Cardi B accuses Shadow Room of ‘gassing’ her in heated online feud

Cardi B has found herself at the center of an online battle with gossip site The Shade Room.

The digital feud was sparked when the site reposted a video of Cardi and Offset’s daughter, Kulture.

The outlet caught the video of Kulture holding a stack of cash after her dad originally posted the clips to his own Instagram Stories to celebrate the child’s fourth birthday this weekend, according to Newsweek.

Although the majority of the convoluted exchange was mostly deleted, many fans watched the battle unfold in real time as Cardi ripped through the outlet online.

Cardi, who was performing in the UK at the Wireless Festival before the dispute broke out, asked the outlet in her comments section to remove the post.

In several of the now-deleted tweets, Cardi accused The Shade Room of only posting negative stories about her and blocking her from commenting on her posts and sending direct messages.

The outspoken rapper shared on Twitter what appeared to be her pent up feelings about the outlet’s past posts.

“Because my thing is… okay, you only post negative stuff about me, cool no problem. blocked me from commenting on their ok cool page,” Cardi said in a since-deleted tweet. “But please don’t post my child on y’all, it’s funny…I don’t wanna be myself, but leave me alone.”

After claiming that the outlet “will only post negative content” about it, TSR reportedly responded by pointing to previous posts that it said were examples of positive coverage.

“So now you want to gaslight me,” Cardi said in a follow-up video, seen below. “And if you’re not doing some sleazy bullshit on purpose, why stop me from commenting? And then you post some things – some things – positive about me so you can all constantly post negative things about me that you don’t do to other artists.

“What’s the phone number of the lawyer you used in your defamation case because we’re trying to figure something out,” the site replied, referencing Cardi’s recent $4 million court ruling. against blogger Tasha K. “Is this the ‘only negative content’ you refer to?”

Cardi revealed that she tried to comment on the post on Kulture asking TSR to remove the video after witnessing hostile comments from fans about her daughter.

When she went to ask for the video to be removed, she claimed it was banned and accused TSR of blocking her from commenting on her posts.

“I DMed you but, of course, you’re ignoring me, and that’s why I had to say it publicly,” she said. “Obviously you blocked me from commenting on your page. That’s why when I comment, no one can see my comment and I actually have screenshots of it, and that’s why I I posted. So now you want to gaslight me. And if you’re not doing some sleazy stuff on purpose, why stop me from commenting? Then you post some positive things about me so you can all post some negative things all the time me that you don’t do to other artists.

After calling out the site again, Cardi posted an emotional message asking TSR to “calm down” with her.

“I am a person and I have feelings. I’m not crazy, I’m not that ghetto person, I’m not that person trying to make stories about me,” she said. “You clearly know what you are doing; If you weren’t, you wouldn’t have muted me. But my thing is to take it easy with me. I am also a person and I try to protect my mental health as best I can. It’s too much. We could have had this conversation on DM, but clearly you’re ignoring me, so now we have to, I guess, do it like this.

The Shade Room also reportedly denied restricting Cardi’s Instagram comments while claiming she recently asked them to post information about her family in a phone call.

After public back and forth, both parties agreed to take their conversation offline.

“You know what, let’s handle this like adults”, Cardi tweeted Sunday night, suggesting a phone call to resolve their issues, which TSR obliged.

Cardi and The Shade Room both deleted all tweets from the public dispute.

The outlet tweeted on Monday that the two parties reconciled after a conversation with the artist.

“Just spoke to @iamcardib and we were able to find a solution,” TSR told followers on its official Twitter account. “We put the issue to rest and move on. Cardi, we wish you the best and continued success. Happy to have found a way to move forward serenely. What happened earlier was bad, but the way it ended is good.

HuffPost has contacted TSR for further comment.
