Cardi B Has Deleted Her Instagram

The Queen of "Okurrr!" has gone missing... from Instagram, anyway. Since Saturday, Cardi B has deleted her Instagram account and made her Twitter profile private. Sources say that this has to do with Cardi B's ongoing feud with fellow female rapper, Azealia Banks.

Figurative shots were fired on Friday when Banks was interviewed on The Breakfast Club and referred to Cardi B as an "illiterate, untalented rat" and said that she was a "caricature of a black woman". Yikes.


As you might be able to imagine, these insults didn't sit too well with Cardi B. She took to Instagram before her account was deleted to say, "I'm from the hood. I speak how I speak. I am how I am. I did not choose to be famous -- people chose me... I never asked to be an example or a role model. I don't want to change my ways because I'm famous".

Then according to sources at The Shade Room, the top-ranking rapper called out Banks for bleaching her skin.


In retaliation for that comment, Banks attacked Cardi B's pregnancy as well as her relationship with Offset saying "You're a real life episode of Maury, sis", referring to the talk show, Maury with host Maury Povich who typically has guests wishing to prove or disprove paternity status of their children.


Feuds among rappers is nothing new. Some might say that it comes with the territory. But it seems that after trading a few barbs online, Cardi B had had enough of the online drama and decided to disconnect from it all.

Before she unplugged from the 'Gram, she sent out one final thorny message for Banks stating that the difference between the two women is that she has never pretended to be something she isn't and has stayed true to herself, implying that Banks has not.

She also smashed Banks for calling her illiterate by saying that just because someone uses big words and long sentences that doesn't necessarily mean that they are smart. "How smart are you if you don't know that the meaning of illiterate means to not know how to read or write. I can do both, and speak two languages fluently". She added that just because she mixes up or misspells a few words, or forgets to use commas, does not mean that she is stupid, and that because she laughs a little harder or talks a bit louder doesn't make her a caricature.

We have to say that choosing to disengage from the digital drama seems like the more mature thing to do. So long, keyboard warriors!
