Cardi B and Candace Owens Twitter spat: criticisms of WAP Grammy Performance

Cardi B, the hitmaker of WAP and eight-time Grammy nominee got into a battle of words on Twitter with Candace Owens, a political commentator. The Twitter battle took place after Owens spoke on FOX News on Tucker Carlson's show about Cardi B's Grammys performance of WAP. She said that Cardi B, through her performance is 'intentionally trying to degrade our (American) culture and hurt the children.'

"I don’t know why Candy is so bothered by ‘WAP.’ I was just inspired by our former First Lady,” the rapper tweeted on Tuesday, along with an inked-out nude photo of Melania Trump.

On Monday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson and his guest, conservative commentator Candace Owens, spent a near five-minute segment publicly denouncing the “WAP” performance. Cardi retweeted their segment, writing “Yaaaayyyyyyy WE MADE FOX NEWS GUYS !!! Wap wap wap.”

“They’re intentionally trying to degrade our culture and hurt our children,” Carlson said. Owens added that “Virtually, what we were looking at last night was a lesbian sex scene being simulated on television, and this is considered feminist.”

Carlson and Owens expressed outrage over how the performance is deemed acceptable, but lamented how other cultural touchstones, such as Dr. Seuss, Mr. Potato Head, and supermarket items have changed.

This feels more sinister. This is starting to me to seem like it’s not even left or right, it’s not a political issue. This seems like an attack on American values, American traditions, and you’re actively trying to make children aspire to,” Owens remarked.

Meanwhile, they played several clips of the performance that had them up in arms. “We are celebrating perversity in America,” Owens added.

“Anyways congrats on your new show I hope you speak more about ‘WAP’ I need it to reach a new Audience to go 6x platinum,” Cardi B wrote on Tuesday. “Any exposure will help. Love your candy.” The tweet spawned several heated exchanges between Cardi and Owens that continued on Tuesday.
