Cardi B deletes her 22.3m follower Twitter account after fans harass her for not attending Grammys
While we were busy laughing at Award-winning author Kakwenza Rukirabashaija’s Twitter claim of eating Museveni’s Shs5m transport money and switching off his phone for a month, another bit of Twitter drama went down with one of America’s best female rappers, Cardi B.
The 29-year-old rapper deleted her official Twitter account of 22.3 million followers after some fans criticized her for not attending Sunday night’s Grammy award show.
“I’m deleting my Twitter. On God I hate this f***in dumbass fan base,” she tweeted before deleting her profile.
“You got the slow dumbasses dragging my kids all cause y’all thought I was going to the Grammys and I didn’t the f***?,” She wrote on Twitter before deleting the account.
She added:“When the f* I hinted I was going? Just f*ing stupid. I can’t. I need sic to protect myself,”
Shortly after deleting her profile, the ‘WAP’ singer went on her official Instagram page live and explained the reason behind her decision of deleting her Twitter.
“I’m doing girl-day s*** today, right? And I’m chilling and everything and then I’m going through my Twitter, and I see people on my Twitter, my fans, my own fing fans talking s like, ‘Oh.’ Practically saying that I’m lazy, and that I was giving hints that I was going to the Grammys. B*, how the f was I giving hints that I’m going to the Grammys?” she said.
Cardi further explained that she hasn’t released any new music, so it didn’t make sense for her to attend the Grammys for being nominated for one award for Best Rap Performance for her single ‘Up’.
“Do I have any new music?,”she asked her fans.
“Why would I show up with one nomination? And I lost it anyways, so you wanted me to go to the Grammys, lose an award, and me just be there smiling like, ‘That’s great, that’s great,”
The award-winning rapper also addressed fans who had mentioned her children in attacks against her.
One fan tweeted to Cardi: “I bet your son wouldn’t like for you to be on your a** while teasing us fans and not ever dropping music.”
According to reports, Cardi replied to the tweet almost instantly, writing: “I hope your moms die.”
In her Instagram live session, the rapper said: “That person brought up my son. If you’re talking s* about me, why are you bringing up my f*ing son?”
