Cardi B defends herself on her Instagram Live after people accused her of being a rapist. Fans also rushed to defend Cardi with the hashtag #WeLoveYouCardi. However, this soon sparked a fanwar with Nicki Minaj's fandom as they believed #WeLoveYouNicki was the correct hashtag.
Wait, what's this about Cardi B being a rapist?
This rumour was spurred on after an old video of herself resurfaced, and in the video, you can hear her saying that she drugged and robbed men.
Check the video out below:
After finding out about the accusations, Cardi B went on her Instagram Live and told fans what really went down.
Here is some of what Cardi said in the clip:
"I don't like when people be trying to call me a rapist. I don't like that shit. [...] People tried to dig up something and make it something that I didn't do."
However, Cardi does admit to robbing some of the men.
"I never put shit in n***as' drinks. Yeah, I went through n***as' pockets. A lot of you bitches be going through n***as' pockets for $40 to catch a cab 'cause a n***a don't want to give you that. Same shit. Was I wrong for that? That was wrong, but I never fuckin' hurt nobody."
But she insists she never sexually assaulted anyone.
"I never touched nobody. I never fucked nobody. [...] And rape is when you fuck somebody without their consent or without asking."
When fans saw the video, many rushed to her side and showed her love with the hashtag #WeLoveYouCardi. Not long after, the hashtag started trending.
However, it wasn't long before Nicki Minaj fans saw this hashtag. They then created their own hashtag #WeLoveYouNicki as a response. It appears that the fans didn't feel that the hashtag for Cardi B was called for, and believed that Nicki deserved the hashtag more than Cardi B. #WeLoveYouNicki soon started to trend as well.
Cardi's fans noticed this, and they didn't take it lying down. Instead, a fanwar began.
This is what Cardi's fans had to say when they saw #WeLoveYouNicki trending:
The majority called Nicki's fans, 'The Barbz', "petty" because they saw the copycat hashtag as a childish response.
At the time of writing, some fans are even attempting to make #WeHateYouCardi trend.
However, other fans of both singers are calling for peace and for the two fandoms to just love the two women, and to stop comparing them against each other.
One fan puts this in a brilliant way:
And we couldn't agree with her more.
