Rapper Cardi B and conservative commentator Candace Owens fought over social media on Monday over each other’s politics. Cardi B posted a series of videos criticizing Owens and claiming that she doesn’t actually “give a f-ck about Blacks.”
“She has an identity crisis. Just because she’s Black, doesn’t mean she give a f— about Blacks,” Cardi B said without showing her face.
Owens responded to this accusation on her now-expired Instagram stories, alleging that Cardi B was “hiding” and “reading your DNC script.”
“You’re going to tell me she’s just not going to show her face in all these videos? She shows her face no matter what, no matter what she looks like. So Cardi B, stop hiding. Stop reading your DNC script. You look ridiculous,” said Owens said.
The conflict first kicked off with an interview with Ben Shapiro on “The Ben Shapiro Show” on Sunday when Owens discussed Cardi B’s interview with Joe Biden claiming that it was merely an attempt by the Democratic presidential nominee to pander to black people.
“It is one of the biggest insults. If black Americans are not insulted by the fact that Joe Biden, who has been hiding in his basement, you know, for the entire year, made an appearance to come out because he was going do an interview with Cardi B. Do we have nothing better to offer?” Owens asked.
Since most black people didn’t have the spine to admit that @benshapiro was 100% correct about @iamcardib and how her music and platform contributes to the disintegration of black culture and values…here you go. #WAP #SundaySpecial pic.twitter.com/q5QxxX9G4e

She also accused Cardi B of being an “illiterate rapper” who is being used by Biden and previously Bernie Sanders to get the black vote.
“You are pandering,” Owens said referring to Biden. “You look at Cardi B’s Instagram, and you see she has millions of followers, and you think, ‘OK, this is an illiterate person, and if I appeal to this illiterate person’ … ‘They think she’s cool. She’s hip just by sitting here and taking this interview. ‘Black people will vote for me.’ It’s basically saying, ‘Black people, you are stupid, you are dumb, and you are so foolish.'”
Cardi B responded to Owens’s accusations on Twitter claiming that her “#1 song” “WAP” helped her get the interview.
“You wanna know why joe gotta talk to me Candice cause I have the #1 song & yet my sister can’t go to the beach in the Hampton’s wit out trump supporters harassing cause they were by themselves,” she wrote.
“Just like I can make millions of people pop their p-ss- … I can make millions of people go vote,” she said in a video posted to Instagram.

Cardi B also tweeted a picture of President Trump surrounded by black people in prayer, accusing the president of pandering and claiming that she “will never praise no politician…ONLY THE LORD.”
Owens, however, wasn’t having it, and shot back at the rapper for being “uneducated.”
“You continually keep saying you have a Number One song – it means sh-t,” Owens said.
“Nobody cares about a song about your ‘Wet Ass P-ss-’. That has nothing to do with black America, and whether you’re helping or hurting. Right now, you’re hurting black America.”
In August, Cardi B acknowledged Shapiro’s opinions on her newest song after he read the lyrics aloud and criticized it for being so explicit.
“This is what feminists fought for. This is what the feminist movement was all about, and if you say anything differently it’s ’cause you’re a misogynist, see?” Shapiro said.
Cardi B responded to Shapiro’s trending review questioning why “conservatives soo mad about WAP.”
I can’t believe conservatives soo mad about WAP. https://t.co/R9vBknfek8

Owens continued to tweet her disdain for Cardi B’s advocacy of certain policies on Monday and claimed that “Hollywood idols are frauds, leading sheep down paths they never took when they discovered success.”
Never listen to a person that has private security but wants the public police defunded.
Never listen to a millionaire that made it here in America, but trashes our country.
These Hollywood idols are frauds, leading sheep down paths they never took when they discovered success.
