Rapper Cardi B is certainly no stranger to controversy and drama. This time she tweeted out that it is “good” to “choose violence” at least once a month and Twitter seems to have no problem with that sentiment despite their numerous rules and regulations that state otherwise.
Former President Trump’s Twitter account was removed because of the potential for violence and what the left has labeled as ‘incitement’. But Cardi B is actually saying it’s okay to get violent allegedly when it’s that time of the month. It would seem that when a celebrity does exactly what Trump is accused of, they get a pass on Twitter.
The full tweet reads: “Sometimes is ok to wake up and choose violence. At least once a month.” It should be noted that the rapper also tweeted out in May a video encouraging violent unrest after the death of George Floyd in Minnesota. According to NewsBusters, that video is still up on Twitter and states the following: “Seeing people looting and going extremely outraged, it makes me feel like, ‘Yes! Finally! Finally, motherf*ckers is gonna hear us now. Yeah!’ And as much as people is so against it, at this point I feel like I’m not against it.”
By contrast, Trump released a video on Twitter on Jan. 6 that actually told his supporters to go home after the riot. It eventually got him banned: “This claim of election fraud is disputed, and this Tweet can’t be replied to, Retweeted, or liked due to a risk of violence.”

Cardi B actually calls for violence and Trump’s tweets ‘risk’ violence… see the difference? Their determination of what should be removed and what should stay does not appear equal in the least.
The Rapper has 16.8 million followers on Twitter and seems to be in no danger of getting a time out or getting banned for her rhetoric. She tweeted this as well: “Motherf*ckers could take the grown and adult way and act peaceful. People are tired of that. So now this is what people have to resort to.” Again, that was in response to the violence in Minneapolis over Floyd’s death.
Cardi B claims she simply encouraged young voters to get out and vote to engender real change.
These aren’t the only instances of Cardi B. making waves, especially on video. She’s actually condoned drugging and robbing people in videos and has used racial slurs in the process. The rapper apparently gets a pass on her videos as well as her tweets regardless of her language or calls for violence.
Twitter is pretty clear in their policy that you can’t threaten violence or glorify it. Isn’t that exactly what Cardi B. is doing? And yet, the female rapper and other celebrity elites seem to just skate regardless of Twitter’s stated policy.
Twitter has done nothing about these incidents but then that is not really surprising. There are plenty of tweets that are left up out there calling for the same thing from celebrities, terrorists, leftists, and many others. Twitter is ostensibly choosing actual violent rhetoric over free speech.
