Cardi B is opening up about a #MeToo moment she experienced while navigating the music industry.
Sitting down with Angie Martinez for WE tv’s “Untold Stories of Hip Hop,” the Grammy-winning rapper recalled the time she was sexually harassed during a magazine photo shoot earlier in her career.
“I will never forget how I went to shoot for this magazine and like the photographer, he was trying to get close to me,” said Cardi. “Like, ‘Yeah, you want to get into this magazine?’ And he pulled his dick out. I was so fucking mad.”
She said she left the shoot and informed the magazine owner of the inappropriate behavior. “You know what’s so crazy? I told the magazine owner, and he just looked at me like, ‘So? And?’” she continued. “When I see the #MeToo movement, there’s girls from the ‘hood, I know that they went through the same type of treatment. People make you feel like you gotta do a certain type of thing for the most bullshit. … It happens really every day.”
While sexual harassment is still prevalent, Cardi won’t tolerate it. “Oh hell no! I’ll put you on blast on my Instagram. I hope a ni**a would.”
Cardi’s episode of “Untold Stories of Hip Hop” airs Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on WE tv. Watch the clip below.
