Cardi B is fed up with the social media trolls and has one thing to say to the haters! DELETE!
That’s right, the “Up” rapper deleted her Twitter page after receiving major backlash over releasing a doll in her likeness.
Cardi posted the photo of the doll on her page and explained why she decided to get into the business.
“Growing up, I ain’t never seen a doll that looked like me, I’ve never seen a doll that really represents me,” she said. “When you’d go to the doll aisle when you was my age, it’s either like there’s a real white one, there’s a real dark one, and there’s like barely one that’s like in the middle. None of them have my style, none of them have my flavor, and it’s like I want a doll that represents me.”
The Grammy winning rapper’s fans were not too pleased and begin to attack her about putting out products and not new music.
One fan wrote “ like we get it sis. ur a business woman who finds multiple ways to the bag & thats cool !!! but dont come on here like i got a surprise for yall !! and it be a doll.”
Cardi was quick to attack back and give a piece of her mind.
“Yo, I really hate when people start acting like brats and start really pissing me off. I don’t like that s**t,” she said in a Twitter voice note. “I wanna make it very clear. After I dropped I said, ‘I’m gonna take my time. I gotta finish my album.’ If I say I’m gonna finish my album, it doesn’t mean that I’m gonna drop in March, it doesn’t mean that I’m gonna drop in April. Let me do this f**king s**t because everybody expect me to f**king fail, so when I drop my album, I want it to be immaculate with everything great.”
Following her response, the messages only got worse and Cardi decided it was best for everyone if she deactivated her account.
Cardi has not said when she will be back on Twitter, but we are guessing it will probably be when she’s ready to release a new debut single.
