Cardi B Says Police Officer Put Her in Choke Hold

Cardi B, who currently has the No. 2 song in the country with “Bodak Yellow,” is voicing her criticism of the New York Police Department.

On Tuesday (Sept. 19), the burgeoning hip-hop star described a recent encounter with an NYPD officer in a since-deleted tweet. “I can’t believe this cop put me on a choke hole just now,” she wrote. “shit is crazy these NY cops don’t know how to do they job FUCK 12.”

When a fan responded with “I bet the cops were white,” Bardi responded with “YEUP HE WAS.”

This isn’t the first time that the New York rapper has voiced her opinions regarding law enforcement. Last year, she tweeted about police officers, too. “Stop telling me to be safe,” she wrote. “Its not the people killin people is the cops.”

During this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, Bardi also praised former NFL star Colin Kaepernick, who protested police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem before football games. “Colin Kaepernick,” she said, “As long as you kneel with us, we’re gonna be standing for you.”

Cardi, who just released the Kodak Black-assisted remix to “Bodak Yellow,” deleted both tweets shortly after they were published.
