Author and political commentator Candace Owens threatened to sue rapper Cardi B after a Twitter argument between the two public figures escalated on Tuesday.
While speaking on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Monday, Owens reacted to Cardi B’s Grammy performance. “We are seeing the destruction of American values and principals,” Owens said about the performance. “I think parents should be terrified.”
“This is not the patriarchy that’s keeping young women down. It’s displays like this, displays of blatant nudity and sexualization, that is keeping women down in this society,” Owens said.
Cardi B faced criticism over her provocative Grammy performance with some viewers saying the performance was “not family-friendly” enough to be aired on television.
Initially, Cardi B shared Owen’s Fox News segment to her Twitter account, writing “Yaaaayyyyyyy WE MADE FOX NEWS GUYS !!! Wap wap wap”
A heated Twitter argument later broke out between Owens and Cardi B following Owen’s Fox News segment.
“Matter fact I’m just going to thank Candy,” Cardi B tweeted. “She put my performance on Fox News giving it more views that boosted the views on YouTube and is counting towards my streams and sales. STREAM UP AND WAP. REMEMBER GROWN PARENTS ONLY YOU CAN MONITOR WHAT YOUR KIDS WATCH NO1 ELSE.”
“That performance was disgusting,” Owens tweeted.
Owens further said that Cardi B was like a “cancer cell to culture.”
After some back-and-forth between the women, Cardi B posted images of tweets, supposedly from Owen’s account, that read, “Yes, my husband did cheat on me with my brother. Yes, he said no when I asked to join them.”
Owens responded and said the tweets were photoshopped.
Cardi B claims the tweets weren’t photoshopped because many news outlets used them in their articles.
Owens then threatened to sue Cardi B. “I am 100% suing Cardi for that nonsense. You can’t just start throwing out wild lies against private members of my family because you’re upset someone called your out on your degenerate performance,” Owens tweeted.
In return, Cardi B threatened to sue Owens. “I’m going to sue candy for claiming I photoshopped a tweet that dozens of articles reported about back in November 2016z. First she claim me and my team photoshopped it now it was a fake tweet. Which one is it. Everyone is free to Google.”
After threats of legal action, the two continued fighting. Owens then posted a 13-minute video to her Instagram account reiterating her intent to sue Cardi B, to which Cardi Bresponded on Twitter, “Not candy doing a whole 13 minute video of this s*** on IG.”

The Tate Brothers and Associates Face Human Trafficking Charges in Romania
In a recent development, the Tate brothers, Andrew and Tristan, along with two associates, find themselves at the center of a high-profile case involving human trafficking allegations.
The charges leveled against them indicate the formation of an organized criminal group in 2021 with the intent to carry out human trafficking operations not only in Romania but also in the United States and the United Kingdom, according to the BBC.
The investigation, which led to their arrest in December last year, has culminated in an indictment filed with the Bucharest court. According to the indictment, the Tate brothers are accused of luring their victims with false promises of love and marriage. Seven individuals have been identified as alleged victims, who were later coerced and subjected to a harrowing ordeal.
Prosecutors contend that the victims were taken to locations in Ilfov county, Romania, where they faced constant surveillance, intimidation, and control. The defendants allegedly forced the victims into debt and coerced them into participating in pornographic activities, with the explicit material subsequently shared on social media platforms. Shockingly, one of the defendants is accused of raping a woman on two occasions in March 2022, further amplifying the gravity of the charges.
While the trial is not expected to commence immediately, as a Romanian judge is granted 60 days to inspect the case files, it is anticipated to be a protracted legal battle. The complexity of the case and the severity of the charges will undoubtedly result in a lengthy trial process, with several years potentially passing before a verdict is reached.
Representatives for the Tate brothers released a statement acknowledging the unsurprising nature of the news but maintaining their belief in their innocence.
As reported by the BBC, the Tate brothers media team stared, “While this news is undoubtedly predictable, we embrace the opportunity it presents to demonstrate their innocence and vindicate their reputation.”
They expressed their eagerness to present a comprehensive body of evidence meticulously collected over time, which they believe will substantiate their claims of innocence and restore their tarnished reputation.
However, it should be noted that additional charges, such as money laundering and trafficking of minors, are still under investigation. If evidence is uncovered to support these allegations, a separate indictment could be filed, further complicating the legal proceedings for the defendants.
Andrew Tate, who gained notoriety through his participation in the reality television show Big Brother, has a controversial past, having been removed from the show in 2016 following a video that appeared to depict him assaulting a woman.
Despite subsequent bans on social media platforms due to his contentious statements, he has managed to amass a following, particularly among young men, by promoting an ostentatious and hyper-masculine lifestyle.
As the case unfolds, public attention will undoubtedly be drawn to the trial, with many eagerly awaiting the outcome and hoping for justice to be served for the alleged victims. The complex web of charges and the high-profile nature of the defendants ensure that this trial will be closely monitored and scrutinized by the media and the public alike.
