In a series of tweets, she clapped back at now-deleted trolling – accusing the Trap Selena of being transphobic. Cardi said:
“I’m not transphobic.Ya love dragging that .Have I said some remarks in the past that I apologized for YES I’m from a place that people have closed mindsets so we might now now wat insults other or not I never disrespected no trans nor nobody from LGBT.”
She continued her rant, revealing that her glam squad – which includes gay men – still makes the hip-hop industry uncomfortable to this day:
“How many tweets and videos have I made supporting LGBT ? PlENTY !HOw much I support 2 on my glam team who I been experiencing they Transition?HARD!
