Cardi B deactivated her Instagram page on Monday night after a tumultuous day that should have been one of the best of her life.
One day after winning the Grammy for Best Rap Album, Cardi responded to the backlash over her historic victory with a video where she ranted, “I’m seeing a lot of bulls**t today and I saw a lot of s**t last night and I’m sick of this s**t. I worked hard for my motherf**king album.”
The rapper then got drawn into a controversy with BET and Nicki Minaj after the cable network shaded Nicki in a post that was supposed to celebrate Cardi’s win.
And finally, Cardi B received flowers congratulating her on her win with a note that quoted a Tom Petty song lyric. She posted a video on her Instagram Story … thanking Tom Petty for the flowers, even though he died in October 2017.
