Cardi B forced to defend 'Twerk' video after accusations that it disrespects women

Headlines 24/01/2019

Earlier this week, Cardi B threatened to "dog walk" Fox News pundit Tomi Lahren after she mocked her political views online - now she's taken on a second conservative TV personality in classic Cardi fashion. 

Fox News host Stephanie Hamill criticised Cardi's latest music video, 'Twerk', claiming the visuals of scantily clad women dancing was an affront to the #MeToo movement.

"In the era of #meToo how exactly does this empower women?" she tweeted.

"Leftists, @iamcardib, feel free to chime in. THX."

The video has already caused a stir online, having been viewed over 23 million times. It features a variety of women in bikinis who were selected from an international search for the best twerkers.

"It says to women that I can wear and not wear whatever I want," Cardi B replied.

"Do [whatever] I want and that NO still means NO.

"So Stephanie chime in...If I twerk and be half naked does that mean I deserve to get raped and molested? I want to know what a conservative woman like you thinks."

"I agree, no means NO, NO MATTER what!" Hamill responded.

"But this video and others like it sexually objectify women. I think this hurts all women and the cause.

"We're not sex OBJECTS! Clearly we see things differently (maybe I'm just a hater because I can't twerk)."
