Cardi B Denies Posting Transphobic Meme To Facebook
Cardi B has found herself in hot water once again for a transphobic meme that was posted to her official Facebook page on Sunday (Sept. 16). While the image has since been deleted, the Invasion of Privacy rapper now claims she didn't make the post and a former team member has been running her page.
"It's come to my attention that there have been offensive posts made on what used to be my Facebook page," the "Be Careful" rapper tweeted. "For the past year and a half a FORMER team member has been the only one with access to the account."
The image that was posted featured the now-viral Rolf from Ed, Edd n Eddy meme and included the sentence, "I hope nobody see this tranny leave my house," followed by a number of laughing emojis.
The meme isn't Cardi's first time catching heat for transphobic comments. In January, the rapper hopped on Twitter and explained that she didn't know "tranny" was an offensive word. “Like I didn’t know that that was a word that you cannot use, especially because my trans friends use it and growing up, my parents never told me that that was a bad word," she said.
Cardi also defended husband Offset in the past, after the Migos rapper rapped a homophobic lyric on "Boss Life" with YFN Lucci. Following the backlash, Cardi said she wouldn't allow Offset to be called homophobic because he's not. “I’m saying this because I see him around gays, and he treats them with the same respect he treats everybody," she added. "He never acts uncomfortable, and he just don’t care.”
