Cardi B is still defending her Grammys performance of “WAP” after another Republican member of Congress spoke out about it — instead of speaking on more important issues.
On Thursday (April 22), U.S. Rep. Glenn Grothman of Wisconsin spoke about the complaints his office received about the steamy performance. “They wonder why we are paying the FCC if they feel that this should be in living rooms across the nation. I realize that Kamala Harris has used her fame to promote this performer, but I assure the FCC that millions of Americans would view her performance as inconsistent with basic decency,” he said. “Wake up, FCC, and begin to do your job. The moral decline of America is partly due to your utter complacency.”
The “Bodak Yellow” emcee got wind of his speech and took to Twitter to call him out for focusing on her performance, instead of police brutality.
“This gets me so mad ya don’t even know!” she tweeted. “I think we all been on the edge this week since we seen police brutality back-to-back, including watching one of the biggest cases in history go down DUE to police brutality, but wait! This is wat state representatives decide to talk about.”
After a fan agreed with Cardi’s statements, she brought up the police shooting of Jacob Blake, which took place in Kenosha, Wisconsin — the same state Rep. Grotham serves — last summer. Blake, a Black man, was shot in the back seven times by a white police officer, who was later cleared of any wrongdoing for the shooting and has returned back to active duty.
“Mind you, Nikkas can’t give a word about Jacob Blake or give him proper Justice, but this part of the reason why!!!!!” Cardi tweeted. “They giving seats to FUCKIN IDIOTS!! This is why people gotta vote, elect better people cause you got these dumb asses representing states.”
