The fast door-opening scene of the 23-year-old mogul has made many outraged with a less-than-clear reason. Nina Youtube, the organizer of the petition, said without elaborating,

“The video was perfect until we saw K and I wanted to throw my phone.”

Since it was released on Friday, the steamy, pastel-hued, and sexually suggestive video has garnered over 80 million views on Youtube. WAP also sees the cameo of multiple budding hip-hop artists such as Normani, Rosalía, Sukihana, Rubi Rose, Mulatto.

However, netizens only contented in the placement for Jenner.

In the series of tweets that have now been deleted, Cardi B said that the appearance of the Kardashian family member was for her treatment to Hennessy and Kulture, the rapper’s sister and daughter respectively, at the birthday bash of Stormi previously this year.

The Grammy winner also added that Offset, her husband, is close to Kylie Jenner’s husband Travis Scott as well as Kris Jenner’s long-term boyfriend Corey Gamble. She noted that Kris often gives her “advice on certain things.”

The producer/writer of Essence magazine Danielle Young lashed out at Cardi B for her casting choice, saying that Normani had to do all these things and Kylie Jenner only walked down the hall an opened a door.

 “If that’s not a perfect visual indication of Black women having to do the most and white women do the bare minimum to get somewhere, I don’t know what is.”

Replying to the tweet, the Money rapper explained further about Normani’s dancing part in the music video as fans felt that her dancer role should have been longer.

“Normani is one of the best female artists that dances her [butt] off!”

“Why would she open a door? Please tell me how that would make sense? The best part of the song is the beat & hook it what makes you want to shake your [butt].”

Through these years of their fame, a lot of members in the Kardashian clan, who are closely related to Black people, have been scrutinized for cultural appropriation.

Cardi B, whose real name is Belcallis Almanzar, maintained that not everything is about race.

She added in another tweet that she wants to say thank you to all women who were part of her music video.

 “The fact that you made time in your schedules means a lot to me! It was so important to me to include different women, that are different races and come from different backgrounds but are so powerful and influential.”
