Cardi B is very tired of her success being linked in any way to the tragic death of Mac Miller, especially from people who she feels truly contributed to his mental health decline.
She is tearing Twitter a new one after someone tweeted about her 2019 Grammys win for “Invasion of Privacy.”
That year, Cardi’s debut studio album was nominated against Mac Miller’s “Swimming,” his final album and which just went platinum-certified earlier this year, according to Complex.
The tweet that set her off has since been deleted, but it apparently asked why mac Miller’s family was invited to that ceremony if he was going to posthumously lose to Cardi B. Apparently, she’s been resenting hearing about how Mac lost, because she poured out her frustration in a quote-RT.
“His family didn’t have no mean energy so why you?” she wrote. “I hate when ya make hate tweets like this to go viral but where was the love when ya bullied him for months on this app & he was crying out for help? Makin fun of him when he crash his car? Ya don’t care till somebody is gone.”
She also retweeted someone who mentioned that Cardi B dedicated her Grammy to Mac Miller’s memory at the time:
Some people argued with Cardi that the original deleted tweet wasn’t about her, but about the Grammys being messed up and bullsh-t, but I guess she’s been hearing it a lot over the last few years. She disagrees.
Cardi wanted to know why her name keeps coming up on Twitter, when social media was harassing and criticizing Mac up until his death:
She mentioned the recent Britney Spears documentary, too, which recently sparked a lot of conversation about the role the media and fans have in a celebrity’s public spiral. Cardi even suggested the goal of this harassment is to cause harm, just to produce more gossip for people to pick through:
Cardi B will be performing at the Grammys this Sunday, which will give everyone something else to talk about.
