Cardi B weighs in on Lizzo’s lyrics controversy.
Cardi B had a heated discussion with an online user amidst the controversy over Rizzo’s lyrics.
Twitter user @FeministaJones tweeted about the Bronx bomb’s ability to resist backlash despite the use of offensive language in the song, and Lizzo continues to face criticism for using a single profane slur in the opening verse.
She said, ‘Kardi is thin and light skin. She often ‘leases’ more than other women, especially those who look like Lizzo. That is the world we live in.’
Then the user said, ‘People may be angry, but I don’t care. Colorism and obesity phobia form many reactions and extensions of grace.’
On Wednesday, June 15th, the rapper tweeted, ‘I’m going to do my best to include me in everything that attracts people. People called me for a lot of s***.’
She added that she would not have succumbed to public pressure had she been in Lizzo’s situation.
The 29-year-old artist will apologize for ‘doing it every week’ and ask him to suck the DI. If she were Lizzo personally, she would have called her SMD. [suck my di**].’
Lizzo and Cardi B previously teamed up for a track called ‘Rumors’ in August 2021. The song reached number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart list. Gold certified.
Rizzo’s reaction to the lyrics controversy and backlash
Following the backlash on Monday, Lizzo announced that a new version of ‘Grrrls’ would be released soon.
Regarding the criticism, the singer said, ‘I’ll make one thing clear. I don’t want to promote derogatory language.’
‘As a fat black woman in America, they say a lot of hurtful things to me,’ she added, ‘and I understand the power those words can have.’
The ‘Good as Hell’ rapper tweeted: ‘As an influential artist, I am committed to being a part of the change I have been waiting to see in the world.’
