Cardi B took no prisoners with her cutting response to a Twitter account calling her out for not having publicly dated a woman. 

The rapper came out publicly as bisexual in 2018 after she featured in Rita Ora’s song Girls and opened up about her experiences “with a lot of women”. She’s been married to Migos’ Offset since 2017.
Despite having proudly spoken about her sexuality, Cardi was targeted in a tweet captioned: “Celebrities that came out as bisexual but never dated someone of the same gender.”

As well as Cardi, the tweet also included images of Harry Styles, Lady Gaga and Billie Ellish (only Lady Gaga has come out as bisexual).

Cardi B snapped back by quote tweeting: “I ate bitches out before you was born …..Sorry I don’t have razr phone pics to prove it to you.”

She added that she had a girlfriend when she was a freshman in high school. 

Many defended Cardi and criticised the original tweet for being biphobic.

Comedian Lane Moore wrote: “Here’s a reminder: You’re still bisexual even if you’ve never dated your same gender. You’re still bisexual even if you’re currently dating someone of the opposite sex. You don’t have to explain that to anyone ever.”


Despite being openly queer, Cardi B has regularly had to defend herself from “queerbaiting” accusations. 
She’s also faced criticism for historic comments which were labelled homophobic and transphobic to which she replied a long twitter thread.

In 2020 she said acknowledged the comments, tweeting: I said some ignorant things, before that, I apologised for & educated myself on it don’t mean I’m homophobic.”

She went on to explain she supports the LGBTQ+ community because of the “confused feelings” she had growing up about liking girls. 

In July 2021, she called out an article by Rolling Stone about queerbaiting celebrities saying that she “expresses so much about [her] bisexuality and [her] experiences with girls”.

She went on to tweet: “I don’t like this new ‘queerbaiting’ word. I feel like it pressures artists to talk about their sexuality or their experiences that they don’t feel comfortable speaking about.

“If an artist kisses a girl on a video does that means she gotta show videos and text with other women?”

The debate on queerbaiting which has recently targeted Harry Styles, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Bad Bunny and Kit Connor.

While some have complained about stars like Styles adopting queer aesthetics without being an out member of the community, many are beginning to call out the hypocrisy of fans wanting to force celebrities out of the closet.
