Cardi B Opens Up About Being Sexually Assaulted During A Magazine Shoot
Cardi Bust It Wide Open B opened up about her own #MeToo experience while chatting with Angie Martinez on the upcoming episode of We tv’s Untold Stories of Hip Hop.
“I will never forget how I went to shoot for this magazine and the photographer, he was trying to get close to me like, ‘Yeah, you want to get in this magazine?’ Then he pulled his di** out,” Cardi recalled in the clip of the show, which premieres on Thursday (September 26). “I was so f**king mad, and I was just like, ‘This is crazy.'”
“I was like, ‘[You’re] f**king bugging. You know what? I’m out,'” she continued. “You know what’s so crazy? I told the magazine owner and he just looked at me like, ‘So? And?’ When I see the Me Too movement — there’s girls from the hood I know that went through the same type of treatment, like they make you feel like you got to do a certain type of thing for the most bullsh*t sh*t. It happens, really, every day.”
Angie then asked if similar incidents still happen to her at this point in her career, to which Cardi responded, “Oh, hell no. I’ll put you on blast on my Instagram … I’ll f**king violate.”
Cardi previously spoke out about the magazine shoot incident during an interview with Cosmopolitan in 2018. “When I was trying to be a [music video] vixen, people were like, ‘You want to be on the cover of this magazine?’ Then they pull their di**s out. I bet if one of these women stands up and talks about it, people are going to say, ‘So what? You’re a ho. It don’t matter,” she explained.
