Cardi B Gets Sued By MAGA Supporters

Cardi B and her sister, Hennessy Carolina, are now facing charges for a fight that broke out over Labor Day weekend.  The weather was perfect for a day on the beach in Suffolk County, New York. As a result, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper decided to soak up the sun with her sister and her sister’s girlfriend Michelle Diaz at a beach near Smith Point. Their trip to the beach originally seemed harmless until things went south and a lawsuit was filed weeks afterward.  Cardi B, Hennessy Carolina, and model Michelle Diaz are facing a lawsuit from beachgoers on Long Island. https://t.co/s6vzT0Ly5E pic.twitter.com/S5RzB7ZHN3 — Eyewitness News (@ABC7NY) September 23, 2020 According to the lawsuit filed in Suffolk County, three people claimed that they were at the beach when Cardi B and her group decided to block their vehicle. One of the plaintiffs was wearing a MAGA hat and decided to approach Diaz which prompted Carolina to begin filming the interaction.  The group claims that Cardi B’s sister “sprayed her copious spittle upon said plaintiffs as she raged.” This was alarming due to the dangers of the coronavirus, according to an official statement.  Always gotta say ALLEGED. Like the alleged racists filing a bogus lawsuit against cardi B claim alleged defamation when IT WAS ON CAMERA and there were witnesses, allegedly — pyow pyow (@honeyNOTvinegar) September 23, 2020 According to that statement, Carolina “knew or should have known that her spraying of spittle upon Plaintiffs at a time when COVID-19 virus infection was a nation-wide threat to all persons in the U.S., was assaulting, threatening and intimidating to said Plaintiffs.” Carolina then decided to post and share videos of the interaction on Instagram to her nearly 10 million followers. Those who filed the lawsuit are claiming that she edited the video to make herself seem innocent and therefore manipulated evidence for this case.  You wanna know why joe gotta talk to me Candice cause I have the #1 song & yet my sister can’t go to the beach in the Hampton’s wit out trump supporters harassing cause they were by themselves & Santa Claus was harassing my sis GF all because they are a Afro/Hispanic gay couple https://t.co/OLQX2mrzbp pic.twitter.com/ISfJStODme — iamcardib (@iamcardib) September 6, 2020 In fact, one stated that Carolina’s intended goal was “to remove portions thereof, and thereby hold plaintiffs in a false light, so as to tend to expose and in fact expose each plaintiff to public contempt, ridicule and disgrace and harm,” and that she also accused the plaintiffs of “racism.” Following the situation, Cardi B decided to tweet about the incident. Her stream of tweets included Carolina and Diaz discussing what happened from their perspective in an audio file. Cardi B shared her sister’s video with her followers on the platform as well.  Nooooo that big pink man was harassing my sister girlfriend to move her car for no reason and then my sister came there had a back and forth and they stood quit when she Wip that phone out .They was harassing 2 Women ! Ya going to catch the right fuckin one ! https://t.co/xcH1PvGVAB pic.twitter.com/rLym9O2yIU — iamcardib (@iamcardib) September 6, 2020 Cardi B, Hennessy Carolina and Michelle Diaz are now facing charges of defamation of character and violating civil rights to privacy. In addition, Carolina is also separately facing the charge of assault and battery.  John Ray, the plaintiffs’ attorney, made a statement to ABC New York about the situation.  “These peaceful Suffolk County residents were quietly enjoying a Sunday at the Smith Point beach with their families, when rap celebrity Hennessy Carolina suddenly approached them, raging, spitting, insulting, assaulting, defaming and threatening them, all the while videotaping them because one of them wore a MAGA hat,” Ray said.  He continued the statement by further explaining that “Hennessy, Cardi B and celebrity model Michelle Diaz deviously edited the videotape and published the edited version all over social media, across the world for all to see, and maliciously falsely labeled these residents and their families as ‘N…s’ and as racists. … Real threats of harm were made. They live in fear now. Their reputations have been ruined.” So Cardi b and her sister is getting sued for doing something anyone educated enough wouldve done….@iamcardib#CardiB #wap pic.twitter.com/lo1NKkO9wT — Ary☁ (@aryxari) September 23, 2020 Although none of the plaintiffs have the coronavirus or suffered physical injuries, Ray said that his clients are going to seek “substantial damages.”  The man in the video was referenced as “Karen,” “Pink Man” and “Santa Claus” by Cardi B, Carolina and Diaz.  When Karens get real mad… they sue! https://t.co/eM2WmQfCKh #CardiB — Perez (@ThePerezHilton) September 22, 2020 Cardi B has explained to her followers that Carolina and Diaz were being mocked and harassed because they were an Afro-Hispanic gay couple. However, the plaintiffs insist that the video was edited and manipulated to make them look bad and alter the true story.  At first I thought it was fake, but there’s really a lawsuit against Cardi B and her sister for telling off some Trump people at the beach down the road from me. For the record, good for Cardi and her sister 😂 — nicole (@okaycoley) September 22, 2020 Carolina said that they were harassed because the group “saw us parking here and we were speaking Spanish and we’re mixed.” This situation has caused mixed reactions and feelings online. However, many are labeling this another “Karen” situation and taking the side of Cardi B and her sister.  The video of this incident has gone viral on social media. Both Cardi B and Hennessy Carolina have shared the footage with their millions of followers online. The video has now been deleted and removed from their profiles after the lawsuit was filed.  Lololol the Long Island MAGA people suing Cardi B for painting them as bigots. No honey, y'all painted yourselves that way. That red hat tells it all. — BRC 🌵 (@branlynn) September 23, 2020 In the since-deleted Instagram video, Cardi B stated: “Meanwhile not only you got racist [MAGA] supporters that are [lynching] ,racist cop shootings and killing black men all cause their leader make them feel like they could do so .My sister couldn’t even park her car today with out this man harassing her girlfriend soon as the camera [came] out they started being sweet.” This case is currently being looked into further.

Kim Kardashian-West Under Fire After Skims’ Maternity Launch

On September 16th, Kim Kardashian West’s shape wear company, Skims, will have released their new maternity line but the release comes with controversy. The new line will offer “sculpting” bodysuits, bras, shorts and briefs specially designed for pregnant, and nursing women. According to Kim’s Instagram, the line, “offers the best in comfort and support for your changing body during and after pregnancy.” The Controversy As soon as the brand announced the shape wear, disappointed celebrities and twitter users flooded Kim Kardashian with angry and concerned tweets concerning the body image of pregnant and postpartum women. Social media users were concerned about why pregnant women need shape wear, claiming that women should be proud of their pregnancy and not ashamed of their changing bodies. This comes after years of the Kardashian-Jenner family promoting a specific body type which was encouraged with waist trainers and spandex shape wear; not to mention the pressure they placed on themselves to lose baby weight following the birth of each of their children. Fans are worried that this is, once again, the Kardashian’s imposing unhealthy body image. And it is especially sensitive because it is now affecting pregnant women.  Celebrities and fans alike took to twitter to give Kim and Skims a piece of their mind.  The celebrity that started the conversation about Kim’s new line was Jameela Jamil. The Good Place actress shared her concern over Twitter, the same day the announcement for the line dropped. She said, “It would be so cool if pregnant people could just be allowed to be pregnant and get bigger and not be self conscious, and enjoy the miracle taking place inside their body and not have to worry about feeling embarrassed/shamed that their body is changing for an amazing reason.” It would be so cool if pregnant people could just be allowed to be pregnant and get bigger and not be self conscious, and enjoy the miracle taking place inside their body and not have to worry about feeling embarrassed/shamed that their body is changing for an amazing reason. — Jameela Jamil 🌈 (@jameelajamil) September 13, 2020 This started a slew of responses aiming at both Jamil and the maternity shape wear. Some were parents who had previously faced body image issues surrounding their pregnancies.  My dad came over after I hadn’t seen him for weeks due to lockdown and said ‘oh you’ve got fatter!’ And I knew he meant more pregnant but it left me feeling so insecure for the rest of the week. Nobody should be commenting on anyone else’s size ever. Ever. Pregnant or not — Alex (@malexwalex) September 13, 2020 For me, it was the time afterwards where I felt more pressure.'When will you be losing the weight?''Are you pregnant again? Oh, you just haven't lost your weight yet.' I'm proud of what my body did and I'm in no rush to look like I did before my son was born ❤ — Laura Vance (@laurajaynefox1) September 13, 2020 Standing by Maternity Shape Wear But the majority of comments were focused around Jamil’s lack of expertise in the pregnancy realm. Many parents in the comments were quick to point out the functionality of maternity shape wear, which has existed years before the Skims launch. In Kardashian-West’s defense, the shape wear is to better support a pregnant person’s growing tummy and the physical pressure on a person’s body.  having been pregnant 4 times it was really hard to find decent support for my belly, easing off my pelvis. I had to wear a belly band. Kim k’s maternity skims aren’t ‘shapewear’ they’re support. And I only hope more places start to sell something similar. — G (@elvonhar) September 13, 2020 Everyone criticizing #skims and @KimKardashian clearly have never met a pregnant person. You know they make pregnancy belts to hold up bellies, right? This shape wear is just that but cute. #chillout — Nicole (@smallinstature) September 14, 2020 @KimKardashian bravo on Maternity Skims! I wish I had this support when I was carrying my children. — Fay (@Fayizzle) September 14, 2020 This tweet even went as far as to claim that those in opposition to the launch are not taking pregnant disabled people into consideration. It’s also extremely ableist to assume that because you can do something with ease that everyone else will be able to. I imagine this doesn’t just help the average pregnant person but anyone carrying who might have disabilities of some kind.Very narrow minded indeed. — ~ ~ ~ ~ (@toltorg) September 14, 2020 Kim K’s Response Kim Kardashian-West was quick to respond to all the tweets, and responses flooding in about the controversy. She took to Twitter to release a statement. The KUWTK star said, “To anyone who has an issue with maternity solutionwear, and if you haven’t been pregnant before you may not know the struggle of what it’s like carrying all of this weight the way I did along with millions of strong women, @skims maternity line is not to slim but to support.” Based on the majority of positive feedback we have received so far from pregnant women around the world, I am incredibly proud to provide a solution that will provide comfort and support during the times that we all need it most, during pregnancy and after. — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) September 13, 2020 She followed her initial comeback with retweets and screenshots of mothers showing their support for her brand and new line.  Not only did her fans back her up, but her famous friends did as well. Most notably, Chrissy Teigen ran to Kim K’s defense. On her instagram, the model and cookbook author, showed off her Skims while pregnant with her third child. She told her followers that she was not trying to look any slimmer, but just wanted to feel more comfortable. Many people assumed that this was Teigen’s way of digging at Jamil’s previous tweet. Jamil was quick to let everyone know that the model’s post was not about her.  Just Spoke to Chrissy. She wasn’t talking about me in her video at all. The garbage way that tabloids try to set women upon each other to create a fantasy bitch fight for entertainment is so disgusting and archaic. We all know each other… you can’t just make shit up about us.🖕🏽 pic.twitter.com/tCuTQjQeYD — Jameela Jamil 🌈 (@jameelajamil) September 14, 2020 Drama seems to follow Kim Kardashian wherever she goes. This is not the first time her brand has faced controversy. In 2019, Kim originally planned to name her company ‘Kimono,’ which was followed by severe backlash, as the name was clearly appropriation of Japanese culture.  While the launch of Skims maternity line was met with anger, it was immensely welcomed by pregnant women among Twitter.
