Cardi B’s latest threatening tweets about Peppa Pig have sent the internet into a frenzy. It looks like we might be getting a diss-track pretty soon…
This time she has taken issue with a popular kids show her daughter Kulture has taken a liking to, and Twitter has gone off.
Born in the Bronx, NY, Cardi (her real name is Belcalis Almanzar) came from a life of domestic violence and poverty and had to resort to stripping aged nineteen to make ends meet.
“The first time I stripped I was really embarrassed, I felt like I could hear my parents voice in my head,” she told ID magazine last year.
“After a while, I didn’t even care anymore. I was seeing the money that I feel like I would’ve never seen ever.”
In 2015, she joined the cast of the VH1 reality TV series Love & Hip Hop: New York…
But after 2 seasons, Cardi announced that she would be leaving the show to pursue a career in music – the thing she was truly passionate about.
And the rest is history.
In the space of 2 years, the singer’s life has taken a complete U-turn.
With an estimated net worth of around $8m, and even being hailed as one of TIME’s most influential people in the world last year, the star has truly made her mark on the industry.
Cardi first found fame when some of her posts on Vine and Instagram went viral, catapulting her to instant stardom.
Her stage name, Cardi B, came from her family nickname… Bacardi. Quite fitting, don’t you agree?
With her explicit lyrics and brazen behavior both on and off stage, Cardi B has certainly made a name for herself in the world of music.
Her crude lyrics and overwhelming stage presence certainly haven’t stopped her from succeeding; they’ve done quite the opposite, in fact.
Throughout her career, she has bagged herself a Grammy, 7 Billboard Awards, 3 MTV Music Awards, and 2 Guinness World Record Awards. Not too shabby.
Flaunt it, right?
Part of Cardi’s overall image is her sassy attitude.
She’s never afraid to speak her mind and is always open to experimenting with new and outlandish looks.
And I feel many parents will agree with me when I say that Cardi’s Instagram page is not a place for children.
Her outspoken nature on social media has landed the rapper in quite a lot of trouble in the past, however.
For example, who remembers the time when Cardi decided she was going to post a picture of her daughter which had been edited to show what the child would look like as an adult?
It seems as though one fan had their own theories, suggesting Kulture looked more like a combination of Offset and Cardi’s sister Carolina, AKA Hennessy.
“I think cause Hennessy got c****y eyes like Offset and so do KK. It’s the only think [sic] I could think off [sic].”
That’s when everything took a dramatic turn and Cardi was on the receiving end of intense backlash to which she was forced to respond.
“I didn’t know that c****y eyes was a slur like wtfff I DONT KNOW F*****G EVERYTHING !!” she wrote in a since-deleted tweet, using the slur again. “We don’t even use that as a [sic] insult and I didn’t use it as a [sic] insult.”
But if you do say something offensive, the usual response is to apologize and then move on.
Why get enraged when you’re the one that did something wrong?
And it looks like she has more to deal with after taking to Twitter to share her thoughts on her daughter’s favorite show, Peppa Pig.
One fan wrote, “Wait til she starts hanging up the phone like a savage,” while sharing a clip from the show.
Another tweeted a photo of the cartoon character’s height which was given as 7-foot-1 as they said, “Peppa big as hell. You may wanna rethink that.”
It looks like a Peppa Pig diss-track might be on the cards, and we’re all here for it.
“My baby been watching peppa pig and now Everytime she sees a wetpuddle she wants to stomp on top of it. That s**t gets me so tight ! F***in up her uggs……Deum you peppa pig …COUNT YOUR F***IN DAYS!”
