Cardi B Addresses Suicide Reference In Her Tweet
Cardi B is opening up about a post that hinted at suicidal thoughts. While the rapper going back and forth with trolls on the internet is nothing new, her post following the heated exchange worried fans.
“The only Mexican I know that don’t work hard,” one troll wrote, referring to Cardi not posting a surprise for her fans, as she allegedly promised. It also could refer to the fact that it has been five years since her debut album, Invasion of Privacy.
Cardi’s father is Dominican, and her mother is Trinidadian of African and Spanish descent.
She clapped back to the troll, writing, “Hope you and ur mom die.”
“IDGAF F— y’all … y’all can call me Mexican, bring me down and hurt my feelings talk s— about everything that’s why I don’t release music,” Cardi wrote back in a since-deleted tweet.
She then hinted at suicide by writing: “I just want to put a bullet in my head.”
Cardi B Talks To Fans About Suicide Hint
Cardi addressed her message on Instagram Live Thursday (Oct. 19).
“When I burst, I’m very outspoken,” she said to her fans. “When I get into one of my bad moments, I will literally curse everybody out, and I’ll be f—–’ like, ‘I want you to die. Bitch, I wanna die. I don’t give a f—!’ Because that’s just how I’ll be feeling in the moment.”
She continued: “I was just very overwhelmed yesterday. I was very sad. And, I don’t know — I feel like I was just having such a good week, and then, when I got home, and I started paying attention to so much s— that people were saying about me, and all the funny s— about me … I just started getting upset about it.”
The Bronx native previously talked about how trolls have impacted her music-making in the past.
“I used to love making music, but now, making music to me has become like a job that gives me anxiety,” Cardi B said on Instagram Live back in December. “Everybody just critiques everything that I do, that it’s just like…you know, sometimes you just don’t want to do something that may give you that much anxiety. So I just be like, “Uh!” — freezing myself but I have to let that go. I have to release more music — I have to go out there.”
