Cardi B Fans Are Schooling Her On The Deadly Consequences Of Her Transphobic Jokes And Comments

The trans community and its allies have officially put Cardi B on notice about their request for an apology. Over the weekend the “Invasion of Privacy” rapper upset her fans and followers on social media after posting a transphobic meme to her official Facebook account on Sunday.

The transphobic meme quickly made the rounds on Facebook and Twitter.

Twitter.com

The meme featured an illustration of a person  looking out an open door with the words “I hope nobody see this tr—y leave my house.” The image was followed up with a series of laugh and skull emojis. In the hours after it was first posted, the meme was promptly taken down, but not before various commentators slammed the rapper for the meme and created the hashtag #CardiBIsOverParty.

Soon after, various prominent faces of the trans community spoke up to condemn the meme.

Various users on Twitter and Facebook expressed their pain over the meme including “Orange Is The New Black” star Laverne Cox and “Pose” actress Angelica Ross. Both women responded to the meme by underlining the ongoing epidemic of violence and homicidal acts against trans women.

“Black trans women are being killed because of jokes like this. These niggas are killing us to keep women like you @iamcardib from finding out. Cause you’ll make fun of their manhood. This is how you encourage toxic masculinity that only ends up hurting you too sis! Apologize,” Ross wrote in a post to her Twiter account.

In response to the backlash, the rapper took to her social platforms to explain that she had not been responsible for the post. “It’s come to my attention that there have been offensive posts made on what used to be my Facebook page. For the past year and a half a FORMER team member has been the only one with access to the account.”

“We’ve tried educating her she clearly doesn’t care and it’s time to hold her accountable. The average life expectancy for a trans woman of color in America is 35 years old, we don’t need Cardi putting transphobic content out” one user wrote in response to Cardi B’s apology and meme.

It’s not the first time Cardi has faced backlash for similar comments. An older video of the rapper using the slur “tr–ny” began to resurface in the hours after the meme was posted. The video shows Cardi B suggesting that she would punish a male partner by having him take part in a threesome with her while being unaware that he was also sleeping with a trans person.

The rapper has been forced to explain her use of the slur in a previous interview. “Like I didn’t know that that was a word that you cannot use, especially because my trans friends use it and growing up, my parents never told me that that was a bad word,” Cardi B said. “You know, there’s bad words that your parents teach you that you’re not supposed to say. Nobody taught us that. Nobody taught us that in our school.”

This Quietly Posted IMDB Page Could Mean ‘Coco 2’

To say our worlds were rocked when Pixar finally gave us a touching film about la cultura a few years ago would be the biggest understatement of the century. ‘Coco,’ the 2017 American 3D computer-animated fantasy starring Gael García Bernal and Benjamin Bratt filled our hearts and also brought us to tears. Still, as satisfying as the film was, there’s no doubt it left us craving more. And it looks like we might just get it.

An IMDB page for Coco 2 has been created and I’m sorry but I can’t stop freaking out!!

According to IMDB user anthandsoc-95189 who appears to have long had the inside scoop on upcoming films, ‘Coco 2: Return To the Land Of the Living’ is in the works! Some digging around has also revealed that another sight might have information on the plot and characters of the sequel film. Of course, this information has yet to be confirmed and might be purely a wish, but if it is we’ll dream big!

According to IMDB ‘Coco 2’ will take place 6 years after the first film

The IMDB page says “It’s been 6 years since the events happened for Miguel. But when Hector, Imelda, and his great grand-abuelos need Miguel’s help to come back to the Land of the Living because some mysterious sinister masked skeleton is haunting and rules their world with an iron fist and sword and hates music.”

Which means, if IMDB is correct, we haven’t seen the last of Mama Coco!

Sweet Coco could have a really big role in the new film!!

Of course, other sites have other insights into the could-be sequel…

Because of course everyone has an opinion!

According to Fandom.com ‘Coco 2’ will take place six years after the first film.

We’ll see Miguel’s family attempt to throw him a fiesta, but sadly Miguel, still upset about Mama Coco’s death, will be upset.

When Miguel meets a sophisticated, ghostly and well-bred skeletal spirit Miguel will attempt to return to The Land Of The Dead for a vacation.

Now that’s an insane idea for a spring break.

In this version of the sequel, Miguel will a dark black hole to go back to The Land Of The Dead, to see Papa Hector and Mamma Imelda.

Of course, Miguel will be astonished when he sees his old family members for another time and finally gets to see Mama Coco.

Soon enough, Miguel is racing against time, once again, to avoid being a skeleton.

But this time, Marcel might not be so bothered by the idea of living amongst the dead for forever.

Of course, all of this is speculative. Who knows if Pixar has plans for a sequel in the works, but as one fan points out this clip by Pixar on the DVD release has some great hints!

“I had to go ‘oh yeah, you wanna fuck me? Yeah yeah yeah let’s go to this hotel.’ And then I’d drug [expletivie] up and I’d rob them. That’s what I used to do.”

Users online were quick to comment.

“The fact that cardi b admitted to drugging and robbing men she would take back to a hotel for sex blows my mind,” wrote Twitter user @itsangelaa. “That’s not ‘keeping it real.’ that’s a crime.”

“I wonder what woulda happened if it were the other way round,” @BTSisthecauseo5 commented.

At the onset of the backlash, the rapper seemed to take the comments rather lightly.

The following day she also tweeted “IM THAT BITCH THEY LOVE TO HATE, IM THAT BITCH THEY HATE TO LOVE and I love it.”

On Tuesday, however, after users on Instagram and Twitter continued to simmer, she was forced to issue comment.
