Cardi B And Azealia Banks Are In An All Out War On Social Media And It’s Actually Insane

Cardi  B and Azealia Banks have re-ignited their beef on social media this week and folks–strap in because this is going to be a wild ride.
Back when “Bodak Yellow” dropped and was hitting the charts hard in 2017, Banks had called Cardi B a “poor man’s Nicki Minaj,” saying that Cardi was “uneducated and untalented.” The since-deleted tweets caused Cardi to clap back at Banks–but since then, things simmered down between the two women.

Until that is, Banks appeared on 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” this week and threw some strong words at Cardi B. In the interview, Banks claims that Cardi is an “illiterate, untalented rat” and claims that she’s one of the biggest problems for black women today.

“Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women’s culture was really reaching an all-time high. There was just this really, really, really intelligent conversation going on nationally and then everything just kind of changed and then it was like Cardi B.”

She continued to say that there was a double standard for Cardi B, that she can be this “person” and act a certain way because she’s not black, and can “play up black culture,” because she, herself, is not black.

You can see the full interview here–Banks starts up about Cardi B around the 22:00 mark.

After the interview went viral and people heard Banks’ comments, Cardi B clapped back right away on Instagram–commenting on video posts of the Interview, and posting something herself.

After she posted this, however, Cardi B deactivated her Instagram account and put her Twitter account on private.

Banks, however, did clap-back to Cardi on Instagram after seeing her reaction–saying:

Clearly, this is some insane beef between both ladies. While this entire situation was popping off, people on Twitter had some honest opinions, some siding with Cardi, some siding with Banks.

We want to know–where do all of our Petty Mayo readers stand in this beef? Let us know in the comment section.
