Her brand of feminism was being questioned.
Cardi B has been getting a lot of flack in the political sphere but the rapper doesn't seem to back down from the criticism so easily. After telling off Tomi Lahren, the emcee posted up against Stephanie Hamill, a conservative Washington, D.C. video columnist.
Hamill asked Cardi to clarify the values proposed by the music video for the "Twerk" music video in the context of the #MeToo movement. The "Bodak Yellow" star responded to the implied slut-shaming with by stating the clip's intention and asking a question of her own.

"It says to women that I can wear and not wear what ever I want. do w.e I want and that NO still means NO," Cardi tweeted. "So Stephanie chime in..If I twerk and be half naked does that mean I deserve to get raped and molested ? I want to know what a conservative woman like you thinks 🤔"
Political figures and commentators have been interacting with the entertainer recently due to her stance against the Trump administration as well. "All these conservatives been harassing me and telling me the most disgusting things these past few days," she wrote in response to this negative attention. "Listen I’m not telling ya to turn liberal all I’m saying is to admit that your president is fuckin up this country right now! Liberal or conservative we ALL suffer as citizens."
