Cardi B was forced to delete her Instagram account after vicious attacks from singer Azealia Banks and rapper Lord Jamar. It looks like the public's love affair for the Bronx native is finally over.
Cardi B is among a group of white and Hispanic rappers who are heavily promoted by the media as acceptable crossover hip-hop artists. This is not sitting well with other celebrities.
On Friday, Azealia slammed the pregnant "Bodak Yellow" hitmaker during an interview with The Breakfast Club radio show in New York City.
Calling Cardi an "illiterate, untalented rat" and a "caricature of a black woman," Banks dismissed the one-hit wonder as an influential rapper.
“Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women’s culture was really reaching an all-time high," Azealia said. “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.”
Cardi quickly replied to Banks' sizzling comments, writing a lengthy rebuttal on Instagram.com before deleting her account.
“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."
Lord Jamar, of hip-hop group Brand Nubian, also slammed Cardi B as a worthless tool of the liberal media.
Cardi, who is a former stripper, happily promotes her link to the violent Bloods street gang in her music and on social media.
In a VladTV video, Jamar said Time magazine naming Cardi as one of the world's most influential people was "scary."
"When an ex-stripper Blood is influencing so many people, it could be a little frightening," he said.
