Cardi B wants everyone to know she did not post a recent transphobic meme to her Facebook account. According to Cardi, a former (presumably disgruntled?) employee posted a meme that many lashed out at the singer for due to it’s lampooning of transgender women.
The meme shows a man looking out the window as an unpictured transgender person leaves his house, captioned “I hope nobody see this T****y leave my house,” followed by laughing emoji.
Cardi took to Twitter to confirm that she did not post the meme, saying, “For the past year and a half a FORMER team member has been the only one with access to the [Facebook] account.” It’s good that Cardi is so active and outspoken on her social media accounts, otherwise the backlash could have quickly escalated, as it does.
It's come to my attention that there have been offensive posts made on what used to be my Facebook page. For the past year and a half a FORMER team member has been the only one with access to the account.

However, this isn’t the first time she has been caught making transphobic slurs. In an old Instagram Live video, she explained herself, saying “I didn’t know that was a word that you cannot use, especially because my trans friends use it and growing up, my parents never told me that that was a bad word. You know, there’s bad words that your parents teach you that you’re not supposed to say. Nobody taught us that. Nobody taught us that in our school.”
After addressing the most recent incident on Twitter, Cardi stepped out yesterday with her daughter Kulture to see “Poppa Bear,” who we’re guessing is Cardi’s husband Offset.
Cardi stepped out in tight goldenrod-colored pants and her Jeremy Scott for Cybex baby stroller. People noted that this is the first photo of the “I Like It” singer since her dust up with “Queen” Nicki Minaj during New York Fashion Week.
