Cardi B Said "I Hope Your Mom Catch AIDs" During An Explosive Instagram Live Video

    After seeing an Access Holywood video claiming her daughter "calls someone else mommy" the rapper went on Instagram Live to defend herself in an expletive-ridden rant.

    The tirade kicked off when Cardi saw a headline written by Access Hollywood that claimed she'd said her daughter, 1-year-old Kulture, calls someone else "mommy" due to her working so much.

    The video in question appears to have since been deleted.

    But, in an Instagram Live after seeing the headline, Cardi refuted the story, claiming that her actual answer had been "chopped up" for "clickbait".

    According to Cardi, when asked about balancing work and motherhood, she gave a two-minute answer explaining that her daughter comes before work.

    "A lot of people expect me to be in the studio, and then I gotta do other shit, like I filmed for Rhythm + Flow, I filmed for Hustlers, I'm working on fucking Fashion Nova," the "Bodak Yellow" rapper said while recounting her answer on Instagram Live. "I'm sorry if I take time of my day that I could be five hours in the studio, but I spending five hours with my kid."

    Cardi added: "Yes, I could have somebody babysit my kid, but it's like, it's a wack feeling when your kid don't fucking...not even trying to fuck with you and try to call somebody else mommy."

    But, according to Cardi, Access Hollywood edited her answer to make the headline for their interview. Continuing on Instagram Live, she said:

    That’s not what the fuck I said. Don’t use my motherfucking kid for clickbait bitch. Don’t fucking cut shit off, try to make me look like I’m a fuck-ass mom ‘cause that’s not something that I’m not.

    However, Cardi's rage reached new levels when, after saying that she'd "spit" on the publication, she said: "Access Hollywood, suck my whole dick. Suck a dick, I hope your fucking mom catch AIDs, bitch."

    This comment, in particular, has been criticised across social media and, although many could understand why Cardi was angry, they thought the "vile, ugly, and spiteful statement" went too far.

    i understand cardi b defending her child, believe me i do. however, her wishing that someone’s mom, or anyone for matter, “catches AIDS” is disgusting — there’s nothing she can do will ever be forgivable for a vile, ugly, and spiteful statement like that.

    One person, who said they had supported Cardi's rant until that moment, claimed the comment invalidated her point.

    I was all for Cardi's rant and really understood why a mother would be angry like that until she had to use AIDS as an insult which unfortunately invalidates everything she said. I hope she takes it back. She'll get backlash for it and she'll feed right into the haters again.

    Another called the rapper out for "contributing to the stigma of AIDS", calling it "gross and irresponsible".

    Cardi couldn’t come up with a better insult than wishing AIDS on people?! Contributing to the stigma of AIDS is gross and irresponsible.
