Cardi B Opens Up About Police Putting Her In Chokehold
Last week, Cardi B tweeted that an NYPD officer put her in a chokehold.
Later, the “Bodak Yellow” hit maker deleted the tweets, leaving fans wondering what exactly happened. Fast forward to the present day and the 24-year-old former Love & Hip Hop NY star explains her version of what went down.
In an interview with 99 Jamz, Cardi says that she and her cousin got into an altercation while in traffic with a man who hit her car windows. The outspoken emcee says that her cousin and the other driver got out of the car and were about to fight when Cardi threw her shoe at the man.
Out of nowhere a motherfucka put me in a chokehold like a chicken wing.
There’s two men that are about to square up, but you’re so p*ssy you won’t even hold back the men, you’re gonna put the female in a chokehold.
Cardi claims that the police made efforts to get her to make a statement following the incident, but that she decided not to because she didn’t think it would help the situation. She also says that she didn’t know the officer’s identity. Following the incident, the NYPD released a statement that they had no evidence to support Cardi B’s claims. To this, Cardi responds,
You guys be lying, and this is why I don’t talk to you guys. It really hurt me that motherfuckers really releasing evidence. You don’t even know where it happened.
It’s not even about me. It’s because NYPD is the biggest gang in New York. And that really bothers me.
