Lady Gaga has come to the defence of Cardi B who has been receiving heavy backlash after she emerged the first woman to win Best Rap Album at the 2019 Grammy Awards.
Social media users have trolled the rapper for winning an undeserving award and that it was an insult to black women for a Latina to win such an award in Black History month.
However, Lady Gaga is of a different assertion as she showered love on Cardi B in celebration of the award.
“It is so hard to be a woman in this industry. What it takes, how hard we work through the disrespectful challenges, just to make art,” she tweeted.
“I love you Cardi. You deserve your awards. Let’s celebrate her fight.
“Lift her up & honor her. She is brave.”
Her tweet comes shortly after Cardi B deactivated her Instagram account due to the huge criticism she received.
