Cardi B defended herself after she was accused of calling a black woman a roach in an old tweet that just resurfaced.

In response, Cardi said that the word "roach" is a Bronx slang term, and she's even called herself that in the past. She uploaded an old video to prove it and accused people of trying to ruin her chance in the spotlight. Especially now, that her song 'Bodak Yellow' continues to get bigger.

Afterward, someone brought up another old tweet of Cardi's, where she offended the transgender community by calling someone a "tranny," which she since apologized for. But several people came to her defense and argued that folks were just being haters.

What do you think about this? Should Cardi be blasted for the "roach" and "tranny" comments, or are people trying to start something out of nothing? You can see some of the Twitter conversation below.
