Cardi B is facing legal repercussions after she defamed a group of Trump supporters in Long Island calling them “racists” in multiple social media posts she sneakily edited for her 14.4 million followers. The rapper’s sister, Hennessy Carolina, and her partner were involved in a fierce argument with a group, one of which was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.
According to reports from Page Six:
In social media posts after the beef, Cardi wrote that Carolina and Diaz were harassed over where they parked their car, “all because they are a Afro/Hispanic gay couple.”
But in the suit, which also names Carolina and Diaz as defendants, the beachgoers allege the two women harassed them — and then defamed them by posting edited video and commentary about the altercation on social media, ABC 7 New York reported.
“These peaceful Suffolk County residents were quietly enjoying a Sunday at the Smith Point beach with their families, when rap celebrity Hennessy Carolina suddenly approached them, raging, spitting, insulting, assaulting, defaming and threatening them, all the while videotaping them because one of them wore a MAGA hat,” the plaintiffs’ attorney, John Ray, told the news outlet.
“Then Hennessy, Cardi B and celebrity model Michelle Diaz deviously edited the videotape and published the edited version all over social media, across the world for all to see, and maliciously falsely labeled these residents and their families as ‘N…s’ and as racists,” Ray said.
