Cardi B defends her use of the R-word after she was ‘chewed up’ on Twitter: ‘They want you to be Mother Teresa’! Cardi B has doubled down on her use of the R-word despite acknowledging anger and discomfort from fans.
The “WAP” rapper was recently named Billboard’s Woman of the Year. For her cover story, published on Wednesday, Hip-Hop Editor Carl Lamarre asked if she feels that “expectations are still higher for female artists.”
“I don’t want to be like, ‘Oh, female artists, we have it hard.’ But we do f—ing be having it mad hard!” she replied.
“N—-s be out here doing the most, being disrespectful,” she continued. “Just the other day, I was getting chewed up because I said the R-word. Like, how you gonna cancel me for calling myself r—–ed?”
She added: “They want you to be Mother Teresa, they want you to put out music, and they want you to look a certain way. It’s like, ‘Y’all gotta chill – I’m just a regular-degular b—-, man.'”
“Lord, Lord, why the f— you have to make me so stupid and r—–ed? Why? Why, why, why?” she said. “You know what, I’m never going to beat myself up about it.”
The R-word, sometimes called the R-slur, is widely considered to be offensive to people with disabilities.
