As she was getting dragged on Twitter for not attending the Grammy Awards Sunday night, Cardi B appeared to delete, or at least deactivate, her account.
Fans were upset because they believed the rapper, who was nominated for best rap performance for "Up," would be at the ceremony. She got into back-and-forth with some commenters on the social network, during which she firmly denied that idea: "When did I hype y’all up ? Where and when did I ever gave hints ? Like are you ok ? I’m not going to a award if I don’t got a new song to perform Or my album ain’t out …Next year."
Things got ugly, with Cardi saying she hoped one Twitter user's "moms die," telling another to "drink acid," and more.
When a commenter replied to those tweets by referencing one of Cardi's kids with her husband, rapper Offset, and claiming the child is autistic, Cardi replied: "None of my kids are autistic … Don’t project what you got on my kids the f---."
Shortly after, she posted, "I’m deleting my Twitter but on God I hate this f----- dumb--- fan base. You got the slow dumb----- dragging my kids all cause y’all [thought] I was going to the Grammys and I didn’t ... I can't. I needs to protect myself.”
Her account then went dark, but she went live on Instagram shortly thereafter.
She said, "Why would I show up for one nomination? If you bring up my son, I wish the worst on you. I hate you."
She also clarified, "I never said there was nothing [sic] wrong with people who have [autism], but don’t put that on my f---ing kid."
