Cardi B roasts conservative who thinks her 'Twerk' video isn't feminist

Cardi B for US President, please?
Cardi B has been taking the time to gather her haters recently and we're so here for it. The "Money" rapper threatened to "dog walk" conservative commentator Tomi Lahren, after she attempted to drag Cardi for commenting on the US government's lengthy shutdown. Well, now Cardi has clapped back at another conservative TV host, Stephanie Hamill, for trying to accuse her of "objectifying" women in her "Twerk" music video.
If you haven't seen Cardi B's collaboration with City Girls for "Twerk", you really should. "Twerk" dropped last week and it's basically one big 'ol booty shaking contest.
For the video, City Girls flew the world's best twerkers from all over the world out to an exotic location with the promise of a cash prize. Cardi B shows off her skills throughout and, at one point, she's wearing nothing but body paint and underwear. The ladies are clearly enjoying themselves, owning their sexuality, and there's not one man in sight.
That message didn't quite translate to Stephanie, though, who accused Cardi of not empowering women on Twitter. "In the Era of #MeToo how exactly does this empower women? Leftists, @iamcardib, feel free to chime in. THX .." Please, for your own safety, don't even think about coming for Cardi.
It says to women that I can wear and not wear what ever I want. do w.e I want and that NO still means NO. So Stephanie chime in..If I twerk and be half naked does that mean I deserve to get raped and molested ? I want to know what a conservative woman like you thinks 🤔 https://t.co/8UBQQzO6jK— iamcardib (@iamcardib) January 22, 2019
All these conservatives been harassing me and telling me the most disgusting things these past few days.Listen I’m not telling ya to turn liberal all I’m saying is to admit that your president is fuckin up this country right now! Liberal or conservative we ALL suffer as citizens.— iamcardib (@iamcardib) January 22, 2019
Soon, Cardi responded in the best way possible. She tweeted: "It says to women that I can wear and not wear what ever I want. Do w/e I want and that NO still means NO. So Stephanie chime in..If I twerk and be half naked does that mean I deserve to get raped and molested? I want to know what a conservative woman like you thinks."
Needless to say, Cardi B's message was well received. We're sick of being told what to wear.

Just Because She’s Having Fun & Twerking Doesn’t Mean She Should Be Touched In Places She Doesn’t Like; Sis Just Trying To Create A Wave 🤦🏽♀️✍🏽— 🥀Nanii - Nanii🌺 (@Naniii2Nanii) January 22, 2019
Because just like art at the museums - no matter how much someone might like our (women's) bodies they do not have the right to touch them. If you have an impulse at the met in ny to touch a painting - one doesn't step over the rope and say "well I can't control my urges"!— Gina Veshio (@VeshioGina) January 22, 2019

Eventually, Stephanie did reply to Cardi's tweet, writing: "I agree, No means NO, NO MATTER what! But this video, & others like this sexually objectify women.
"I think this hurts all women & the cause. We're not sex OBJECTS! Clearly we see things differently, (maybe I'm just a hater bc I can't Twerk) Come on my show, debate me!" Translation: please, please come on my show, I need the attention.
Conservatives have been gunning for Cardi ever since she voiced her opinion on Donald Trump but if there's one thing we've learned from watching her on Love & Hip Hop: New York – Cardi B is not the one.
