"I understand that she was disrespectful but it doesn’t give you the right to fat-shame her."
If you've ever had the pleasure of watching Love & Hip-Hop: NY, you'll probably know that Cardi B isn't one to go up against. When it comes to the internet and real-life trolls, the 'Press' rapper just can't hold her tongue. However, now she's receiving backlash for her quick-witted comments on Twitter.
Basically, it all started when an Instagram user threw shade at Cardi, calling her a "joke" for having help writing her songs. They added: "Stick to the movies love." The Hustlers star then responded beneath the post, commenting: "Aw. Stick to your diet."
People then accused Cardi of being "fatphobic".
You have every right to drag her for this hateful ass shit she keeps putting in your DMs and mentions (‘cause that shit is fucked up), but fatphobia is a *very* real thing, Belcalis.— Da'Shaun (@_iAmRoyal) September 24, 2019
Just don’t talk about other’s people bodies. It is so hard to be fat and confident. I understand that she was disrespectful but it doesn’t give you the right to fat-shame her. Also, you have like millions of followers who will bully her and you know it, so don’t play like this— I Think Kamil Knows ✨ (@chileanswiftie1) September 24, 2019
I got so many people on my followers list co-signing Cardi B’s fatphobia I’m purging. https://t.co/OY7LaHThEt— SiaMarieNotBinary (@sianotbinary) September 24, 2019
What you said wasn’t okay. You should have blocked her and kept it pushing.— Liz (@why_are_taken) September 24, 2019
However, others defended Cardi's clapback.

I don’t like Cardi B but I swear y’all are annoying. You can’t just harass her with hate comments and expect her to be nice. Yes, she is childish, but what is more childish is going through someone’s comments and commenting a bunch of bullshit.— Isabella (@2019thoughts) September 25, 2019
In response to the backlash, Cardi posted a string of tweets about the constant trolling she receives.
"So she can continuously leave hate comments on my page and on dm but asoon as I tell her to stick to her diet which she claim she was on I’m fatphobic ?" she tweeted. "Wtf is a fatphobic? LMAO! Lucky I ain’t said worst. Matter fact eat a dick! [sic]"
She added: "People are so soft now and days. How ya going to survive a lunch table [sic]?"

Cardi then went on to give more examples of how she's constantly being harassed about her personal life, and the fact that her husband Offset cheated on her.
She continued: "That was so corny like people be leaving cheating jokes all the time (some make me laugh )but this was sooo corny and then you had the nerve to put a moon like you said something. You kicked out off the lunch table .NEXT [sic]!"
