Cardi B Sparks Controversy with Remarks on Origins of Homosexuality: ‘Not Everybody Born Gay

Despite identifying as bis3xual and being quite vocal of her support of the LGBT+ community over the years, Cardi B has still garnered her fair share of side eyes and headlines for ruffling their feathers.

From defending homophobic lyrics by her on-and-off-again beau Offset to being accused of transphobia herself, Cardi’s used her platform to sound off against critics who have questioned her allyship.

Such was the case recently when the GRAMMY winner took to Instagram to give her thoughts on the wildly popular Netflix series ‘Baby Reindeer.’

Her commentary on the show may have rubbed some the wrong way, however, after she analyzed the “root” of some people’s s3xual orientation.

Cardi took to IG live to reveal she found the content disturbing.

“I watched this show ‘Baby Reindeer’ on Netflix and I haven’t been able to finish watching it because around the fourth or fifth episode it kind of traumatized me a little bit and it freaked me out,” she said.

The commentary undoubtedly left some scratching heads, but Cardi continued.

Despite seemingly being well-intentioned, the Rap diva’s choice of words definitely left some of her live session viewers feeling a way.

As of time reported, she’s not directly addressed some of their critical responses.

Cardi B’s past controversies

This is not the first time Cardi B has found herself mired in controversy for her comments.

Since 2017 the singer, whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, has been married to American rapper Offset with whom she has two children. In 2018 Cardi B came out as bis3xual, sharing that she has had relationships with “a lot” of women. However, as with her Baby Reindeer comments, some of her controversies have stemmed from comments made about the LGBTQ+ community.

Allegations that Cardi B had shared an anti-trans meme on Facebook were denied by the rapper. She tweeted: “For the past year and a half a FORMER team member has been the only one with access to the account.”

Transphobic allegations occurred again in 2019 but she hit back at the transphobic claims and stated she supports all LGBTQ+ people because her sister is gay. She also noted that there are two trans people in her “glam team”.

In 2022, Cardi slammed a biphobic tweet stating that she was a celebrity who “came out as bis3xual but never dated someone of the same gender.”

In a now iconic statement, the rapper tweeted: “I ate bitches out before you was born …..Sorry I don’t have razr phone pics to prove it to you.” She added that she had a girlfriend when she was a freshman in high school.

In the same year, she called out homophobes in her classic outspoken fashion.

She wrote: “Every bad b***h have a gay best friend or gay best friend cousin ……If you homophobic you just ugly(sic).”

Baby Reindeer is now streaming on Netflix.
