Cardi B hits back at Candace Owens: ‘I honestly just feel sorry for you’

The rapper responded to the conservative commentator’s criticism of her interview with Joe Biden

Cardi B has responded to criticisms from conservative commentator Candace Owens, who called the rapper “dumb” and “illiterate” over her recent interview with Joe Biden.

“You look at Cardi B’s Instagram and she has millions of followers and you think, ‘OK, this is an illiterate person and if I appeal to this illiterate person and she does ‘okurrr’ like she literally did in the middle of this interview, they think she’s cool, she’s hip. Just by sitting here and taking this interview, they will vote for me,’” Owens told fellow conservative Ben Shapiro. “It’s basically saying Black people, ‘You are stupid, you are dumb and you’re so foolish…’” On Instagram Live, Owens continued the attack, saying that Cardi was “uneducated” on politics: “You continually keep saying you have a number one song, it means shit. Nobody cares about a song about your wet ass pussy.”

Cardi responded on Instagram Live herself, highlighting a clip of Owens trying to justify the murder of George Floyd. “The type of people that drag me all day online all cause I hate Trump. This girl tho she makes me sad,” Cardi wrote alongside the second video. “She have a identity issue. She hates her own kind.”

Cardi added more tweets in response, sharing footage of her sister and her girlfriend being harassed by Trump supporters. She added that Owens doesn’t see she is being “used” by conservative forces: “I honestly just feel sorry for you,” Cardi said. She added that while Owens is “encouraging millions” to vote for Trump, “I have a huge platform and I can make millions go vote to get the MAN THAT USED YOU” out of office.
