Cardi B is firing back after a United States Congressman said on the House floor that her Grammys performance is part of "the moral decline of America."
The rapper's highly-sexual performance last month on the Grammys was one of the most buzzed about moments from the awards show. On April 22, more than a month after the Grammys, Rep. Glenn Grothman, a Republican from Wisconsin, said his office "rightfully" received complaints about Cardi's act.
While reading his prepared speech, the Congressman said the people complaining "wonder why we are paying the FCC if they feel this should be in living rooms across the nation."
He also took a shot at Vice President Kamala Harris for "promoting" Cardi's music and added that the performance of "WAP" on the Grammys was "inconsistent with basic decency"
"Wake up, FCC, and begin to do your job," he complained. "The moral decline of America is partly due to your utter complacency."
After the speech, Cardi blasted the politician for focusing on her, as opposed to other issues, particularly the topic of police brutality in light of the Derek Chauvin verdict.
"This gets me so mad ya don't even know! I think we all been on the edge this week since we seen police brutality back to back including watching one of the biggest case in history go down DUE to police brutality but wait ! This is [what] state representative decide to talk about," she tweeted, adding a thinking emoji.
Cardi followed up that tweet by railing against Congressmen and Congresswomen like Rep. Grothman for not getting "proper justice" for Jacob Blake, a Black Wisconsin man who was shot several times by police last summer in front of his children.
She said, "This is why people gotta vote, elect better people…"
