Bronx Rapper Cardi B has recently been very vocal about her displeasure with American media outlet The Shade Room (TSR) over what she feels to be negative coverage of her life and career.

The rapper posted a series of Instagram videos in which she accused the celebrity news outlet of launching a Cardi B hate campaign. She specifically called out TSR's founder Angelica Nwandu for continuing to post negative content about the people in her life.

In summer 2018, Cardi expressed her frustration over the blog's coverage, and said she no longer wanted its team to post anything about her or her sister, Hennessy Carolina.

In a since deleted Instagram post, Cardi wrote; "We don't need to be posted on blogs with people that just got negative shit to say just so you could hate your life, your looks or your day cause their not happy with them self thank you,"

She further goes on to insist that TSR might have calmed down with the slander on her but they have then taken the heat to her friends and associates including her husband, Offset; the members of City Girls; and Pierre "Pee" Thomas, the CEO of her label, Quality Control.

"She know that she not allowed to post me, so what does she do? She posts mad shit of people that she know that I'm associated with," Cardi said in a now-deleted video, before listing off the accomplishments of Offset, City Girls, and the QC boss."I'm not saying that I only want people to post positive shit about us. At the end of the day, a blog is a blog, and I feel like they gotta post the good and the bad. But come on, now. That bias shit that people wanna do all the time because they on a fucking hate campaign--they on some 'Fuck QC,' 'Fuck Cardi B' campaign. That shit is getting wack."

There were also a few subliminal messages in the rappers joint single with her husband Offset titled "Clout" which many feel were directed at Angelica and The Shade Room.
