Addressing those who had tried to insult her, Cardi said:
I have to do this video because I’m seeing that y’all putting this edited Target picture of me looking like a mother f*cking square.
Yesterday, I posted a picture too spicy and that haters claimed that I was Photoshopping it, so now I gotta show y’all this mother f*cking body.
I know you b*tches ain’t talking when you shaped like seals and I know you ain’t talking ya’ll got sisters with bison backs and your mothers is shaped like walruses… I know you ain’t body shaming me!
I know I gained a little weight, I’m actually holding it in ‘cos I ate breakfast, lunch and I ate some ice cream.
Cardi concluded her vid with the boast, ‘It doesn’t matter though. A b*tch got lipo money. I got lipo money.’
Making herself crystal clear, Cardi later wrote the following message to those who thought they could body shame her:
Like y’all think I’m editing it, just ask me for a f*cking video. It’s simple. I got a little fat.
I gained a little weight, you know what I’m saying? It’s all good. Can ask me for a video, I’ll show ya.
Cardi has previously opened up about the issue of body confidence after giving birth, making the following remarks to last year:
I want to explain to people how hard it is to process. I feel like people look at girls on Instagram and go, ‘Oh, they got their lipo done and it was so easy’.
It is just such a long, hard process, almost like the same process as after you give birth to a baby and you see your body change and snapping it back.
Following her recent vid, Cardi received plenty of praise in the comment section, including from the rapper – and father of Cardi’s daughter, Kulture – Offset, who approvingly wrote, ‘Full meal.’
