Cardi B Defends “Twerk” Music Video, Here’s How She Did
Rapper Cardi B Defends “Twerk” Music Video
Cardi B has been forced to defend her “Twerk” music video after it was met with mixed reactions. Days ago, the rapper teamed up with City Girls, Yung Miami and JT, to start a “Twerk Challenge”, which hit streets across the globe.
The challenge is supposed to be used for the visual of “Twerk” which of course, has Cardi as guest artist. She is seen aboard a yacht partaking in a twerk competition while in body paint. However, the video has been criticized with news anchor, Stephanie Hamill, saying it degrades women. She pointed out that a video that sees women twerking in their bikinis is a let down on women, especially in this #MeToo era. She tweeted:
“In the Era of #meToo how exactly does this empower women? Leftists, @iamcardib , feel free to chime in. THX ..”
Cardi B didn’t hesitate to slam conservatives over the backlash received. She tweeted;
“It says to women that I can wear and not wear what ever I want. do w.e I want and that NO still means NO. So Stephanie chime in..If I twerk and be half naked does that mean I deserve to get raped and molested ? I want to know what a conservative woman like you thinks”
“All these conservatives been harassing me and telling me the most disgusting things these past few days.Listen I’m not telling ya to turn liberal all I’m saying is to admit that your president is fu*kin up this country right now! Liberal or conservative we ALL suffer as citizens.”
Hamil wasn’t silent after the reaction from Cardi. She was back on Twitter with a response saying no means no, no matter what. She also expressed concern over the video which she says objectifies women. She wrote:
“I agree, No means NO, NO MATTER what!
But this video, & others like this sexually objectify women. I think this hurts all women & the cause. We’re not sex OBJECTS! Clearly we see things differently, (maybe I’m just a hater bc I can’t Twerk ) Come on my show, debate me!”
