Cardi B defends Rita Ora’s ‘Girls’ amid criticism from the LGBTQ+ community
 Add to favorites

Last week, Rita Ora released her collaborative single ‘Girls‘, featuring Charli XCX, Bebe Rexha and Cardi B.

The song has faced a backlash from the LGBTQ+ community, with pop singer Hayley Kiyoko and R&B artist Kehlani criticising the track for being “downright tone-deaf.”

Kiyoko released a statement claiming that the song “does more harm than good for the LGBTQ+ community” while Kehlani hit out at its “harmful lyrics”.

Rita Ora apologised for the track yesterday (May 14), sharing a statement on her Twitter account.

“‘Girls’ was written to represent my truth and is an accurate account of a very real and honest experience in my life,” she wrote. “I have had romantic relationships with women and men throughout my life and this is my personal journey.

“I am sorry how I expressed myself in my song has hurt anyone,” she continued. “I would never intentionally cause harm to other LGBTQ+ people or anyone. Looking forward, I hope that continuing to express myself through my art will empower my fans to feel as proud of themselves as I’m learning to feel about who I am.”

Cardi B has now come to the defense of the song, writing on Twitter, “Listen to “GIRLS” by Rita Ora ft me @BebeRexha @charli_xcx .We never try to cause harm or had bad intentions with the song .I personally myself had experiences with other woman ,shiieeett with a lot of woman ! I though the song was a good song and i remember my experience .”

She later added, “I know i have use words before that i wasn’t aware that they are offensive to the LGBT community .I apologize for that .Not everybody knows the correct “terms “to use.I learned and i stopped using it.”

A fan replied saying how they had used offensive language in the past but soon learnt the error of their ways. “Exactly me too .My own friends be like “ I’m a dyke so i never thought it was a offensive word .I was like wtf,” Cardi B replied. You can see her tweets below.
