A DISGUSTED Candace Owens has blasted Cardi B for “poisoning minds” with her raunchy Grammys WAP performance, while blasting the star as a “cancer cell to culture”.
But the rapper hit back, boasting “I’m going to thank Candy. She put my performance on Fox News that boosted the views on YouTube and is counting towards my streams and sales.”
The war of words erupted on Twitter after an outraged Tucker Carlson slammed the Grammys on Monday over Cardi B's and Megan Thee Stallion's live performance of WAP – describing the raunchy display as "pornography".
He spoke about the saucy show with Owens, who said WAP being performed at the Grammy's signified the "corrosion" and "end of an empire".
The conservative pundit later tweeted Cardi B to emphasis her disgust: "You are a cancer cell to culture.
"Young black girls are having their minds poisoned by what you are trying to package and sell to them as 'empowerment'.
"I’m one of the few that has courage to tell you the truth. You should thank me."
But Cardi B just bit back, tweeting: "Yaaaayyyyyyy We made Fox News guys !!! Wap wap wap."
Owens also told the rapper on Twitter: "The reason my comments always get you into your feelings is because deep down, you know what I am saying is true.
"You are in a position to empower young women to aspire to something more than taking off their clothes but you don’t feel you can be more."
But Cardi B replied: "Matter fact I’m just going to thank Candy.
"She put my performance on Fox News giving it more views that boosted the views on YouTube and is counting towards my streams and sales.
"Stream up and Wap. Remember grown parents only you can monitor what your kids watch, no1 else."
On Fox News, an appalled Tucker had told viewers, "it's hard not to conclude they’re not intentionally trying to degrade our culture and hurt our children", as he slammed the Grammys host-network CBS for showing the hyper-sexualized performance.
Carlson spent the segment in a tirade against cultural items that were deemed controversial.
"The cultural vandals in charge of our own cultural revolution have censored everything from cartoon skunks to Peter Pan and Dumbo," the host said.
"All filth!" Carlson said. Among the "cultural losses" he lamented include Mr. Potato Head and Dr. Seuss.
As he introduced a segment of the Grammys showing a dance performance between WAP singers Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, Carlson joked it was "the only portion" of the event the network could show.
"No more Dumbo, it's too filthy," Carlson retorted sarcastically. "We get that instead."
Carlson's remarks were in introduction to Owens, who similarly decried the loss of Dr. Seuss ("gone"), Mr. Potato Head ("problematic, not enough genders available"), among others.
"We've seen going to the supermarket as a traumatizing experience," Owens continued.
"We've lost Aunt Jemima last year, we've lost Land O'Lakes butter last year. We've lost Uncle Ben and his rice last year because everything is so traumatizing for children to look at."
As she spoke, a video of the WAP performance appeared before her and Carlson, showing again the two singers on a bed.
"Virtually, what we were looking at last night was a lesbian sex scene being simulated on television, and this is considered feminist," she said of the performance.
"This feels more sinister. This is starting to me to seem like it’s not even left or right, it’s not a political issue," Owens added.
"This seems like an attack on American values, American traditions, and you’re actually actively trying to make children aspire to things that are grotesque," she ended.
"We are celebrating perversity in America."
Before agreeing and saying WAP was "totally degrading," Carlson added another dig at the singers.
"They are trying to degrade us," he ended, before adding this "culture" was "keeping women down in society."
Meanwhile, teen Mom Farrah Abraham was slammed as a ‘hypocrite’ for accusing Cardi B of ‘glamorizing prostitution’ despite a past sex tape.
