Shortly after Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” music video hit the internet, fans of both rappers took their sentiments online about how Kylie Jenner should be removed from the clip.

The intense emotions of fans led to an online petition to remove the beauty mogul. It has since received over 54,000 signatures within two days. Here’s what Cardi had to say.

CARDI B GOES ALL OUT IN DEFENDING KYLIE JENNER

In a series of since-deleted tweets, the Grammy Award-winning artist came to Jenner’s defense and cited several reasons why the cosmetics entrepreneur was in her music video. 

The rapper first said that Jenner treated her sister, Hennessy, and her daughter, Kulture, really well during Stormi’s birthday party.

Cardi also mentioned that her husband, Offset, and Jenner’s baby daddy, Travis Scott, are good friends and that Kris Jenner has been giving her advice on some things.

STARRING ALONG WITH OTHER WOMEN

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper’s tweet came as a fan said that all Jenner did in the video was to walk down a hall and open a door, whereas Normani, who also appeared, danced.

The two talented girls looked nearly like identical twins in the picture, which had fans even more excited for their collaboration.

“If that’s not a perfect visual indication of Black women having to do the most and white women do the bare minimum to get nowhere, I don’t know what is,” the fan said

JENNER APPEARS IN THE “WAP” MUSIC VIDEO

The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star’s cameo came when the music stopped and the sound of clicking heels began. Jenner then strutted down the hallway wearing a cheetah-print gown for several seconds.

Meanwhile, Normani appeared at what Cardi called the “best part of the song.” Cardi went on to say that although racial tension is an issue she supports, “not everything is about race.”

Cardi later retweeted a fan who justified the role of Jenner and Normani in the video, both showing off their talents.
