CONSERVATIVE commentator Candace Owens has lashed out at Cardi B, claiming she "broke" the rapper after branding her 'illiterate' and 'an embarrassment' to black people.
The war of words played out over social media on Sunday after Owens, 31, shared a clip slamming Democratic nominee Joe Biden for taking part in an interview with the Grammy-winning rapper.
In the clip from The Ben Shapiro Show, Owens rages it was "one of the biggest insults" to black voters that Biden opted to do the interview with an "illiterate rapper", rather than someone who could ask the "tough questions".
"Her [Cardi B] music and platform contributes to the disintegration of black culture and values," Owens wrote alongside the video of her and Shapiro.
Owens continued to claim that Biden thinks "black people are stupid" and likened his interview with Cardi B to Donald Trump being interviewed by Justin Bieber.
In another tweet, the Republican made another dig at the rapper, saying: "Never listen to a millionaire that made it here in America, but trashes our country.
"These Hollywood idols are frauds, leading sheep down paths they never took when they discovered success."
Cardi, 27, real name Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, hit back in an Instagram video in which she said Biden interviewed her because of her number one song and wide-ranging influence.
"It's not a secret I use my platform to encourage people to vote," Cardi, who previously endorsed Bernie Sanders said during the video.
"I have millions of followers. I pay millions in taxes. I have the Number One song in this country, I have the Number One song in the United Kingdom, I have the Number One song in Australia, I have the Number One song in New Zealand.
"Just like I can make millions of people pop their p****y," she said of her hit-single WAP, "I can make millions of people go out and vote."
Cardi condemned Owens for being a ‘cheerleader’ for Trump, and slammed her for "getting pimped out by white men".
Owens accused Cardi of encouraging million to "go vote for the man that locked up entire generations of black men".
She added: "Joe Biden used you. Bernie Sanders used you. Neither one of them like or know your music. They think you’re dumb."
The rapper responded by insisting that Owens is "encouraging millions to vote for a man who laugh Everytime a black men [sic] gets killed by a cop and tell millions of Americans to drink bleach".
"I don’t know what Black man broke your heart … that you hate your kind so much," Cardi added. "I honestly just feel sorry for you".
Owens responded that Cardi is "hurting black America".
"You continually keep saying you have a Number One song—it means s**t," Owens said.
"Nobody cares about a song about your 'Wet A** P*'. That has nothing to do with Black America, and whether you're helping or hurting. Right now, you're hurting Black America."
"Did you know your party has supported the slaughter of over 18 million black babies since 1973?" Cardi asked.
"Did you know the most unsafe place for a black child is in its mother’s womb because of YOUR party?" she continued.
The tit-for-tat has gone back-and-forth over Twitter and Instagram with both rowing over their contrasting political views.
The singer, whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, has often conducted interviews with high-profile politicians.
In April, Bernie Sanders joined the WAP crooner for an Instagram Live chat in which he called for Biden to become a “more progressive candidate.”
“Uncle Bernie! Big Booty got uncle Bernie in my life!” Cardi shouted in the April video.
During her in-depth chat with Joe Biden last month, the rapper questioned the Presidential hopeful on policy issues such as the COVID-19 pandemic, police brutality, college affordability, and healthcare.
"I have a whole list of things that I want our next president to do for us … But first, I just want Trump out," she said.
