Cardi B Denies Posting Transphobic Meme on Her Official Facebook Page

Rapper blames offensive post on former staffer

Cardi B denied Sunday that she posted a transphobic meme on her official Facebook, blaming the offensive post on a former employee with access to her account.

“It’s come to my attention that there have been offensive posts made on what used to be my Facebook page,” she wrote. “For the past year and a half a FORMER team member has been the only one with access to the account.”

TheWrap was able to capture the post, which has since been deleted.


A rep for the rapper did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Cardi could be referencing a legal battle involving her former manager, Klenord “Shaft” Raphael.

The singer sued Raphael over his handling of her business affairs. Raphael has filed his own lawsuit. Both cases are still ongoing.

This isn’t the first time the singer has been accused of being insensitive to the LGBT community.

In January, the she was forced to apologize after defending her then-fiance’ rapper Offset, after one of his verses included the line: “I cannot vibe with queers.”

While defending her now-husband, Cardi referenced a 2017 video in which she used the word “tranny.”
