Cardi B’s messy feud with the Shade Room fully explained

Cardi B has been at odds with online blog The Shade Room for a number of years, and things have recently escalated for the entire internet to see. After the Shade Room reposted a photo of Kulture, Cardi B and Offset’s daughter, on July 10, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper accused the outlet of only posting negative content about her on its page. She claimed they blocked her from commenting on her Instagram profile after requesting that Kulture’s photo be removed.

In a since-deleted tweet, Cardi B wrote, per Rolling Stone, “Delete my child from your page. Because my thing is… okay you only post negative content about me, cool, no problem. Blocked me from commenting on their site ok cool. But please don’t post my kid on her funny stuff…I don’t want to get old but just leave me alone.”

The Shade Room’s Twitter account denied blocking her comments, claiming the rapper previously asked why the outlet never posted anything about her family during a private phone call. The outlet claimed they had to get permission to post other people’s content on their page, but Cardi declined to give them the green light for Kulture’s photo. In a series of deleted tweets and videos, Cardi claimed that the outlet only speaks ill of her, but that they don’t do the same to other artists. The Shade Room then responded with positive coverage they previously posted about the rapper, but the drama didn’t end there.

In a deleted tweet, The Shade Room wrote: “Just spoke to @iamcardib and we were able to come to a resolution. We’ll fix the problem and move on. Cardi, we wish you all the best and continued success. Glad We found a way to move forward peacefully. What happened before was bad, but how it ended is good.” The outlet then apologized to its supporters for all the drama and vowed not to engage in anything like this again.
