The public’s reaction to her victory created a tense environment online with many naysayers claiming the title should have been given to a different project. The criticism was also personal since some remarked that the young artist was completely undeserving of the acknowledgment. This led to Cardi B’s now-deleted rant in which she defended her success, citing her unparalleled work ethic.
She uploaded a tame version of her statement soon after and even uploaded a clip showing off the bruised legs she earned while rehearsing for the award ceremony. Next thing we know, her account is gone. Hopefully, Bardi finds rest as she takes a step back from the platform. Fans can still find her on Twitter – for now.
