Cardi B had some choice words to say about former Minnesota police officer Kim Potter after a new mugshot of her smiling surfaced on social media.

On Thursday (Dec. 23), the Invasion of Privacy spitter took to Twitter to address the new photo, which took place right after she was convicted of manslaughter for fatally shooting 20-year-old Daunte Wright. “It’s funny to me how her cries seemed so fake but her smile seems so genuine #itwasneveramistake,” Cardi tweeted.

In a follow-up tweet, she wrote, “She’s smiling cause she only got manslaughter also because now she don’t have to fake it and she CAN LIVE IN HER TRUTH…Her truth is ‘yea I killed him and what?!’ That’s the truth she been wanting to say but had to act like she was sorry.”

As REVOLT previously reported, Potter was found guilty of first-degree manslaughter and second-degree manslaughter for shooting and killing Wright during a traffic stop back in April.

During the trial, Potter gave an emotional testimony about how she didn’t mean to use her firearm during the incident, saying she remembered “yelling, ‘Taser, taser, taser,’ and nothing happened, and then he told me I shot him.” She also told jurors that she “didn’t want to hurt anybody.”

Following the verdict, Katie Bryant, Wright’s mother, thanked everyone for their support. “We want to thank the entire prosecution team,” she said. “We want to thank community support, everybody who has been out there that has supported us in this long fight for accountability.”

Potter is scheduled to be sentenced in February. The standard sentence range for first-degree manslaughter is between six to eight and a half years in prison and the maximum sentence is 15 years. Prosecutors will reportedly ask Judge Regina Chu to impose a harsher sentence, while Potter’s legal team will most likely ask for a punishment that is below the typical penalty.
