Cardi B is under fire for using a racial slur

Recommended Posts

Cardi B is under fire again... this time for a racial slur that offends the Asian community.

Cardi posted a picture of her baby girl Kulture as a grown up. Someone commented that she looked like offset and Hennessy Carolina. Cardi B’s response:

“I think cause Hennessy got ch–ky eyes like offset and so [does] KK .Its the only think [sic] I could think off [sic].”

This set the internet on fire and Cardi B was under attacked for being racist and racial slurs. She defended herself:

“I didn’t know that ch–ky eyes was a slur like wtfff I DONT KNOW F–KIN EVERYTHING !!” she wrote in a since-deleted tweet, using the epithet for a second time. “We don’t even use that as a [sic] insult and I didn’t use it as a [sic] insult.”

The Bronx native added that she was “sick of the internet.”

Is Cardi B wrong or should she be held accountable?

We are also sick of how uncultured she is, especially for a rapper! She should be temporarily banned. :akii:

I saw this article on Buzzfeed earlier and a user commented about being Asian and her not realizing it was offensive since her and her friends used it. Until a white woman reprimanded her. I was like :ehidk: I say squinty eyes, but if that’s insensitive someone tell me cause idk what is and isn’t wrong these days. I went to a predominantly Asian college where 55-60% of students were Asian and all of my Asian friends would say it. I just thought it was weird of that user comment that a white woman scolded her for using it

Its a slang thats thrown around in the hood and other communities (latinos, stoners) but it doesn’t mean its not racist.

I grew up around it and I’ve been correcting myself and others for a while now. She could have came out and said “Sorry, thanks for educating me” but instead she became defensive.

But she’s educated on a lot of other matters. I think she knew of the racial connotation, but I believe she just didn’t think people would call her out on it for not using it “offensively.” For a public figure like that to not know is not that believable. However, if she apologizes and doesn’t repeat the behavior again then I think we should forgive and be thankful she’s educating herself on why it’s wrong

Maybe she should’ve done the same thing and asked somebody since she didn’t know.  :gagasmile:

This is how people stay famous and relevant these days. It’s not controversy, it’s Just cheap marketing.  :frenchy:

I agree. She’s been teasing her “new” music for months now and no one gave a damn. She also went to a club in Miami back in February where they previewed a song of hers, but again, no interest. 

The finsta situation, using racial slurs to create buzz, the song with Megan Thee Stallion..... this is the hands of Atlantic Records.

I think none Asians made it a slur and please give a disclaimer you’re Asian before you’re attacked :lemmetellu:
