It’s been just a few weeks since Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s racy efficiency of their hit music “WAP” on the 2021 Grammys, however the efficiency continues to be inflicting controversy amongst extra conservative viewers. Whereas it was previously reported that the efficiency drew various FCC complaints, yesterday, Rolling Stone turned up a extra actual quantity — over 1,000 indignant emails from viewers who in contrast it to porn and packed their long-winded missives with loads of slut-shaming and melodrama.
In fact, Cardi herself has been the target of conservative complaints ever since she helped Bernie Sanders along with his 2020 presidential campaign, so she’s used to the histrionics. She remained unbothered when the complaints have been delivered to her consideration quote-tweeting a fan account’s screenshot and including a .gif of a smug-looking Wendy Williams smirking on the digicam to an eye-roll emoji and a number of other laughing ones.
Perhaps Cardi is unfazed as a result of she sees by means of the disingenuous intentions behind such complaints, as she identified just a few hours later. Commenting on conservative voices’ obvious silence after a Brooklyn Middle, Minnesota police officer shot and killed resident Daunte Wright — on digicam, no much less — Cardi noted the glaring hypocrisy. “The place the f*ck are you Twitter blue-check Republicans at?” she questioned. “Y’all are the loudest on this motherf*ckin’ app. Y’all not saying nothing, y’all not complaining. Y’all blame all the pieces with what’s improper with America beside the police! Y’all have been very silent! What’s occurring?”
