Cardi B Shuts Down Conservative Who Said She’s ‘Not Empowering’ In The #MeToo Era

Rapper and political commentator Cardi B clapped back at a Daily Caller staffer on Twitter after the columnist slut-shamed her new music video, “Twerk.”

On Sunday, conservative video columnist Stephanie Hamill attacked “Twerk” by City Girls and Cardi B by tweeting, “In the era of #MeToo how exactly does this empower women?” Hamill retweeted the video, which features barely-clad women covered in paint twerking in various locations and asked leftists and Cardi herself to chime in.

Considering Cardi’s recent response to provocateur Tomi Lahren, Hamill must have known her tagging the rapper in an antagonizing tweet would trigger a response. And it did.

“It says to women that I can wear and not wear what ever I want,” wrote Cardi. “Do whatever I want and that NO still means NO.”

She continued: “So Stephanie chime in…If I twerk and be half naked does that mean I deserve to get raped and molested? I want to know what a conservative woman like you thinks.”

Hamill quickly replied, agreeing that “no means no, no matter what” but adding that the music video hurts all women and “the cause” because it sexually objectifies them. She followed up by asking Cardi to come on her show for a debate.

Before Hamill had a chance to reply though, Cardi wrote about how much harassment she’d been receiving from conservatives on Twitter who were telling her “the most disgusting things these past few days.”

“Listen I’m not telling ya to turn liberal all I’m saying is to admit that your president is f***in up this country right now! Liberal or conservative we all suffer as citizens,” Cardi wrote.

A lot of “leftists” also responded to Hamill’s call asking “how exactly” Cardi’s video empowers women.

Of course, conservative outrage over what women choose to do with their bodies and how they choose to do it is nothing new. But antagonizing female rappers over social media to do it, sort of is.
