After Much Backlash, Cardi B Explains Why She Has Kylie Jenner in Her and Megan Thee Stallion’s New Music Video
Cardi B and Megan The Stallion fans are still upset that the rappers’ new music video features Kylie Jenner. Despite the visual breaking the internet, Jenner’s inclusion has been causing havoc. Fans are demanding answers and Cardi just gave her reasoning.

Days before the video release, Stallion teased that a collaboration between the two was on the way.
“WAP @iamcardib and The Hot Girl Coach this Friday,” Stallion captioned a proportional photo of the single to her 13.4 million Instagram followers. Cardi also posted the promo.
The visual features both women rapping raunchy lyrics, completely owning their sexuality. Several popular influencers make cameos, including former Fifth Harmony member Normani, rapper Mulatto, and Sukihana. Jenner’s inclusion isn’t appreciated by many fans.
Dressed in a skin-clad, leopard print leotard and matching heels, Jenner’s cameo involves her walking down a long hallway and opening the door to Normani busting a move. Many are questioning why Jenner was chosen when all other cameos are by performers.
An online petition calling for the removal of Jenner is still collecting signatures.

Cardi initially took the high road in her response to the backlash, sending out a Tweet her to fan base giving her appreciation to all who appear in the video.
“I wanna say thank you to every woman that was apart of my 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,” she writes.
But the questions didn’t stop and apparently, Cardi is sick of it. In a series of Tweets captured by Hollywood Unlocked, Cardi gives her reasoning for including Jenner and it has more to do with familial ties than Jenner’s generational influence.
“She treated my sister and daughter so lovely at her kid [sic] birthday party. Travis and Set are real close and Kris Jenner have given me advice on certain things I ask for and her husband real cool with mine,” Cardi says.
Cardi also responded to criticism of having Jenner open the door to a shot of Normani dancing in a sultry fashion.
“Normani is one of the best female artist that dances [sic] Like she dances her f***in a** 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 [sic] it what makes you want to shake your a**,” Cardi alleges
“WAP” currently has over 55 million views on YouTube.
