Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-Wis.), who declared Cardi B’s Grammy Awards performance of “WAP” with Megan Thee Stallion was “inconsistent with basic decency,” received a sharp rebuke from the “Bodak Yellow” rapper herself.
Cardi B hit back on Twitter Thursday, slamming Grothman for failing to focus on more important issues, such as police brutality.
“They giving seats to FUCKIN IDIOTS!!!” she added.
Grothman claimed on the House floor earlier on Thursday that he’d received complaints about last month’s televised Grammys performance, saying “millions of Americans” would see it as “inconsistent with basic decency.”
“Wake up FCC and begin to do your job,” demanded Grothman of the Federal Communications Commission. “The moral decline of America is partly due to your utter complacency.”
On Twitter, Cardi B referenced this week’s conviction of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd.
“I think we all been on the edge this week since we seen police brutality back to back including watching one of the biggest case in history go down DUE to police brutality,” she wrote.
“But wait! This is wat state representative decide to talk about.”
In a second tweet, Cardi B said “this is why people gotta vote, elect better people cause you got these dum asses representing states.”
A spokesperson for the lawmaker failed to return The Associated Press’ request for comment.
