Professional troll Azealia Banks went in on Cardi B as a fake black person during her Breakfast Club appearance Friday.
“Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women’s culture was really reaching an all-time high,” Banks said, 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."
“I’m just talking about this caricature of a black woman that black women themselves would never be able to get away with," she continued. "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 defended herself and her background in her own IG post and in comments on another. Then she deleted her Instagram page in frustration.
"I'm from the hood. I speak how I speak I am how I am. I did not choose to be famous people choose me! People followed me on Instagram and the people gave me a platform to introduce my talent,” Cardi wrote. “I never asked to be a example or a role model I don't want to change my ways because I'm famous that's why I just mind my business. This is coming from a woman that bleached her skin but want to advocate. GOODBYE. Im not apologizing or kill myself because of who I am.”

What do you think about Banks' racial attack on Cardi, and do you think it should have chased her off of IG.
