A tweet from Cardi B almost a year ago has come back to haunt her.
Twitter is currently going off on the “Bodak Yellow” rapper for a tweet that she sent out in November last year. “B**ch I ain’t had to search hard your main pic is wild Muck .You just Ugly you look like a BURNED ROACH,” she wrote. Seems someone went digging found the tweet and retweeted it and it went viral. Some folks thinks that she was borderline racist by calling a black female a roach.
Some fans are now threatening to boycott Cardi B music even though she said that she did apologize for the tweet back then. In her defense, she also said that she regularly calls herself a roach and was not being demeaning towards black women by saying it.

Pls stop trying to excuse Cardi's behavior with "she's from the hood". I'm from the hood. Being from the hood doesn't mean you can't LEARN.
