Cardi B has defended her decision to include Kylie Jenner in her new video for “WAP.” As previously reported, a Change.org petition was created to remove Kylie from the clip. The petition now has over 65,000 signatures.
In now deleted tweets, Cardi said that she put Kylie in the video because Kylie “treated my sister and daughter so lovely at her kid bday party.” She continued, “Travis and Set are real close and Kris Jenner have giving me advice on certain things I ask for and her husband real cool with mine.”
Later a fan tweeted, “Normani did ALL this and Kylie walked down the hall and opened a door. If that’s not a perfect visual indication of Black women having to do the most and white women do the bare minimum to get somewhere, I don’t know what is.”
Cardi responded, “Normani is one of the best female artist that dances Like she dances her f*ckin a** off! Why would she open a door? Please tell me how that would make sense? The best part of the song is the beat & hook it what makes you want to shake your a**.”
She continued, “Not everything is about race. Theres issues out here in the world that it is about race that I i preach all the time about. This is not about f*ckin race.”
