Cardi B doesn’t have time for ignorance… 

In recent days, Cardi B has delivered her opinions on all matter of things. Firstly, she perfectly summed up the problem with Trump’s government shutdown (frankly, we couldn’t have put it better ourselves).

Now, the rapper has just nailed what feminism is in 2019. After a far-right female, Stephanie Hamil, shared Cardi B and City Girl’s new video for ‘Twerk’ and asked, “In the Era of #MeToo how exactly does this empower women?” the singer didn’t hesitate in calling out her victim-blaming behaviour.

“It says to women that I can wear and not wear what ever I want. do w.e I want and that NO still means NO. So Stephanie chime in..If I twerk and be half naked does that mean I deserve to get raped and molested? I want to know what a conservative woman like you thinks,” Cardi B responded.

Hamill then responded by encouraging Cardi B to debate the topic. 

“All these conservatives been harassing me and telling me the most disgusting things these past few days,” Cardi B tweeted back. “Listen I’m not telling ya to turn liberal all I’m saying is to admit that your president is f**kin up this country right now! Liberal or conservative we ALL suffer as citizens.”

Other Twitter users chimed in on the conversation – with several pointing out Hamill’s confusion with sexual harassment and sexual expression. 

We’re listening.
