Cardi B has denied posting a transphobic meme on her official Facebook page.
The meme shows a man walking through a door and uses a transphobic slur. Although it was posted on Cardi B’s Facebook, she says she wasn’t responsible.

“It’s come to my attention that there have been offensive posts made on what used to be my Facebook page. For the past year and a half a FORMER team member has been the only one with access to the account,” Cardi B tweeted.

Cardi B has been criticized in the past for using the same transphobic slur. The rapper apologized for using the word saying she “did not know that that was a bad word ‘cause trans people use it.”
She also defended her husband Offset for rapping lyrics some people took as homophobic.
“I do not vibe with queers, I got the heart of a bear, I bust ’em down by the pair,” Offset raps on “Boss Life.”
Offset claimed he did not write the line about gay people. Cardi B supported Offset by saying “I’m not gonna let somebody call him homophobic when I know that he’s not. I’m saying this because I see him around gays, and he treats them with the same respect he treats everybody. He never acts uncomfortable, and he just don’t care.”
