Cardi B claims she has nothing to do with her official Facebook page as she attempts to deflect blame for a transphobic post.
“It’s come to my attention that there have been offensive posts made on what used to be my Facebook page,” Cardi wrote on Tuesday. Just hours earlier, a post appeared on her page using a transphobic slur.
But Cardi claims she has nothing to do with the page, writing, “For the past year and a half a FORMER team member has been the only one with access to the account.”
The page in question appears legit — and has the official blue checkmark on it — but Cardi could be making reference to the long-standing legal battle she is in with her former manager.
Cardi and Klenord “Shaft” Raphael have filed dueling lawsuits against each other.
Cardi B claimed she entrusted Raphael and his companies with many aspects of her business affairs and that trust was abused. He came back with a $10 million counter-suit and both cases remain ongoing.
