For the most part, since the devastating breakup from her husband, Cardi B has done an impeccable job of keeping her composure. She, against popular request, didn’t physically harm Offset after he crashed her headlining set at Rolling Loud. The Bronx femcee has, surprisingly, asked fans to not attack her estranged spouse in any way since the news of their potential divorce broke the internet. Not once, at least not directly, has she addressed his cheating accusations nor the women involved, even if they haven’t provided her the same courtesy.
However, when it comes to the notorious outlet The Shade Room, Bardi has had enough. This isn’t her first negative encounter with the gossip blog, and she is tired of their sh*t. Prior, the “Ring” rapstress stated they would post her four to five times a day, and some even felt she was paying them for the coverage, although Cardi vehemently disagrees. “I didn’t want them to keep posting me every single f**king day. It’s like bro, chill. They didn’t listen and I got into an argument with them,” she states in the 11-minute video.
"Y'all ni**as is biased as f**k...," she continued. The rapper mentioned that she feels "people" want to put up the facade that she's hated by all, but she knows this is far from the truth. "Numbers don't lie. My sh*t still sells. Hate me as much as you want; it ain't real," she said.
As a whole, she's tired of asking nicely for The Shade Room to keep her name out of their mouths, in a digital sense. "I don't care if I'm saving the world. I just don't want y'all posting me, period," Mrs. Cephus continued. She called out the infamous blog for "shadow banning" her and after "pressing them in the DM's," they told her, "Needs God [and] is losing it."
In spite of "firing Kyle," her stance on the issue reminds the same. "The audacity of The Shade Room to like comments saying 'they practically made Cardi. Y'all showed her to the Black community,'" fueled her anger even more. "Before y'all ni**as was posting me, I already had f*king followers.... don't ever take responsibility of my fame and my likeness. Just cause y'all post me, don't mean y'all made me," she vented.
Her problem, in reality, isn't even about the posts, themselves. It's about the manipulation in the comments. The "Money" rapper even tossed a few subliminal jabs at Offset's side chick, Summer Bunni, when she steered the conversation into clout-chasing territory.
