Cardi B will be moving forward without a social media presence on Twitter.
The rapper shocked fans over the weekend when she deleted her Twitter page after a misunderstanding about her absence at the 2022 Grammys caused some fans to troll her.
Cardi B Deletes Instagram Page In Outrage
On the night of the highly-anticipated Grammy Award, members of the #BardiGang took to Twitter to call out Cardi after her absence was noticed at the award ceremony.
One fan complained, “My thing is why hype us up if you know you not going from the jump? She needs to take her fans more seriously because this is getting ridiculous.”
Cardi then responded, “when did I hype y’all up? Where and when did I ever gave hints? Like are you ok? I’m not going a award if I don’t got a new song to perform or my album ain’t out. Next year but shawty you gotta chill THE F**K [sic]”
Another angered member of the BardiGang bemoaned the rapper for not giving her fans what they desire. The fan wrote, “as fans that barely get fed WE WANT TO SEE YOU, what do you expect? You could have said something period.”
In response, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper wrote, “unmmmmm wtf you want me to say I been posting on my IG stories where I been at…like clearly I’m in my house and I’m in NY [sic].”
The back and forth between Cardi and her fans went on for quite a while until a netizen seemingly crossed the line, bringing Cardi’s son into the equation. The fan wrote, “I bet yo son wouldn’t like for you to be on your a** while teasing us fans and not ever dropping music…”
The “Hustlers” star couldn’t take it and after hurling an insult at the netizen announced her desire to delete her page. “I’m deleting my Twitter On God I hate this f**kin dumba** fan base,” she tweeted. “You got the slow dumba**es dragging my kids all cause y’all [thought] I was going to the Grammys and I didn’t the f**k?
The Rapper Deleted Her Page To Protect Herself
Concluding her rant, Cardi wrote, “just f**king stupid I can’t I need to protect myself.” Shortly after deactivating her account, Cardi took to Instagram Live to explain the reason behind her shocking move.
The 29-year-old revealed why she got “irritated” by her fans for calling her “lazy” despite her Instagram Story update showing that she would spend the day doing some self-care.
Cardi defended herself, saying that she shared a post hours before the ceremony of her in New York with her kids making noise in the background. Explaining her decision to sit out this year’s award, Cardi said, “Do I have any new music? Why would I show up with one nomination? And I lost it anyways, so you wanted me to go to the Grammys, lose and award, and me just be there smiling like, ‘That’s great, that’s great.’ Like, come on now my n—a. Come on now. I don’t like that s**t.”
She concluded, noting she was used to people talking smack about her but when the heat comes from her own fans it “piss the f**k out of me.”
A Previous Fight With The BardiGang
This isn’t the first time Cardi has had a heated conversation with her fans that led to her threatening to deactivate her Twitter account. As The Blast reported, in early March, the “WAP” rapper got into it with the BardiGang over her decision not to share details about her son.

Since welcoming her son in September 2021, Cardi and her husband Offset have kept details of the infant a secret, including his name and what he looks like.
However, after much plea from fans, Cardi teased a photo of the toddler on Twitter, uploading an up-close image of her son’s eyes, showing off his lengthy and full eyelashes. Alongside the picture, she wrote, “That’s all y’all will get.”
However, many fans weren’t pleased and came for the rapper. Some accused her of trying to steal the spotlight from another rapper who was trending on the platform while others didn’t appreciate that she didn’t upload a full picture.
At the time, Cardi threatened to delete her page, writing, “How people mad cause people was asking me to see my son and I replied? It seems like I can’t do or say nothing these days without people getting irritated…maybe I should delete my social medias or just die cause Wtff?”
It seems she has no followed up on her threat and no one knows if she would ever make a return!
