Cardi B Slams Candice Owens’ Attacks On ‘WAP,’ Owens Threatens To Sue
Grammy winner Cardi B took to Twitter Tuesday night to fight back against conservative commentator Candace Owens’ attacks on the rapper’s Sunday night Grammy performance of “WAP’ with Megan Thee Stallion.
On a Monday night segment of Tucker Carlson‘s Fox News program, Owens criticized the rappers’ performance. “This seems like an attack on American values, American traditions and you’re actually actively trying to make children aspire to things that are grotesque… We are celebrating perversity in America,” Owens said.
Cardi and Stallion’s Grammy performance featured the two women in metal-like lingerie dancing around the stage, censoring the explicit chorus to comply with network standards.
“Only you can monitor what your kids watch [no one] else,” Cardi tweeted to Owens on Tuesday.
Owens responded, “I take issue with you being used to encourage young women to strip themselves of dignity.”
This inspired Cardi to tweet two nude photos of former First Lady Melania Trump from her modeling days. “Only white women can be naked and show their sexuality and evolve in their 30s but I can’t,” she wrote.
The debate escalated when Owens attacked openly bisexual Cardi for simulating sex with another another woman as “degenerate.” “At your best, you are self-deprecating and humorous,” Owens wrote. “At your worse, you are naked, shoving your vagina into another woman’s vagiba while thrusting atop her.”
Owens then threatened to sue the rapper after Cardi shared screenshots of a tweet from November 16, 2020 in which Owens allegedly wrote that her husband was having an affair with her brother. Owens declared that Cardi fell for doctored photos and threatened to sue the “Up” rapper for the accusation.
Cardi has now deleted all of early tweets from the feud.

After the track’s release in August, “WAP” received outrage from conservatives. After showing footage from her Grammy performance, Carlson told Fox viewers that “They’re intentionally trying to degrade our culture and hurt our children.”
