Cardi B and conservative commentator Candace Owens have engaged in social media wars before, but their public discourse reached an epic level on Tuesday (March 16) that could possibly land both women in court.
Owens appeared on Fox News following the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards and slammed the fiery Bronx native for her sexually-charged performance of “WAP” with Megan Thee Stallion, accusing both women of “weakening” American society.
While Cardi initially seemed to brush off Owens’ commentary with a flippant tweet, the situation erupted into a heated back-and-forth, with Owens going straight for the throat and calling the performance “disgusting.”
“You are insecure and I irk you because I see right through the facade,” she continued. “You are a part of a larger cancer that is manifesting in black culture. There’s no person in America who can look you in the face and honestly say they wish they’re daughters turned out like you.”
Undeterred, Cardi posted a video of Owens in the kitchen with the words, “Barefoot, pregnant and disappointing feminists everywhere” written across the bottom of it.
She added in the caption, “And black women should be more like you? After all the fighting for equality and freedom they should be submissive to a white man after years of abuse & rape making them a sandwich while pregnant cause in your words ‘that’s what a woman should do?’ Interesting.”
Owens then reminded Cardi she’s a role model for young women whether she wants to be or not — but not before calling her a “stain on culture.”
“Millions of young girls follow you,” she told Cardi. “At your best, you are self-deprecating and humorous. At your worst, you are naked, shoving your vagina into another woman’s vagina while thrusting atop her. You were at your worst on the Grammy stage. Do better @iamcardib.”
As the vitriolic comments continued to fly, Cardi decided to bring Owens’ husband George Farmer into the fold and suggest he was having a gay love affair.
“Not you talking about two women thrusting their vaginas together while your husband and brother slap cocks and balls together,” she said alongside an article about Farmer’s alleged cheating. “WELL WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT ! wow.”
But Owens was armed with a comeback and made sure to remind the Grammy Award-winning rapper of the many times her husband Offset has been accused of cheating.
“I am literally laughing out loud,” she fired back. “Cardi. My dear. That is clearly a photoshopped tweet. Only one of us has a husband that sleeps around.”
Cardi replied, “This wasn’t photoshopped you was trending the whole day when you tweeted this and it was published on a lot of blog outlets .Your right mine sleeps around yours sleeps at yours sleep at your home with your brother COCK BOXING while you tweet me.”
That’s where the exchange took a more serious turn with Owens asking, “What the actual hell are you talking about? Are you dead serious right now trying to substantiate a photoshopped tweet? Asking one more time before I get the lawyers to make you publicly admit you’re lying and embarrass yourself.”
She followed up with, “FYI I DO have a brother, a private citizen, who you are slandering right now with this photoshopped image that you are now publicly claiming you saw tweeted in real life. You want to admit you lied now, or get sued so I can expose you as a liar? I win either way.”
When someone supported Owens’ threat to sue for defamation, she was 100 percent into the idea.
“Yes,” she wrote. “Just spoke with my family. I am 100% suing Cardi for that nonsense. You can’t just start throwing out wild lies against private members of my family because you’re upset someone called your out on your degenerate performance. I‘ll keep you all posted.”
Finally, Cardi gave Owens a dose of her own medicine and vowed to countersue for claiming she photoshopped a tweet.
“Of course your family going to tell you to sue since you tweeted your brother and husband beat box on dicks,” she said. “It’s everywhere you can even Google it. Even random people dates they saw you tweet and deleted. I DIDNT MADE IT UP.
“I’m going to sue candy for claiming I photoshopped a tweet that dozens of articles reported about back in November 2016. First she claim me and my team photoshopped it now it was a fake tweet. Which one is it .Everyone is free to Google.”
