Cardi B. Says The #MeToo Movement Ignored Video Vixens

Cardi B is speaking her mind and this time it is about the #METOO movement, which she felt ignored the women who were or are still video vixens… Speaking on sexual harassment within the music industry! You know what, she has a point…

You had a few who were black to speak up like Lupita N’yongo and Terry Crews just to name a few, but the #MeToo movement has ignored the black community completely. I wonder if there will ever be a day where black or mixed race women will be honest about the things that they’ve been through at the hands of their own men.

In the April issue of Cosmopolitan, which she is the cover girl, when asked about the #MeToo movement, she said she doesn’t see the support reaching women of the hip-hop world anytime soon.

According to the Hollywood Reporter:

According to Cardi, it’s not just the musicians and performers who deal with sexual harassment. Video models, often seen and not heard, are typically silenced when they discuss what they deal with, she said. “A lot of video vixens have spoke about this and nobody gives a fuck,” Cardi told Cosmo. “I bet if one of these women stands up and talks about it, people are going to say, ‘So what? You’re a ho. It don’t matter.'”

She even shared her personal experience on the matter. “When I was trying to be a vixen, people were like, ‘You want to be on the cover of this magazine?’ Then they pull their d—s out.” The focus on #MeToo came out of a larger conversation that Cardi had with Cosmo about the lack of respect for strippers. Cardi notably came into her own through Instagram — documenting her day-to-day life as a stripper in New York — before appearing on VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: New York and going five times platinum with her No. 1 Hot 100 hit “Bodak Yellow.”

The 25-year-old’s comments do not indicate a lack of belief in the movement; at the 2017 Grammy Awards, Cardi and her sister, Hennessy Carolina, graced the red carpet wearing white roses in support of sexual assault and harassment victims. She just wants women, regardless of occupation, to have their voices heard.

Cardi went on to call out the men who feign support for the #MeToo cause, hinting that they only do so to avoid scandals of their own. “These producers and directors … they’re not woke, they’re scared,” she told Cosmo.
