Cardi B deletes Instagram account after beef with Azealia Banks
American rapper, Cardi B has deleted her Instagram account after a messy fight with fellow singer Azealia Banks who likened her to an illiterate on a radio show.
It happened that Banks was on a popular radio show, where the conversation shifted from discussing her music to the lingering problem she has with Cardi B. Banks said she doesn’t find musing funny but likened her to an “illiterate, untalented rat” and a “caricature of a black woman.”
“Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women’s culture was really reaching an all-time high,” Banks told the radio show’s hosts, referencing Beyonce’s 2016 album, Lemonade. “There was just this really, really, really intelligent conversation going on nationally and then everything just kind of changed and then it was like Cardi B.”
Banks continued, “I’m just talking about this caricature of a black woman that black women themselves would never be able to get away with. Like, if my spelling and grammar was that bad, I’d be canceled. If Nicki Minaj spelled like that, we would be ragging on her all day.”
Cardi B responding to Banks comments, said;
“I’m from the hood. I speak how I speak I am how I am. I did not choose to be famous people choose me! People followed me on Instagram and the people gave me a platform to introduce my talent,” Cardi wrote. “I never asked to be a example or a role model I don’t want to change my ways because I’m famous that’s why I just mind my business. This is coming from a woman that bleached her skin but want to advocate. GOODBYE. Im not apologizing or kill myself because of who I am.”
Shortly after the invasion of privacy, Cardi deleted her Instagram account.
This isn’t the first time Cardi and Banks have battled it out online. In September, Banks called Cardi a “poor man’s Nicki Minaj,” and accused her of using a ghostwriter for her hit song “Bodak Yellow.” In response, Cardi posted a video of Banks dancing to “Bodak Yellow” in a club.
