Cardi B hits back at a Twitter user who questions her bisexuality

Cardi B had the perfect response to a tweet about her bisexuality, which fans hailed as the “bisexual awareness week tweet we needed.”

The “WAP” rapper went viral after retweeting a Twitter user who apparently called out artists who identify as bisexual.

Along with a photo of Harry Styles, Lady Gaga, Billie Eilish and Cardi B, Twitter user @Thelightiscumin caught the hip hop star’s attention with his controversial caption.

“Celebrities who have come out as bisexual but have never dated someone of the same sex,” they captioned their post.

Cardi quickly clapped back saying she didn’t have to prove her sexuality to anyone.

“I collapsed before you were born…Sorry I don’t have any phone pics to prove it to you,” Cardi wrote.

She later also retweeted a fan who asked, “Didn’t you have a girlfriend in high school?” Cardi responded to this fan by saying, “Lmaaooo yes when I was a freshman.”

Fans were quick to defend Cardi and celebrated her response.

“Bisexuals don’t owe you insight into their sexual and romantic histories,” one fan wrote.

Author Lane Moore added, “The Bisexuality Awareness Week tweet we needed. Thank you thank you thank you 👑.”

Moore also responded to the original tweet explaining how bisexuality still holds true regardless of someone’s dating history.

“Biphobia always comes out more during Bisexuality Awareness Week 🙄 so here’s a reminder: you’re still bisexual even if you’ve never dated your same gender. You’re still bisexual even if you’re currently dating someone. one of the opposite sex. You never have to explain it to anyone 🏳️‍🌈,” Moore wrote.

Bisexuality is defined as attraction to more than one sex, whether physical, romantic, or emotional attraction, according to the Bisexual Resource Center.

This is just one of the sexualities under the Bi+ umbrella, which overlap and have nuanced differences, but which can generally mean attraction to someone regardless of gender.

Other Bi+ gender identities include pansexual, polysexual, and omnisexual.

Bisexuality Awareness Week, also known as #biweek, runs from September 16-23 and aims to raise awareness of bisexual rights and promote community understanding.

It was co-founded by the LGBTQ advocacy group GLAAD which conducted research on the negative experiences and erasure of bisexual people.

The research found that bisexual people face “disproportionately high rates of physical and mental illness, and are more likely to experience sexual and intimate partner violence than gay, lesbian, or non-LGBT people.”

Cardi, whose first name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, has been married to Migos rapper Offset since 2017.

They are parents to daughter Kulture, four, and son Wave, one.
