Cardi B posted about the incident on Instagram the following day, revealing that Minaj’s comments about her child and parenting skills are what set her off. “When you mention my child, you choose to like comments about me as a mother, make comments about my abilities to take care of my daughter is when all bets are fuckin off,” the rapper said.
Minaj responded in her radio show Monday, saying that she never spoke ill of Cardi’s daughter or parenting skills. “I would never talk about anyone’s child or parenting. I don’t care about anyone’s parenting,” Minaj said.
She proceeded to make several shots at Cardi, stating that she “built her career off of sympathy and payola” and calling her a “disgusting pig.” She then suggested that Cardi may be suffering from postpartum depression. “Let’s get up a 1-800 number for postpartum depression,” she said. “It’s nothing to joke about. You just had the biggest blessing of your life with a child, and in two weeks you have attacked three women—one at Fashion Week.”
Minaj also expressed how “mortified” she was over the entire incident because of the bad press on the two as Black women in the public eye. “I could not believe how humiliating it all felt because [of] how we made ourselves look,” she said.
“You’re angry and you’re sad and this is not funny and this is not about attacking,” Minaj continued, addressing Cardi directly. “You put your hands on certain people, you gonna die. Period.”
As of Monday evening, Cardi B has not responded to the radio show.
