Conservative activist and Donald Trump supporter Candace Owens escalated her feud with Cardi B this week, posting a series of tweets and making an appearance on Fox News, denigrating the rapper. The "WAP" star had gone on Instagram live on Sunday night explaining to her followers why she won't stop speaking out against Trump and encouraging fans to vote in the Nov. 3 presidential election.
The rapper's comments came following a social media throwdown with Owens, who taunted Cardi about her recent interview with Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, who Owens suggested -- along with Sen. Bernie Sanders -- had "used" Cardi and didn't actually like her music. Cardi had a series of snappy responses, and on Tuesday (Sept. 8), the feud hit a new peak.
Owens told the Fox's Tucker Carlson in a live segment Tuesday that the rapper "could not obviously argue with me from an intellectual standpoint." The Blackout author -- who also posted a few clips to of the segment to her Instagram Stories -- called the artist's interview with Biden "pure puppetry," and claimed Cardi "is barely literate" and "knows virtually nothing about politics." The conservative commentator later added, "She ended up deleting her nine posts to me because even her fans were telling her, 'Tap out.'"
