Cardi B has had it with entertainment site The Shade Room and the “negative” content she says they post about her.
In a series of since-deleted tweets, the “Up” rapper and the popular gossip outlet exchanged words Sunday after The Shade Room posted a celebratory message to Cardi’s daughter, Kulture, on her fourth birthday.
“Delete my child off y’all page The Shade Room … Thank You,” Cardi wrote on the post, later shared by Onsite.
“Cause my thing is …okay you only post negative content bout me ,cool no biggie. got me blocked from commenting on their page ok cool,” she tweeted. “but please don’t post my child on yall funny ish …I don’t want to be old self but just leave me alone.”
The Shade Room responded, disputing the rapper’s claim and providing snapshots of their positive coverage, including the addition of the star’s latest song “Hot S**t” to their #TSRTunez vertical.
Referencing Cardi’s $4 million legal victory over blogger Tasha K, the outlet said, “Whats the phone number of the lawyer you used in your defamation case because we tryna see something is this the ‘only negative’ content you are referring to?”
Cardi continued her clapback, this time via video message, according to HipHopDX.
“I DM’d you guys but, of course, you guys ignore me, and that’s why I had to take it publicly,” she said. “Clearly, you guys have me muted from commenting on your page. That’s why when I comment, nobody can see my comment and I actually have screenshots of it, and that’s why I posted it.”
After hours of back and forth, Cardi suggested a phone call with The Shade Room’s founder, Angie Nwandu.
“Just spoke to @iamcardib and we were able to come to a resolution,” The Shade Room posted after.
