Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B's hilarious reaction to a woman crying in anguish over “WAP”

In August 2020, Cardi B broke the internet with her song "WAP" featuring Megan Thee Stallion. Since then, it's been at the center of culture commentary and the world of music.

The video, which is explicit, has upset hundreds of conservative Americans on the internet, including Candace Owens, who had a heated exchange with Cardi on Twitter this week stemming from the performance among accusations of cheating spouses and doctored tweets. Owens even threatened to sue Cardi for defamation.


Following the televised debut of "WAP" at the 63rd Annual Grammys on Sunday night, many of the same people that expressed outrage about the song lyrics and video also complained about the sexuality within Cardi and Megan's performance.

Both musicians have been accused of "ruining American society" and "glorifying prostitution" due to the raunchy choreography.

I personally think it's for shock value and entertainment purposes, not an agenda to "ruin American society." Many things could be the cause for "ruined American society," such as racism and the political and social climate we're still trying to pick the pieces up from under a former administration.

But I digress.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B's Grammys performance wasn't trashy. It was an empowering ode to female sexuality conversations.indy100.com

With an extensive amount of posts and videos being made about whop even after the initial release, Cardi B has been taking the time to enjoy herself as she enters the heated debates with people who want her to be de-platformed for the performance.

One video, in particular, that was highlighted was of a woman crying during a reaction to the performance. Both Cardi and Megan didn't shy away from calling out a YouTuber for seemingly overreacting to the content.

"Really? Over WAP?" asked Cardi in her Instagram caption. The video shows a woman seemingly anguished over the Grammys performance, speaking to the point that the content is inappropriate for children to watch.

"She keep wiping her eyes and it ain't even though damn tears," Megan said in the comments.

When I was a young man playing rugby, I was in an environment where I felt (rightly or wrongly) that it was only socially acceptable to be straight, so I pretended! It may not have been particularly healthy for my personal wellbeing, but it didn't take long to learn what to say and how to behave in order to convince those around me. And it worked pretty well! So much so that when one of my teammates later met my boyfriend at a wedding, he famously said to the bride and groom that I "couldn't possibly be gay because he played rugby with me for years!"

So why is this little anecdote so relevant to COP 26? Well… because if a shy, introverted gay boy can pull off being straight, then it is not exactly hard for politicians with their armies of speech writers, advisers and spin doctors to pretend to be green. And that is what many of them are doing!

Being a parent can be rough.

This week alone, I've faced homework deadlines, a sickness bug, multiple tantrums, a nasty smash on the head (their head, not mine). I've been yelled at for breaking character when I was supposed to be Wolverine, and I've read The Gruffalo about a thousand times (feels like).
