Cardi B Responds to Backlash Over Rita Ora Collab “Girls”

Cardi B returned to social media on Tuesday to address the backlash over her Rita Ora collaboration, “Girls.” Like Ora did on Monday, Cardi B seemed to both defend and apologize for the song’s lyrics, which some say marginalize same-sex relationships. “We never try to cause harm or had bad intentions with the song. I personally myself had experiences…with a lot of women!” the 25-year-old rapper wrote. “I thought the song was a good song and I remember my experience.” She also said about her use of the word “d**e” in the song, “My own friends be like, ’I’m a d**e,’ so I never thought it was [an] offensive word.” Cardi B tweeted her comments days after making her Twitter account private during a feud with Azealia Banks. Cardi also deleted her Instagram account after Banks called her a “caricature of a black woman” in a radio interview.
