Cardi B defends Kylie Jenner after backlash for her cameo

After the release of rappers Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's new song WAP, the cosmetics mogul got serious backlash for her cameo. Check out what Cardi B had to say.

  • A petition was started on Change.org to have Jenner's scene removed from the video.
  • It gathered 50,000 signatures in 2 days.
  • It's turning out to be a rough year for Kylie: first it was declared she is no longer a billionaire, her cosmetics company was being scrutinized, and now this.
  • All on top of the family's concerns for Kim Kardashian's husband, rapper Kanye West who is dealing with a bipolar episode.

Backlash comes as a result of Black women feeling offended by Jenner's appearance in a video that shows all Black women showing off their bodies proudly, and Kylie isn't Black.

One person tweeted "Normani did ALL this and Kylie walked down the hall and opened a door." In reference to American singer and dancer Normani Kordei, who became a member of the group Fifth Harmony after presenting herself as a solo artist on The X Factor in 2012.

"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" ended the tweet.

Cardi B tweeted right back in defense of Jenner. The tweets have now been deleted. The singer's husband Kiari Kendrell Cephus known as Offset, is close with Travis Scott, who is also a rapper and the father of Jenner's daughter, Stormi.

The anger towards Kylie Jenner is just the drop that spilled the glass. It goes back to some African Americans complaining about women in the Kardashian/Jenner family appropriating Black culture to benefit their various brands.

Despite the Kardashian-Jenner history Cardi B said not everything is about race, the rapper just wanted her friend to appear in the video!
