention that there have been offensive posts made on what used to be my Facebook page,” she wrote. “For the past year and a half a FORMER team member has been the only one with access to the account."

This is just the latest transgression Cardi B has had to deal with. She recently had to refute accusations by her supposed former roommate Star Marie, who claimed Cardi allegedly prostituted herself to a client, and got Star jumped after a fight and bullied multiple women in the club.

“Just cause we work in the same building don’t mean I f**king know you!” Cardi wrote on Instagram. “I might had say hi and bye and that’s about it! Everybody knows I dance with the same girls from the beginning! Me and you have nothing in common so why would I kick it with you? You need mental health!”

Of course, there was also the Nicki Minaj, shoe-throwing incident as well.

Come on, Cardi! You’re better than this!
