Bronx femcee starlet Cardi B took to her social media podium to give her address to the “crazy week in the internet” on none other than Instagram Live, beginning with yet another Tristan Thompson cheating scandal.
In case you missed it, the Cleveland Cavaliers' baller was allegedly caught creeping outside of his relationship with Khloe Kardashian—again. This time, however, his mistress was alleged to be with someone that dropped the jaws of Keeping Up With the Kardashians fans to the ground: Jordyn Woods, the best friend of Khloe’s little sister, Kylie Jenner. Several fans reached out in disgust of Tristan and support for Khloe, urging the youngest Kardashian sister to do away with Thompson, whom she shares a daughter with, for good. But the other half of the internet couldn’t help but rejoice in the relentless name of karma, which they believe Khloe brought on herself from her history with Tristan when he was in a relationship with the mother of his first child and former fiancée, whose name is (ironically) also Jordyn.
Cardi isn’t taking that route though, especially as a woman who’s suffered in the public eye from similar heartbreak.
“Why us women don’t have compassion towards each other?” She acknowledged that everyone must know about her situation by now, and it’s even more reason for her confusion as to why people are celebrating Khloe’s devastation. “I know the Kardashians have done f**ked up sh** before and everything,” Bardi said, “but the thing is I think the karma got to them when the last situation happened to shorty before the day she gave birth.”
According to her, the Kardashian sister received her just due from karma when Thompson’s first cheating scandal broke. But that’s where she draws the line, especially when taking Khloe’s baby girl into consideration. “Why do you guys keep wishing that on a woman, especially a woman that has a daughter?” The Invasion of Privacy rapper insisted that women everywhere know the toiling mental strife from that kind of heartbreak and notices, to her discontent, that it’s mainly women in the comments cackling away at Khloe. It leads her to question how such happiness could be born from another woman’s hell. “Why do you guys keep—I don’t know, like—enjoying other people’s pain, enjoying other people’s misery, knowing how much it hurts…”
The same ones who preach about supporting and uplifting other women, but are the same folks cheering when another woman “is going through some sh**.” From friends, to family, to herself and even the women with so much to say in the comments, Cardi said, she believes everyone has been through it and suspects that it could be part of the reason other women are reveling in Khloe’s distress. “So why is it that y’all laugh and live—‘Oh, I live!’—for another woman’s pain?” she said. “Imagine how shorty feeling looking at her baby right now. Her heart broken. Not only is her heart broken because her nigga did her wrong, but the whole world is happy that her heart is broken.”
To Cardi, “it’s whack,” and despite not having a personal relationship with Khloe, she’s reaching out her hand in empathy with the 34-year-old.
What do you say, ladies? Does she have a point, or is karma still handling its due diligence?
