Cardi B Deactivates Instagram Account After Grammy Awards Win Backlash
Cardi B has officially shut down her Instagram account.
After venting about the backlash she’s seen after her Invasion of Privacy album won the award for Best Rap Album at the 2019 Grammy Awards, Cardi deactivated her IG account on Monday evening (Feb. 11). She doesn't appear to have given any explicit reason for this deactivation, but it's not much of a stretch to say that negative comments from the social media world could have played a role in her sudden IG departure.
In a now-deleted video Cardi posted earlier today, she spoke about the negativity she'd seen surrounding her name. It was probably because of this negativity that Cardi thanked J. Cole, who had given her a shoutout for winning the gramophone as he discussed his own perception of the award.
"[I] don’t never wanna be propped up by tearing somebody else down," Cole began in the tweet he posted earlier today. "Seeing Cardi b win a Grammy make me feel like I won. Same with jay rock and Anderson. I feel for Travis cuz he really deserved that acknowledgement as well, but his moment is way bigger than the awards could say."
In a post she uploaded with a screenshot of Cole's tweet, Cardi wrote,"Thanks @realcoleworld and everybody that was in the category had amazing albums !"
Here's to hoping Cardi stays up.
