Cardi B Deletes Instagram Account After Azealia Banks Feud
Cardi B made it clear on Saturday that she wants nothing to do with Azealia Banks (or the rest of the drama that sometimes erupts on Instagram), and deleted her account following a feud that sparked after the "212" rapper's comments in a radio interview.
“Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women’s culture was really reaching an all-time high,” Banks said in reference to Beyoncé’s Lemonade. “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.
“I’m just talking about this caricature of a black woman that black women themselves would never be able to get away with. Like, if my spelling and grammar was that bad, I’d be canceled. If Nicki Minaj spelled like that, we would be ragging on her all day."
Once Cardi got wind of the comments, things escalated quite fast, with the rapper responding to the comments and then deleting her account entirely. In addition to deleting her account, the 25-year-old star went one step further and made her Twitter unavailable to the public.
"I'm from the hood. I speak how I speak I am how I am. I did not choose to be famous people choose me! People followed me on Instagram and the people gave me a platform to introduce my talent,” Cardi wrote in a lengthy clapback, which has since been deleted along with 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."
