In one of the videos which triggered the campaign and backlash targeted at Cardi B, she is heard saying “Get him perced up … have a threesome, trick him into f*cking a tranny … Rob him while he’s sleep”.
Ever since the old videos resurfaced, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper, who was a previously known stripper, mounted a defence mechanism by taking to Instagram to admit to having done such things but added that it’s her past and she regrets it.
However, some critiques believe that though, the videos are old, Cardi B deserves to face some charges just as Bill Cosby faced and R. Kelly is facing for his past life of sexual encounter with some teens.
Notably, others argued that Cardi B’s confession of how she bait men with sex to rob them does not amount to any sexual crime that calls for her to face the law.
There is also a debate that there is a significant number of rappers like J Cole, Jay Z, and Nicki Minaj among others who equally admitted in some of their songs that they’ve done illegal things too, therefore, the pressure to get charges pressed against Cardi B is unfair.
