Cardi B is known for being quite the controversial character on social media, and after being named Billboard's Woman Of The Year, many have had strong opinions.

And now, in typical Cardi B fashion, the rapper has responded to the criticism...

We all know that Cardi B is unbelievably successful...

And she has been named as one of the most popular female rap artists of our generation.

But the rapper had a pretty difficult start in life...

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.

This wasn't a path she ideally wanted to go down...

"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.

She soon made her musical debut on Jamaican reggae fusion singer Shaggy's remix to his single "Boom Boom"...

And the rest is history.

In the space of 2 years, the singer's life took 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.

But before she became an awarding-winning singer, she was a social media star.

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?

The star has since become renowned for her headline-making behavior...

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.

But Cardi's outlandish behavior has only propelled her even further...

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.

Because if you've got it...

Flaunt it, right?

You have to admire her confidence...

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.

She documents every single aspect of her life on Instagram...

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?

When a fan pointed out that the 2-year-old actually looks more like her sister than her, things got awkward.

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. Yikes.

Responding to the fan, Cardi wrote this:

“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]."

Fans immediately jumped on the singer, calling her out for the use of the racist slur often hurled at Asians.

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.

She then said this:

“I didn’t know that c****y eyes was a slur like wtfff I DONT KNOW F–-IN 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." Oh, girl no.

She also added that she was "sick of the internet."

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?

Cardi is clearly a hot-headed woman...

And fans being upset with her behavior doesn't seem to phase her... at all.

And yet again, Cardi's latest move has left everyone rilled up...

Because she's just won the title of Billboard's Woman of the Year!

Predictably, many aren't so happy with the choice...

And sveral Cardi B haters have spoken out against her win.

Well, it didn't take long for Cardi to respond to the criticism.

She posted a firey video on social media, with her saying: "For you crybabies, that’s like ‘what? she only got one song’ – yeah I got that song, b****."

She then fired back with this:

"You know? The one that sold the most, the one that streamed the most. The one that had republicans on Fox News crying about it. The one that’s about to be six times platinum in three months."

She then finished by saying:

"The one that had your grandma popping her p***y on TikTok. Yeah, bitch, that one." Fair enough! Want more celebrity backlash? Scroll on for Gal Gadot's latest ...
