Baring it all out during an upcoming episode of Untold Stories of Hip Hop with Angie Martinez, Cardi B opened up about a shocking sexual assault she experienced on the set of a magazine photoshoot earlier in her career.
The Bronx-born rapper got candid about the abuse and revealed the time a photographer exposed himself to her during a photoshoot.
I will never forget how I went to shoot for this magazine and the photographer, he was trying to get close to me like, ‘Yeah, you want to get in this magazine?’ Then he pulled his d–k out.
I was so f–king mad, and I was just like, ‘This is crazy‘.
Cardi B further stated that when she told the magazine owner about the sexual assault, she claims she was met with a nonchalant response, which only confirmed her decision to walk off the set of the shoot.
In her words;
You know what’s so crazy? I told the magazine owner and he just looked at me like, ‘So? And?’
Cardi B went on to compare her experience to the #MeToo movement, which went viral in October 2017 after a string of sexual abuse allegations were made against film producer Harvey Weinstein. The movement was started by activist Tarana Burke on MySpace in 2006.
When asked by Martinez if she still faces similar experiences today, Cardi responded;
Oh, hell no. I’ll put you on blast on my Instagram… I’ll f–king violate.
Cardi’s Untold Stories of Hip Hop episode comes a little over a year after Weinstein, 67, pleaded not guilty to charges of felony rape and criminal sex acts in June 2018. The producer was accused of decades of sexual harassment and assault in exposés published by The New York Times and The New Yorker in October 2017.
Since the reports, dozens of women, including actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Rose McGowan, have come forward with additional allegations of misconduct.
