#SurvivingCardiB Trends On Twitter After Shocking Video

#SurvivingCardiB is the latest trending hashtag on Twitter. The hashtag, derived from the Lifetime documentary series Surviving R. Kelly, was created following the exposure of an Instagram live video Cardi had posted in the past. The rapper is receiving tons of backlash from fans and critics debating whether or not she should be supported in her career.

Cardi B had recently spoken about her plans to write a book chronicling the details of her life, living in the streets, and trying to be a respectable role model. However, things started to get a little heated when the viral video showed the rapper confessing to drugging and robbing men she used to come in contact with. “I had to go strip, I had to go, ‘Oh yeah, you want to f*ck me? Yeah, yeah, yeah, let’s go back to this hotel,’ and I drugged n***as up, and I robbed them. That’s what I used to do.”

Twitter users went wild after the star’s public statement. Making comparisons to Bill Cosby and R. Kelly, many have stated that if a male had confessed to such wrongdoings, he would be receiving much harsher treatment.

I’m done with my @iamcardib commentary. I’ve been saying this since she came out she represents the worst in popular culture is a horrible example for girls and women and should not be put up on a pedestal. #survivingCardiB

As a woman if you’re defending Cardi B, you’re a DISGRACE and a pathetic human being. I don’t wanna hear shit about anything being equal if you can’t hold this dirty hood bird to the same mf standard that we hold men. #SurvivingCardiB pic.twitter.com/fPeWtUopsG

Despite criticism, other women are defending Cardi, stating that men never hold their male counterparts accountable in related situations.
