Cardi B sat for an on-camera interview with Access Hollywood but when they posted a clip of the chat Thursday, she didn’t like what she saw. Especially the headline;
Cardi B Admits Baby Kulture Calls Someone Else ‘Mommy’ Because She Works So Much: It ‘Feels Wack’.
So, she took to Instagram to sound-off with a profane, offensive rant aimed at Access. The most outrageous excerpt said;
“Access Hollywood, suck my whole dick. Suck a dick, I hope your fucking mom catch AIDS, bitch.
They asked me a question about me doing different ventures and how has things changed when it comes to motherhood. So I explained to them. I gave them like a 2-minute answer, right?… And I said things have changed because a lot of people expect me to do so many things. Like, a lot of people expect me to be in the studio. Then I film for Rhythm + Flow. I filmed for Hustlers.
I’m working on fucking Fashion Nova and I’m doing other business shit that is about to come out. So, I’m sorry if I take time out my day that I could be five hours in the studio but I spent five hours with my kid. Because yes, I could have somebody babysit my fucking kid but it’s like it’s a wack feeling when your kid not even trying to fuck with you and call somebody else mommy. That’s why you gotta spend time with your kid.
So these muthafuckas chopped what I said up up…. That’s not what the fuck I said! Don’t use my muthafucking kid for clickbait, bitch. Don’t fucking cut shit off trying to make me look like I’m a fuck ass mom cuz that’s something that I’m not. I don’t play that shit.”
Cardi’s claims about clickbait might be justified, but her AIDS insult was over-the-top, even for her. It got her widespread criticism, especially on Twitter.
+Life cautioned Cardi on Facebook:
“PLEASE be careful throwing around ‘AIDS’ or ‘HIV’. The stigma is real. HIV rates are on the rise with black, brown and trans Americans, and stigma plays a big part in that.”
As for Access, the outlet deleted the video in question from both its website and parent company NBC‘s website, which was hosting it.
The Hollywood Reporter says the reason the video was deleted is because producers acknowledged the headline was unfair to Cardi and did not properly communicate the quality nor the content of the interview.
(A source notes the headline because it was written by a staffer on the digital team.)
Access producers reached out and apologized to Cardi and her team.
So far, Cardi has NOT apologized for her hurtful comments.
