Cardi B Laments That #MeToo Movement Isn't Having An Effect On Hip-Hop Industry

'A lot of video vixens have spoken out... and nobody gives a f***.'

Cardi B has shared her thoughts on the #MeToo movement, admitting she doesn’t see the wave of people speaking out about sexual harassment to have an effect on the world of hip-hop music.

The ‘Bodak Yellow’ rapper told Cosmopolitan that while she was “glad” that more victims of sexual misconduct felt comfortable sharing their stories and calling out their abusers, she was less convinced that she will see a subsequent change in the industry she comes from.

Cardi also commented on the men who have spoken out in support of #MeToo, noting: “These producers and directors… they’re not woke, they’re scared.”

In the same interview, Cardi discussed her past career as a stripper, adding: “Just because somebody was a stripper don’t mean they don’t have no brain.
