Cardi B Blasts an Edited Picture of Herself That's Currently Being Shared Online as Body Shaming | 22 Words

Alongside her prolific music career, Cardi B is known for her rather extreme bod. But when an edited picture of her went viral, she had to speak out.

Cardi B is known for being provocative.

But her latest move has the whole internet talking.

Cardi's butt is a headline grabber all on its own.

It's pretty hard to ignore, let's put it that way.

But when one picture of it looking even larger than life started circulating...

Cardi had to speak up!

She took to social media in a now-deleted rant.

Calling out those who had edited the image.

Cardi B has had an amazing couple of months.

The Bronx rapper is well known for her brash behavior and her overly sexualized image, but her most recent single has certainly taken things to a whole other level.

Featuring rapper Megan Thee Stallion, Cardi B released "WAP" earlier this month...

And as you can imagine, the single is everything that we would have expected from Cardi B.

The word "explicit" doesn't quite cover it...

"WAP" (which stands for something that we aren't even going to go into right now) is all kinds of hip-hop badness that fans have fallen head over heels for.

Cardi's new single has even broken records.

The track was confirmed as being the new U.S number one on the HOT 100 by Billboard this week, earning Cardi her fourth U.S number-one single and Megan her second.

But the thing that people are talking about is "WAP"'s music video.

Set in a strange, wonky-looking house clad with wild animal deco, Cardi and Megan are seen strutting their stuff in glamorous dresses and lingerie whilst serving some fierce looks... but they aren't alone.

A whole range of erotic female dancers features in the video...

And as Cardi said in her own words, "I wanted different types of bad b****** in my video. Black, white, Latin, mix."

Even Kylie Jenner made the cut for God knows what reason...

Which then lead to a petition being launched to get the reality star removed from the video. We have so many questions!

Whoever choreographed the video had a vivid imagination...

And the dance moves thrown leave very little to the imagination, to say the least!

Fans had a lot to say about the video...

And it's safe to say that not everyone was loving the erotic dancing and the eye-wateringly explicit lyrics.

"WAP" is not a track you want to listen to with your family...

Especially not with your grandmother!

A vast majority feel that "WAP" is totally inappropriate.

The fact that millions of young people are being influenced by this track is extremely unsettling.

People aren't impressed...

And many feel that the track is "disgusting" rather than "empowering", as it has been labeled in the past.

Tucker Carlson even branded the track as "garbage."

He pondered what tracks like "WAP" are doing to the younger generation and how those who are rich and famous pushing this culture onto young people "should be ashamed of themselves."

But not everyone was so cruel about it.

This user had some pretty wise words for those that are "crying" over the song.

Some even compared it to other "vulgar" songs...

That's not a sight I ever want to see again.

This user defended Cardi...

She claims that the rapper "owns her sexuality." We're totally here for that.

This user shared a very personal story...

What a twist. These people are probably the same kind of watching "WAP" in their spare time.

Cardi's music should be aimed at adults only.

But it sadly seems that the younger generation has been latching on to her every word and move all thanks to social media.

The dance moves from WAP are now trending on TikTok and other social media platforms...

And even though the majority of those dancing to the track are adults, younger TikTokers have been getting involved.

People are seeing it as a challenge...

And it isn't hard to see why! Are those dance moves even humanly possible?!

The answer is yes, but should not be attempted unless you've stretched beforehand.

But obviously, a lot of people are still considering whether this song should be removed from some platforms, but there's no point now since almost every single person in the world has seen it.

Cardi has spoken out about it.

While being interviewed on the radio show The Kyle and Jackie O Show she said this: "The people that the song bothers are usually conservatives or really religious people, but my thing is I grew up listening to this type of music."

She continued:

"Other people might think it's strange and vulgar, but to me, it's almost like really normal, you know what I'm saying?"

She also added this:

“You wanna know something? It's what people wanna hear. If people didn't wanna hear it, if they were so afraid to hear it, it wouldn't be doing as good."

And that's on facts. It shows us the kind of content people like to watch, clearly.

But now Cardi has hit headlines for another reason.

When she noticed this pic of her circulating, she had to speak out.

"That's why I pray every day and God keep blessing me triple in people face cause they done tried everything to bring me down."

“The sad shit is that the people that be doing these rumors and be trying to make people bash me about my looks are WOMEN!"

Yikes. Want more from Cardi? She's also been in hot water lately for a different reason.
