Cardi B is responding to a reporter who accused the rapper of inciting violence in a recent post on her social media.
In the IG clip, Cardi is seen saying “People looting and going extremely outraged, you know, it makes me feel like, ‘Yes! Finally! Finally motherf*kers gonna hear us now. Yeah! As much as people is so against it, at this point I feel like I’m not against it, even though it do scare me.”
Doug Kolk, KTLA entertainment anchor, then ran a segment where he included part of that video, claiming that Cardi was using her “massive platform to promote the violence.”
Cardi wasted no time taking to Twitter to call out the reporter and blast him for only airing a portion of her video and making false accusations against her.
“@DougKolk why your no lip square head having ass ain’t put the part were I said to vote ? You cottage cheese breath having bitch,” she blasted. “Why don’t you post how a conservative Christian trump supporter post my address and encourage people to loot my home(which by the way he goin to jail ).”
Following the social media dragging, Kolk issued an apology to the “Bodak Yellow” rapper, recognizing that he misunderstood what she was saying.
“I apologize to @iamcardib if I took her words out of context,” he tweeted. “I respect her for using her platform to connect with people during these difficult times and it was wrong of me to not let her full voice be heard. I will make sure that is corrected during my next segment.”
KTLA also made it right by airing a segment including an apology from Kolk. “I recognize now how I misconstrued her words,” Kolk said. “I ask Cardi and her faithful fan base for forgiveness, and let this serve as a learning experience for me, not only as a journalist but as a human being.”
The portion that was not aired, was the New York rapper encouraging her fans to get out and vote.
“Another way for the people to take power… I don’t want to make everything political but it is what it is. It’s by voting,” said Cardi in the untelevised clip.
