Cardi B, The rapper sounds off about the #MeToo movement

Cardi B is known for her candidness. On social media, in interviews, and in her lyrics, she’s been open about everything from pregnancy rumors to what it feels like to be a record breaker. She’s also talked frequently about her past as a stripper and consistently advocated for the rights of women who choose that job. As she put it to Cosmopolitan in a new interview, “People say, ‘Why do you always got to say that you used to be a stripper? We get it.’ Because y’all don’t respect me because of it, and y’all going to respect these strippers from now on.”

“Just because somebody was a stripper don’t mean they don’t have no brain,” she adds.

That lack of respect is why, in Cardi B’s opinion, the reckoning that’s happening in Hollywood with the #MeToo movement hasn’t changed as much in the music industry—especially for women with similar backgrounds as her own. “A lot of video vixens have spoke about this and nobody gives a f-ck,” she told Cosmopolitan.

She then adds her own personal experience as an example. “When I was trying to be a vixen, people were like, ‘You want to be on the cover of this magazine?’ Then they pull their dicks out,” she says. “I bet if one of these women stands up and talks about it, people are going to say, ‘So what? You’re a ho. It don’t matter.’”

As for men who have made public statements backing the movement, the rapper isn’t convinced. “These producers and directors,” she says, “they’re not woke, they’re scared.”

Cardi B’s quotes have naturally started quite the debate on Twitter, with many people (specifically women of color) siding with the rapper. Below, just a few examples:
