Cardi B Shut Down Fan Pregnancy Rumors In The Most Cardi B Way

Pregnancy rumors seem to come with the territory for female celebrities. In the last year alone, Miley Cyrus, Kendall Jenner, and Rihanna have all been the target of articles theorizing about their body weight, though none of them were accurate (Cyrus credited her “bump” to tofurkey and Jenner protested that she just has an affinity for bagels).

This week, Cardi B found herself the latest victim of pregnancy rumors with her newfound fame, though she isn’t exactly here for the casual body-shaming.

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper and instant gif queen uploaded a video to Instagram this weekend teasing her new remix, and dancing in a tight-fitting wrap-around dress.

“Is there maybe a Kylie Jenner secret that we need to know about,” some misguided soul commented on her Instagram video, referring to the youngest Jenner’s rumored-though-unconfirmed pregnancy. “lol Just asking.”

*inhales deeply* “Just asking” if someone is pregnant is a form of body-shaming and is no different from asking outright if someone gained or lost weight. The societal practice of commenting on women’s bodies without invitation needs to be changed — and fast.

Unsurprisingly, Cardi B had it covered.

“No b-tch I’m just getting fat,” she answered, much to her 17 million followers’ amusement. “Let me fat in peace.”

We don’t deserve her.
