Today in Hip Hop News, as we know it, since 2020, Cardi B and conservative political activist Candace Owens have been publicly feuding.
Owens recently gave an interview in which she was asked what sparked her feud with Cardi, and she went on to bash the Grammy-winning rapper, calling her "uneducated" when it came to politics and her grammar.
“I don’t even remember how it started. It’s incredible how uneducated she is,” Owens stated. “She just got embarrassed on Twitter. She was just saying stuff about politics and I was just responding. I wasn’t even being rude. She literally doesn’t even know what country she’s in, how the country works.
Regarding Cardi’s typos, “When she types, there’s 87 typos in basic words and yet, same thing, she’s mouthing off. I don’t even think she understands Congress has a Senate and House of Representatives. She has no idea what she’s talking about.”
Cardi B then entered The Neighborhood Talk's comment area on Thursday evening (February 17), alleging Candace Owens' team demanded a public apology in addition to a $75,000 payment, or she would face legal action.
“What’s embarrassing is she tried to get her lawyers to make me do a public apology after she’s been attacking me for months and try to make me pay her $75K in a month or she threatened to sue with NO CASE… like how smart you are and don’t even know the law,” Cardi responded.
Cardi B and Owens have had many heated exchanges, including one over The Bronx native's racy No. 1 single "WAP" and another in 2020 when the political commentator attacked Cardi and referred to her as an "illiterate person" on The Ben Shapiro Show.
