“Young black girls are having their minds poisoned by what you are trying to package and sell,” conservative commentator and BLEXIT leader Candace Owens replied to Rapper Cardi B. on Tuesday.
“Yaaaayyyyyyy WE MADE FOX NEWS GUYS !!! Wap wap wap,” Cardi B. wrote Tuesday, retweeting video of Owens telling Fox News that the rapper’s sexually-charged performance of her song “WAP” at Sunday’s Grammys is contributing to the corrosion of American society. (“WAP” is a vulgar, sexual acronym.)
“You are a cancer cell to culture” portraying a false image of “empowerment,” Owens replied to the rapper’s post:
“Just @ me next time, directly.
“You are a cancer cell to culture. Young black girls are having their minds poisoned by what you are trying to package and sell to them as “empowerment”. I’m one of the few that has courage to tell you the truth.
“You should thank me.”

Owens later replied to a now-deleted follow-up tweet by Cardi B., telling the singer she should use her influence as a celebrity to “empower young women to aspire to something more than taking off their clothes:
“The reason my comments always get you into your feelings is because deep down, you know what I am saying is true.
“You are in a position to empower young women to aspire to something more than taking off their clothes but you don’t feel you can be more.”
During her Fox News interview, Owens said that “Parents should be terrified” that their kids are being taught to emulate Cardi B.:
“You have these kids learning about Critical Race Theory. They’re learning that they should aspire to be people like Cardi B. You see that, fundamentally, we are seeing the destruction of American values, American principles.
“And, it’s terrifying. I think parents should be terrified that this is the direction that our society is headed towards. And, again, we are weakening America. That’s really what we should be talking about.”
Owens’ BLEXIT movement seeks to introduce conservative values to urban communities.
