Why Neither Cardi B Nor Nicki Minaj Won the Fight
It was the flying shoe heard around the world. The fight to end all fights. The diva match to put all other popstars to shame.
Okay let’s be real here. Not only was the fight inappropriate and overall just a mess, the reason for why it started, and also the aftermath, really showed you that no one was in the right, nor was there any “hero” in the situation.
I’m going to start off with what caused THIS particular fight, since they had an incident before, but it was nowhere near as dramatic as this. What happened was that Nicki Minaj were friends with a few exotic dancers that Cardi herself had beef with, but it only escalated from there when Nicki liked a tweet that expressed uncomfortability with the fact that Cardi is friends with Kodak Black, who has a rumor regarding him being a rapist. In the same tweet, the person also -slightly- questioned as to why Cardi B, who has become a recent mother, would hang out with such people. And that all led to Cardi B’s tantrum at the fashion event where the fight took place.
Now’s the part where I explain why they both are on the same level of wrong. After the whole event went down, Nicki decided to go on her podcast, Queen Radio, to talk about that night. While talking about that night, she brang up a woman on her show who has been harassed by Cardi on twitter; she called the woman’s dead son a “monkey”, basically making fun of him because he was black. Minaj also brought up other racist incidents and foolish moments she did to make her look even more worse. While Minaj definitely spilled the tea on that episode of her podcast, it also makes her incredibly hypocritical. Why you may ask? Because during that time, she had a few times where she was being just as foolish. First, there was the day where Nicki blamed Trey Scott for her album getting a #2 on the Billboards chart, basically accusing him of using his new status of being the father of Kylie Jenner’s baby so he can be on the top. Secondly, the day where she defended her friend, 6ix9ine, who is a straight-up convicted pedophile.
Of course, Cardi is still no angel here. She was about to physically assault another woman for showing a teensy bit of shade on social media, and she is mother for cryin out loud!
So what I want people to learn from this article is to acknowledge your fave’s wrongdoings, and to not dismiss their questionable actions just so they can still be seen as innocent.
