Cardi B Comments on Lizzo Getting Criticized for Using Ableist Lyric
Cardi B shared her thoughts on Lizzo‘s backlash earlier this week after the Bronx rapper’s name was brought to the Twitter post.
Lizzo found herself in hot water after using the word “spas” in the singer’s new song “GRRRLS“. Lizzo pulled the news off the track following criticism, but when a person claimed that Cardi could do a lot more because of her appearance, the “WAP” rapper responded.
“You’re going to do mental gymnastics to get me involved in everything people are dragged into,” she wrote.
Cardi, who previously collaborated with Lizzo on her track “Rumors,” said, “People called me for a lot of shit. Yall does this every week I’m sorry for THINGS & sorry for some things and I’ll tell Y’all for some things DICK AND PERSONALLY IF I WAS LIZZO, I would say SMD. ”
The “colorism” comment that mentioned Cardi was in response to another person bringing up that the Invasion of Privacy artist recently used the word “retarded” on Kay Flock’s song “Shake It.”

“Let me make one thing clear: I never want to promote derogatory language,” Lizzo wrote. “As a fat black woman in America, I’ve had many hurtful words used against me so I overstand the power words can have … As an influential artist I’m dedicated to being part of the change I’ve been waiting to see in the world.”
Cardi B Shares Her Thoughts on Strip Club
Cardi B wanted to remind her fans that her stripper life is still a part of her. She shared her thoughts on Twitter.
The Bronx native said she remembers the old days whenever she went to a strip club. The famous rapper finds herself wondering how much money she could make if she were still dancing.
“Every time I go to a strip club I start calculating in my head how much I would of made that night if I was still stripping,” she confessed. “I don’t know why ….I just automatically do that.”
As we’ve seen in Up and WAP songs, Cardi can still do this dance job very well.
Meanwhile, Cardi touched on one more thing. After Joe Budden spoke of the alleged discrimination against dark-skinned dancers, Cardi immediately shared her thoughts.
“Funny thing u say that because when I was a dancer certain clubs wouldn’t let me work on ‘Latin nights’ cause apparently I didn’t look Spanish enough wit my braids!” she tweeted. “I even spoke about strip club & colorism b4.”
