Cardi B deactivated her Instagram just after sharing an expletive-filled video to defend her Grammy Award win.


Merely a day after Cardi B took home her first Grammy Award for Best Rap Album, she deactivated her Instagram account. The 26-year-old who flawlessly performed "Money," had been receiving slews of criticism and hate after her win.

She posted a feisty and profanity-filled video to her Instagram story calling out critics who felt she didn't deserve to win the GRAMMY. Hours later, she deactivated her Instagram account.


"I've been taking a lot of s**t today, I'm seeing a lot of bulls**t today and I saw a lot of s**t last night and I'm sick of this s**t," a livid Cardi B explained in the video. "I worked hard for my motherf**king album."

She then went on to explain how hard she worked and the sacrifices she made in order to bag the prize. Cardi reminded everyone that she had been pregnant while recording parts of her album and still gave all her attention to it.


"I [expletive] worked my *ss off, locked myself in the studio for three months…  didn’t go to sleep in my own bed, sometimes for four days straight, [while] pregnant," she continued.

Cardi also added that many people at the time told her, "Your career is over." Many felt her pregnancy would hinder her ability to perform.


The album in question is "Invasion of Privacy" which was released in April 2018. The album went on to be certified double platinum by the RIAA.

The album bagged Cardi a Grammy. It also made her the first female artist to have each of the tracks on the album were certified gold. 


Her Grammy win also made her the first solo female artist to win the Best Rap Album at the Grammys. Unfortunately, the accumulation of accolades has not helped Cardi silence haters.

Instead, after deleting her Instagram account, Cardi focused on positives. She took to Twitter to thank those who supported her including fellow artists.

"I listen to my album and I cry because I know the hell I went thruu doing the album is always a bittersweet memory," she wrote, alongside a screenshot of a complimentary comment from Chance the Rapper after her GRAMMY victory. "THANK YOU EVERYONE THAT SUPPORTED ME AND LISTEN. I'm thankful and grateful and again thank you to all the artist that gave me a feature."
