Cardi B Responds to Trolls About Prison After Pleading Not Guilty for Alleged Involvement in a Strip Club Brawl
As the day for Cardi B to head to Queens Criminal Court on October 25 approaches closer, the discussion surrounding her alleged involvement in a strip club brawl back in 2018 has surfaced once again.
The rapper responded to a tweet that read “You’re going to prison” saying she was going to break more records and make more music before going behind bars.
Cardi B is scheduled for a hearing for allegedly orchestrating an attack on the Wattley sisters, who were bartending at a strip club in Flushing, Queens. She had pleaded not guilty back in 2019.
The ‘Bodak Yellow’ hitmaker is accused of throwing glass bottles and drinks at the Wattley sisters, alongside two of her associates during the brawl. One sister also made allegations that her head had been slammed into the bar during the melee.
According to Yahoo Life, court documents state that Cardi B planned the attack with her two friends, Tawana Jackson-Morel and Jeffrey Bush, over social media where the three coordinated a date, time, and location to assault the bartending sisters.
It’s believed the assault had been planned to get back at one of the sisters whom she believed slept with her husband, Offset, at the time. After the altercation, Cardi B was indicted on 12 counts, including two counts of felony for attempted assault and a charge for reckless endangerment.
The rapper and her friends face up to four years in prison if they are found guilty.
Twitter Exchange Between Cardi B And Baddie Gi
Earlier this year, Cardi B had taken to Twitter to express her frustration with the case.
Baddie Gi, one of the two sisters who were allegedly assaulted by Cardi B and her friends, shot back at the rapper writing, “It’s the audacity for me ðÂ²˜ðÂ²˜”
Cardi B has been dealing with a lot of haters and trolls because of the case. However, it isn’t her first time dealing with hate online and she had even come in to defend her collaborator, Lizzo, just a few months back.
