Cardi B Deactivates Instagram After Grammy Backlash
Cardi B deactivated her Instagram account on Monday after enduring nasty comments about her Grammy win.
The rap star's debut Invasion of Privacy was named Rap Album of the Year – but plenty of people took to social media to share their displeasure.
Cardi was having none of it.
"I'm sick of this s**t," she fired back in an expletive-filled video. "I worked hard for my motherf**king album.
“I remember last year when I didn’t win for ‘Bodak Yellow’ and everybody was like, ‘Cardi got snubbed.' Now this year’s a f**king problem?! My album went two-time platinum, my n***a, and every chart that there was, my album was always Top 10. Number one album, as well.”
Cardi was also left red-faced when she accidentally thanked Tom Petty for a bouquet of flowers she received. Petty died in 2017.
“Thank you Tom Petty for the flowers,” Cardi said in an Instagram story she later deleted. “I left the room but the flowers were very big. I want to say thank you so much.”
Cardi’s mystery bouquet came with a card that quoted one of Petty’s songs: “You’ve got a big heart. So big it could crush this town.”
