Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion have received backlash for their performance at the Grammys on Sunday (March 14).
Conservative commentator Candace Owens appeared on Tucker Carlson’s FOX News show, where she said that the performance was “an attack on American values.” Owens stated, “I mean Dr. Seuss, gone. Mr. Potato Head, problematic, not enough genders available. We’ve seen going through the supermarket as a traumatizing experience. We lost Aunt Jemima last year. We lost Land O’Lakes butter last year. We lost Uncle Ben and his rice last year because everything is so traumatizing for children to look at.
“But this? This spectacle? Virtually what we were looking at last night was a lesbian sex scene being simulated on television, and this is considered feminist. It’s iconic. It’s forward. It’s progressive.”
Cardi responded on Twitter, sarcastically reacting to Candace and Tucker’s segment, and then adding, “Matter fact I’m just going to thank Candy. She put my performance on Fox News giving it more views that boosted the views on YouTube and is counting towards my streams and sales.”
She then added, “REMEMBER GROWN PARENTS ONLY YOU CAN MONITOR WHAT YOUR KIDS WATCH NO1 ELSE.”
