Cardi B recently opened up about the abuse she said she endured at a magazine shoot.
During an appearance on WeTV’s “Untold Stories of Hip Hop,” hosted by Angie Martinez, the rapper described being harassed by a photographer. She said he approached her before exposing himself.
“I will never forget how I went to shoot for this magazine and the photographer, he was trying to get close to me like, ‘Yeah, you want to get in this magazine?’ Then he pulled his (expletive) out,” Cardi B said.
The star said she became enraged and told the owner of the magazine, who took no disciplinary action against the photographer.
“He just looked at me like, ‘So? And?’”she said.
Although she didn’t specify when the incident occurred, she said she no longer finds herself in those types of situations. But she said she wanted to speak out about her experience to help others, especially those who are not celebrities.
“When I see the Me Too movement — there’s girls from the hood I know that went through the same type of treatment, like they make you feel like you got to do a certain type of thing for the most (expletive).” she said. “It happens, really, every day.”
