Cardi B says Candace Owens once offered her $250,000 for an interview amidst fiery Twitter feud

“Anybody that justifies the death of George Floyd, I don’t wanna talk to. I don’t fu*k with,” Cardi said about the conservative commentator.

  /  09.07.2020

On Sunday evening (Sept. 6), Cardi B fired back at Candice Owens after the conservative commentator called her “dumb” and an “illiterate rapper.” The exchange began after Owens tweeted a snippet of her interview with Ben Shapiro — who previously tore down Cardi’s hit single “WAP” — and claimed that Joe Biden used his sit-down with Cardi to “pander” to Black voters.

“You’re pandering,” Owens said about presidential candidate Biden. “You look at Cardi B’s Instagram, you see 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 ‘Okuurr!’ — like she literally did, in the middle of this interview — [then] they’ll think she’s cool, she’s hip. So, just by sitting here and taking this interview, Black people will vote for me.’”

After a series of back-and-forth tweets, Cardi responded to the “real nasty” things Owens said about her in an Instagram video.

“You’ve been antagonizing me for years and you claim that you antagonize me because I stick my nose in politics, because a woman like me — that pays taxes, that live in a country that continuously sees injustice — having a voice bothers you so much. Everybody can have a fu*king voice,” she said.

Cardi also accused Owens of repeatedly trying to get her to sit down for an interview and even allegedly offering her $250,000.

“Anybody that justifies the death of George Floyd, I don’t wanna talk to. I don’t fu*k with,” she said.

In another post, Cardi said Owens has been “pimped out” by Trump, who she’s been fervently supporting for years. The rapper pointed out that despite Owens’ loyalty to the Republican Party, she wasn’t invited to speak at the Republican National Convention.

“You are encouraging millions to vote for a man who laugh Everytime a black men gets killed by a cop and tell millions of Americans to drink bleach,” she tweeted. “Trump didn’t even have you talking at the Republican convention He thinks you’re dumb. [MAGA] did you dirty but you mad at me?”

Cardi also revealed the harassment she said she’s received from Trump supporters. The Bronx native said she had to hire a private investigator after a conservative teen posted her home address online and encouraged others to burn her house down. Furthermore, Cardi posted a video from her sister, Hennessy Carolina, and said that she and her girlfriend had been harassed by a family sporting MAGA hats because they had been speaking Spanish.

“I pay so much money in taxes. I’m a good American; I don’t bother nobody… And [my sister] can barely go to the beach with her girlfriend in the Hamptons without getting harassed by Trump supporters,” Cardi said. “No matter how much money I make, no matter how much I work, I can’t be a fu*king free American. My sister can’t be a fu*king free American.”

Cardi has been an outspoken advocate for voting and political participation, and said that this latest feud with Owens won’t slow down her activism.

“I will never let ya SILENCE MY VOICE cause you threatened by the power that I have for a NEW BEGINNING AND CHANGE!” she wrote on Instagram.
