Cardi B claps back at Azealia Banks with the perfect video of Azealia singing "Bodak Yellow" in the club.
In case you missed it yesterday, Azealia Banks made headlines after she called out Cardi B and her recent success of her #1 single “Bodak Yellow” by saying the support from black men has been too much for “this Latina girl,” and that she’s a poor man’s version of Nicki Minaj. "I'm sorry. Black industry men are too hype for this Latina girl I've never seen them jump like this for remy or nicki,” Azealia said before later adding “I wanted spicy Latina and she gave me poor mans nicki,” when someone referenced her being a fan of Cardi B at one time.
Well ever since Azealia made these comments on twitter Monday, fans have been patiently waiting for Cardi’s response, knowing it was probably going to be a good one, and it definitely was. On Tuesday night, Cardi decided to hop on Instagram and respond to Azealia by sharing a clip of Banks’ singing and going nuts in the club to “Bodak Yellow,” the very song she was ripping her for.
“One of the reasons Bodak Yellow went #1! Cuz even the HATERS love it!,” Cardi perfectly captioned the clip.
Fans instantly starting ripping Azealia in the comments section of the clip, with one person saying “You look stupid now sis. @azealiabanks” and another adding “Waittttt the same one that was just talking shit,” while many others just left crying emojis.
This clap back comes just days after Cardi’s “Bodak Yellow” went #1 in the country, surpassing Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do.” As a token for her appreciation & respect, Taylor even sent Cardi a bouquet of flowers to show love for her success and single. Pretty cool move from Swift if you ask me (see below).
