The rapper Cardi B will not tolerate slights. She recently threatened to reveal DMs after complaining about being exploited for unpaid “marketing strategies.” Now, Cardi has some words to say to MMA fighter Jake Shields.
Shields felt the need to include Cardi in his outburst on Twitter after the misogynist influencer Andrew Tate was banned from using social media. Shields wrote, “People are absolutely cool with young ladies looking up to Cardi B and the Kardashians but freaking out about young boys looking up to Andrew Tate.”
“The major takeaway from Tate’s book is to put in hard effort, become in shape, and earn money rather than being lazy and making excuses. Cardi’s plan is to use drugs, f**k random dudes, and live like a stupid fool.”
Cardi reciprocated the clap. The rapper stated, “I’m married, I don’t use drugs, I don’t drink, I don’t do coke, I’m a mom of two kids, and I do a lot of charitable work. “But hey, let me insert Cardi into the argument to support a man who supports rape and misogyny.”
Five years ago, Andrew Tate was expelled from Twitter for saying that women “carry blame” for sexual assault. Tate was recently removed from TikTok and the Meta platforms as well. Because of “violating restrictions on harmful organizations and persons,” according to Meta, he was banned. Tate gained notoriety in 2016 after being fired from the reality TV program Big Brother for allegedly assaulting a woman in front of the camera.
Joe Mulhall, director of research at Hope Not Hate, commented on Tate’s suspension as follows: “Young guys are genuinely threatened by [him], who radicalizes them toward misogyny, racism, and homophobia. The main social media sites, including Meta, have received substantial proof from us concerning his behavior and the need for his removal.”
