Cardi B Gets Into Twitter Spat With The Shade Room

Actress and Rap superstar Cardi B came for The Shade Room on Sunday night July 10th. Cardi accused the gossip outlet of posting “only negative” content about her, muting her comments, and ignoring her dms in an attempt to “gaslight” her.

The Shade Room denied her allegations, arguing that they provide “fair” coverage of the rapper. They also claimed she asked them to post about her in a recorded phone conversation.

What Happened?

The quarrel began when The Shade Room posted Cardi B’s four-year-old daughter Kulture on Instagram on her birthday. Cardi asked the outlet to delete the post in both the comments and on Twitter before airing out her grievances with the company.

“Cause my thing is …okay you only post negative content bout me, cool no biggie. Got me blocked from commenting on their page ok cool,” she tweeted. “but please don’t post my child on yall funny ish. I don’t want to be old self but just leave me alone.”

The Shade Room responded by providing evidence of several positive posts they’ve made about her in the past. “Whats the phone number of the lawyer you used in your defamation case because we tryna see something,” Shade Room wrote, referencing Cardi’s $4 million dollar victory over Tasha K in court. “Is this the ‘only negative’ content you are referring to?”

Cardi B Explains Herself:

Cardi B pressed on her issues with The Shade Room in a series of video messages. In the video Cardi accused the gossip outlet of doing “shady shit” while pleading to “take it easy” on her.

“I DM’d you guys but, of course, you guys ignore me, and that’s why I had to take it publicly,” she said. “Clearly, you guys have me muted from commenting on your page. That’s why when I comment, nobody can see my comment and I actually have screenshots of it, and that’s why I posted it.”

“So now you guys want to gaslight me. And if you guys are not doing shady shit on purpose, why mute me from commenting? Then you guys post certain things positive about me so y’all can continuously post negative things about me that you don’t do to other artists.”

“Example: the thing with Lil Kim with the Lip Service. You guys literally edited the video and posted things that sounded kinda funny so people could drag me… Also, you guys post funny things when it comes to my music releases. You guys ignore completely when I do really good performing — anything that’s positive about me.”

She added, “I’m a person and I have feelings. I’m not a crazy person, I’m not this ghetto person. I’m not this person that’s trying to make narratives about me. You guys clearly know what you’re doing; if you wasn’t, you wouldn’t have muted me.

“But my thing is, take it easy on me. I’m a person as well and I’m trying to protect my best, my mental health. It’s too much. We could’ve had this conversation on DM, but clearly you guys are ignoring me so now we have to I guess do it like this.”

Shade Room Responds:

The Shade Room responded, “What y’all don’t understand is we have to get permission from owners to post videos to our page. No permission, no post. We show @iamcardib tons of love but because we couldn’t get permission for some of the positive wireless fest videos she gets to lie and say ‘only negative.’”

Cardi responded, “Wait how can u say that ,when have you ever ask me to ever post anything about me? If that’s true you got my publicist # why not ask her shit why not ask me on Dm? Like this arguments are so stupid!The gaslighting it’s insane.”

The Shade Room denied muting Cardi B’s comments and claimed she asked them to post about her family during a recent call. 

“You were not blocked from commenting. Please stop the LIES,” the outlet wrote. “We are only addressing your comment on negative content we didn’t bring up your daughter. And YOU called ME asking why we don’t post your family! Lie again and I’ll put out the receipts.”

Cardi B responded by pulling out receipts of her own, uploading a video of her comment on the outlet’s Instagram appearing several comments down the page. Ordinarily comments from verified accounts appear at the top.

“Why would I lie ? I have no reason to lie & same things wit the post from today,” she wrote. “& when have I ask you that?….oooo we can post receipts best believe I recorded the convo that we had on the phone .I don’t even know why y’all want to do all of this”

Cardi B Shares The DMs:

The rapper also shared a video of a recent dm conversation with The Shade Room. The conversation shows the outlet asking Cardi to be apart of their upcoming Drip Codez series which she agreed to. Weeks later, Cardi asked if she had been “shadow banned” from commenting on their page and wrote “Well that was kinda shady and mean of y’all.”

“Never ask y’all to post about my can’t show a dm or nothing of me askin u that,” she tweeted. “and I’m not dumb to post that call but trust I got it and even on that call never asked y’all that shit Stand on y’all truth .All of this but ignore me a couple of days ago when I dm yall.”

Shade Room Wants Phone Convo Leaked:

The Shade Room pleaded for Cardi to post their recorded phone conversation. This conversation allegedly contains “other things” she doesn’t “want out in public”. While sharing a video proving their DMs had been “acting up.”

“You don’t need lawyer papers lol. I’m giving you my permission publicly to post the recorded convo. You can use this tweet in court if I ever tried to sue. Post it,” they wrote. “As far as the dm you sent our DMs have been acting up so it says we saw it but we actually can’t load or see it.”

Cardi claims the Shade Room is trying to “bait” her into posting the conversation so that they can take legal action against her.

“I’m not deflecting I’m just no dumb,” she responded to a fan. “The twitter account is asking to post it not the actual person I had the conversation with. The person I had the convo wit have to give authority that’s why they trying to bait me to post it so they can put me in some legal bullshit”

Cardi denied the outlet’s claim that she spoke bad of another celebrity during phone call. She tweeted, “I gave multiple receipts today and yet y’all have posted none. Now y’all LYING to the public again making it seem like the convo was about other people when the convo was about this SAME SHIT YALL DOING NOW! SEND THEM PAPERS AND MAKE SURE THEY FROM THE PERSON I HAD THE CONVO WITH!”

No legal actions were taken due to Cardi B and The Shade Room managing to settle their differences. A majority of their tweets have since been deleted.

“You know what, let’s handle this like adults. Angie let’s get on the phone @TheShadeRoom,” Cardi tweeted early Monday morning (July 11).

The outlet later announced, “Just spoke to @iamcardib and we were able to come to a resolution. We’re putting the issue to rest and moving on. Cardi, we wish you the best and continued success. Glad we found a way to move forward peacefully. What happened earlier was bad, but how it ended is good.”
