Cardi B Deactivates Instagram After Social Media Backlash

A day after her historic Best Rap Album Grammy win,Cardi B deactivated her Instagram account after receiving heavy criticism on social media.

The deactivation came shortly after she posted a fiery, profanity-filled video to her Instagram story where she called out critics who felt she didn’t deserve to win the Grammy. In the video, Cardi recalled that last year, people claimed to be shocked that she didn’t win a Grammy for her hit “Bodak Yellow.” She also reminded everyone about her Billboard Chart history and how much she had to grind to finish up her album which included locking herself in the studio for three months while she was pregnant.

The 26-year-old rapper’s latest album, “Invasion of Privacy” dropped in April 2018 which went on to be certified double platinum by the RIAA, while Cardi became the first female artist to have all the tracks from the album individually certified gold.

Despite all the criticism, the artist received lots of love and support from fellow artists, and she took to Twitter to thank those who supported her. Including the Grammy winner and Oscar nominee, Lady Gaga who wrote on twitter “It is so hard to be a woman in this industry,” and continued saying “What it takes, how hard we work through the disrespectful challenges, just to make art. I love you Cardi. You deserve your awards. Let’s celebrate her fight. Lift her up & honor her. She is brave.”
