Cardi B hits back at accusations of Queerbaiting

Renowned rapper Cardi B is addressing accusations of 'queer baiting' caused by her appearance in Normani‘s recent music video, 'Wild Side'.

Cardi B took to Twitter on Friday to fire back at an article published by a media outlet, alleging that she was among the celebrities who have capitalized “on the suspicion that they may be romantically involved with another same-sex person for the sake of publicity, promotion or a capitalistic gain.”

The 29-year-old music sensation said:  “I’m married to a man but I have express soo much about my bisexuality and my experiences with girls. All of a sudden ‘queer baiting’ is the new word & people use it to the ground”.

In another tweet, Cardi B added, “I don’t like this new ‘queer baiting’ word. I feel like it pressure artist to talk about their sexuality or their experiences that they don’t feel comfortable speaking about. If an artist kiss a girl on a video does that means she gotta show videos & text  with other women?”

Normani was also criticised on Instagram by a user and accused of something similar, which was later shared across Twitter. In a recent video for her song ‘Wild Side,’ featuring Cardi B, the two are pictured naked and gyrating against one another.
