Last Friday (7 August), Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion released their collaborative single "WAP", which featured appearances from Rosalía, Normani, Kylie Jenner, Sukihana, Mulatto and Rubi Rose.

Fans were pretty confused about Jenner's appearance in the video, and yesterday (9 August) Cardi B explained in various now-deleted tweets why Jenner was in the video.

One Twitter user praised Normani's dancing cameo, but criticised Jenner's cameo, writing that it's a "visual indication of Black women having to do the most and white women having to do the bare minimum to get somewhere."

Cardi B responded in a now-deleted tweet, "Normani is one of the best female artists that dances like she dances her fuckin' ass off! Why would she open a door? Please tell me how that would make sense? The best part of the song is the beat & hook, it's what makes you want to shake your ass."

In another deleted tweet, Cardi B added that it's "not about fuckin race", and explained the reasoning behind Jenner's appearance in another tweet, "She treated my sister and daughter so lovely at her kid's bday party. Travis and Set [Offset] are real close and Kris Jenner [has been] giving me advice on certain things I ask for and her husband real cool with mine."

A petition was launched last Friday (7 August) to remove Kylie Jenner from the "WAP" video. At the time of writing this article, the petition has gained over 64,000 signatures.

Cardi B's new "WAP" single featuring Megan Thee Stallion is out now.
