Rapper Cardi B was a bit upset Thursday morning (April 22) when she got wind that a U.S. Representative from Wisconsin had her name in his mouth while on the floor of the House.
Republican Rep. Glenn Grothman was speaking about what he believes “affects the moral norms of the nation,” specifically Cardi B’s half of the “WAP” performance at the Grammys last month.
Grothman says he has been receiving complaints in his office “about Cardi B and the Grammys.” He then blamed the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for allowing the performance to air on national TV and brought up Vice President Kamala Harris because she “used her fame to promote” Cardi B.
“I assure the FCC that millions of Americans would view [Cardi’s] performance as inconsistent with basic decency,” Grothman said. “Wake up, FCC, and begin to do your job. The moral decline of America is partly due to your utter complacency.”
Cardi responded on Twitter wondering why her Grammy performance was still something legislators wanted to discuss, especially since the George Floyd murder trial just ended earlier this week.
“This gets me so mad ya don’t even know!” she wrote. “I think we all been on the edge this week since we seen police brutality back to back including watching one of the biggest case in history go down DUE to police brutality but wait! This is wat state representative decide to talk about.”
By the way, however you feel about the Grammys performance or the song “WAP” itself, some people would like to know why Cardi is the only one that is always brought up.
