If you’ve been watching any FOX News recently, you would think that Cardi B’s performance at the Grammys of her hit single “WAP” was an issue of national security. White supremacist host Tucker Carlson and black conservative activist Candace Owens — infamous for her public defense of Hitler — did an extensive complaining session on the night of the awards show about how Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s performance — which took place at 10pm — was too sexual and further evidence of the degradation of family values and the imminent collapse of western civilization as we know it, yadayadyada.

It’s the same old boring schtick that the right-wing has used to dress up their racism since the days of Bill O’Reilly’s feuds with rappers over their lyrical content and the waistlines of their pants, but it’s red meat to the decaying boomers that tune in every night for their daily hour of racial hate from Tucker Carlson.
Owens, struggling to find some kind of mainstream relevance, seized on the opportunity to start a clout-chasing feud with the superstar rapper and began publicly slut-shaming her on Twitter for her risque costumes and explicit language.
You are insecure and I irk you because I see right through the facade.
You are a part of a larger cancer that is manifesting in black culture.
There’s no person in America who can look you in the face and honestly say they wish they’re daughters turned out like you. https://t.co/VFDnA8hi6u

But Cardi B had the last laugh by throwing the Trump-worshiping Owens’ hypocrisy right back in her face with one of Melania’s more explicit modeling photographs, one no different than some of the outfits Cardi chooses to wear during her music videos.
There’s nothing wrong with either woman wearing whatever she likes whenever she likes. But it’s appalling for Owens to pull this tired, patriarchal morality nonsense about musical performers after spending so many years defending and promoting a racist serial sexual predator who openly defied every so-called “family value” that Owens and her fellow conservatives pretend to care about.
The finger-wagging and public shaming alongside the whitewashing and excusing of male aggression that perpetuates rape culture in America, and nobody who has ever defended Donald Trump should ever be allowed to talk about “morality” in any way, shape, or form.
