CARDI B QUESTIONS REPUBLICANS’ SILENCE OVER DAUNTE WRIGHT SHOOTING & CARON NAZARIO VIDEO


Cardi B has never been one to hold her tongue — whether she’s rapping about her celebrity lifestyle or discussing American politics. Now, she’s challenging Republicans for being self-righteous, broadcasting their biased law and order agenda but remaining silent on social media when recorded incidents of police brutality attacking people of color become viral.

On Wednesday (April 14), the Grammy Award-winning rapper tweeted a one-minute video of herself questioning U.S. Congress members of the GOP with verified social media accounts on Twitter.

“Ya been real quit [sic],” she wrote in the video’s caption. “Twitter Blue check Republicans are a f*ckin joke. I don’t ever want to see yaa ranting on celebrities, athletes until yall address what’s REALLY WRONG IN AMERICA!”

Cardi B began the video by discussing the recently released police body cam footage from December 2020. U.S. Army Lt. Caron Nazario, 27, was pulled over in Windsor, Virginia, driving his brand new SUV, which had temporary license plates.

The video shows various officers brandishing their guns at the Army uniform-clad Nazario, who’s Latino and African-American, and ordering him to step out of his vehicle and get on the ground. While his hands are visibly up, Nazario asks why he’s being pulled over. One of the officers continually yells at him, and eventually, pepper sprays Nazario in the face before complying with the officer’s orders.

“This past week, we have seen an American lieutenant that served this country get treated like a f*cking dog by cops, got maced, got thrown to the floor,” Cardi added. “Mind you, this man served this country — over some fucking license plates, that these muthaf*ckas couldn’t see temporary license plates.”

The Windsor Police Department fired the officer who sprayed the irritant in Nazario’s face after the footage came out on social media earlier this month. Nazario has since filed a $1 million civil rights lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Norfolk, Virginia.

Cardi B continued her rant about the tragic death of 20-year-old Black motorist Daunte Wright. Former Minnesota police officer Kim Potter shot Wright after Brooklyn Center Police pulled him over for reportedly having air fresheners in his rear-view mirror. The 20-year law enforcement veteran declared she’d mistaken her gun for a taser before she fired the weapon.

“We have seen a young man get killed by a cop, unarmed, and the excuse was the cop that had been on duty for 20-plus years mistaked a gun for a taser,” Cardi said. “And my thing is,
