Owens hit Democratic candidate Joe Biden for participating in an interview with Cardi B – real name Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar – for Elle last month in what she described as the “greatest insult” to black voters
Cardi, 27, caught the wind of Owens’ comments and hit them back in a video on Instagram insisting that because of her far-reaching influence, Biden chose to sit with her.
“It’s no secret that I use my platform to encourage people to vote,” Cardi, who previously supported Bernie Sanders, said during the video.
‘I have millions of followers. I pay millions in taxes. I have the number one song in this country, I have the number one song in the UK, I have the number one song in Australia, I have the number one song in New Zealand.
“Just like I can get millions of people to pop their p ****,” she said of her hit single, WAP, “I can get millions of people to go out and vote.”
Cardi condemned Owens as a “cheerleader” for Trump and slammed the experts for “being pimped out by white men”.
“I don’t know which black guy broke your heart … that you hate your ways so much,” Cardi said. “I honestly just feel sorry for you,” she said in a separate message.
In the caption for the video, Cardi B wrote: “@realcandaceowens here I hope these followers that you wanted sooo badly from me make you happy … Now leave me alone … love yourself for me!”
Owens later responded with her own Instagram video claiming Cardi was hurting black America.
“You keep saying you have a number one song – it means s ***,” Owens said. “Nobody cares about a song about your ‘Wet A ** P ****’. This has nothing to do with black America, and whether you help or hurt. Right now you are hurting Black America. ‘
Owens said it was “one of the biggest insults” to black voters that Biden chose to conduct the interview with an “illiterate” person rather than someone who could ask the “tough questions”.

The 31-year-old then suggested to Cardi B that her husband, Offset, would statistically be more likely to kill her than a cop.
The back and forth was also broadcast on Twitter and lasted until Monday morning.
Owens accused Cardi of encouraging millions “to vote for the man who imprisoned generations of black men.”
“You might google JOE BIDEN AND 1994 CRIME BILL,” she suggested, before adding, “Joe Biden used you. Bernie Sanders used you. None of them like or know your music. They think you are stupid. ‘
The hitmaker responded by insisting that Owens is now encouraging millions to vote for a man who laughs every time a black man laughs [sic] is killed by a police officer and tells millions of Americans to drink bleach, “an obvious reference to when the president called on the White House’s coronavirus task force to investigate whether a disinfectant could be injected to treat coronavirus in April .
“Trump didn’t even let you speak in Republican Congress,” Cardi went on. “He thinks you’re stupid. MASA you made dirty, but you are mad at me? ‘
Cardi was also referring to her sister, Hennessy Carolina, and her sister’s friend, who verbally dealt with what she called “racist MAGA supporters”. during a recent beach trip to the Hamptons as an example of the ongoing spread of racism in the United States.
Cardi parodied her hit single and also tweeted Owens, who is six months pregnant, writing, “Your baby is singing Wap Wap Wap This Some Dry Ass P ****”.
Owens dismissed the comment, writing, “Attacking an unborn child. How much DEMOCRAT of you.
“While I have you – did you know that your party has supported the slaughter of over 18 million black babies since 1973? Did you know that the unsafe place for a black child to have YOUR party is in the womb? ‘She continued.
Owens accused Cardi of encouraging millions “to vote for the man who imprisoned generations of black men.” The hit maker responded by insisting that Owens, meanwhile, “encourages millions to vote for a man who laughs every time a black man is killed by a police officer”.
While the couple stopped notifying each other directly, each continued to speak about the feud on Monday in a series of tweets and interactions with their followers.
In one such post, Owens hit Cardi B for what she felt was hypocrisy because of the rapper’s calls to disappoint the police and criticism of the US in general.
“Never listen to a person who has private security but wants to defuse the public police. Never listen to a multimillionaire who made it here in America, but destroy our country, ”she tweeted on Monday. “These Hollywood idols are scams and lead sheep down ways they never took when they found success.”
Cardi B has not yet directly referenced Owen’s latest tweet. However, she retweeted a message of support from New York Congressional candidate Ritchie Torres, who wrote, “Thank you, Cardi B, for the reveal [Candace Owens] for the deceit that it is. You make the Bronx proud. ‘
Cardi B is currently number one on the music charts in several countries with her controversial single WAP starring Megan Thee Stallion.
During her in-depth conversation with Joe Biden last month, the rapper asked the president hopefully on political issues like the COVID-19 pandemic, police brutality, college affordability and health care.
“I have a whole list of things our next president should do for us,” she told Biden. “But first I just want Trump out.”
