Cardi B and her sister are being sued for assault, battery, defamation, and civil rights violations after an altercation on Labor Day weekend resulted in the two calling a group of beachgoers “racist MAGA supporters,” ABC 7 reports.
The rapper’s sister, Hennessy Carolina, posted a video of her and her girlfriend, Michelle Diaz, arguing with a group of individuals in a New York beach parking lot.
In the video, one individual is wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, and another says, “Move your vehicle out of here.”
The two groups yell “shut the fuck up” back and forth, and Carolina says, “Get the fuck out of my face.”
“Bitch I got a strap,” Carolina says. “Yeah, I got a dildo and I’ll shove it up your ass and your husband’s ass.”
One of the group members, Peter Caliendo, told ABC 7 that he approached the two “nicely.”
“Very nicely said, you must not be from here because you don’t know the etiquette of the beach,” Caliendo said.
Cardi B tweeted on Sept. 6 that Carolina and Diaz were “harassed” because they are an “Afro/Hispanic gay couple.”
“I have the #1 song & yet my sister can’t go to the beach in the Hampton’s wit out trump supporters harassing,” Cardi B wrote.
Carolina said the group told her and Diaz to go back to their country and harassed them for “no reason.”
“How dare you sit here and yell and tell us to fucking leave and bother us and basically harass us,” Carolina said. “We move out of respect, and you still came, two men, to us and yell ‘get out of here, go to your fucking country’ because you saw us parking here and we were speaking Spanish and we’re mixed.”
The group’s attorney, John Ray, said that Cardi B, Carolina, and Diaz edited the video to falsely paint the group as racists, per ABC 7.
“Real threats of harm were made,” Ray said, per ABC 7. “They live in fear now. Their reputations have been ruined. We seek substantial damages.”
