During a visit to The Breakfast Club on Friday (May 11), Banks threw out some major insults about Cardi, calling her everything from an “illiterate, untalented rat” to a “caricature of a black woman.
Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women’s culture reached an all-time high,” Banks told the radio show’s hosts, referencing Beyonce’s 2016 album, Lemonade. “There was just this really, really, really intelligent conversation going on nationally and then everything just kind of changed and then it was like Cardi B.”
Banks continued, “I’m just talking about this caricature of a black woman that black women themselves would never be able to get away with. Like, if my spelling and grammar was that bad, I’d be canceled. If Nicki Minaj spelled like that, we would be ragging on her all day.”
Cardi B quickly responded to Banks’ offensive comments on Instagram. Shortly after, the rapper deleted her entire IG account.
This isn’t the first time Cardi and Banks have battled it out online. In September, Banks called Cardi a “poor man’s Nicki Minaj,” and accused her of using a ghostwriter for her hit song “Bodak Yellow.” In response, Cardi posted a video of Banks dancing to the “Bodak Yellow” in a club.
