While many have praised Cardi B‘s sexually charged 2021 GRAMMY performance of ‘WAP’ as ‘female empowerment,’ others – including members of the Parents Television Council (click here to read) – blasted the Megan Thee Stallion-assisted song’s inaugural live rendition as ‘unfit’ for families with children to watch.
Among those up in arms from the ‘Up’ performer’s jaw-dropping performance was social and political commentator/author Candace Owens, whose criticism of the showing led to a heated exchange with Cardi on Twitter Tuesday (March 16).

As seen above, Owens was spotted on FOX News’ ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ sharing her thoughts about the ‘corrosive’ GRAMMY performance – an outing she called ‘the destruction of American values and American principles.’ Once the author-turned-outspoken TV personality learned Cardi was aware of her weigh-in, she took to Twitter to personally address the GRAMMY winner.
The mention ignited a string of back-and-forth insults between the ladies that culminated with Cardi sharing an old report that suggested Owens’ husband committed infidelity with her brother.
By the end of the lengthy exchange, a fiery Owens threatened legal action.
Longtime fans of Cardi know she’s no stranger to bumping heads with conservative TV personalities/FOX news affiliates. Just last year and the year prior the Rap diva publicly sparred with Tomi Lahren – even threatening to ‘dog walk’ the controversial commentator.
