Cardi B Responds To 'Girls' Song Controversy, Apologizes To LGBTQ Community

Rita Ora

Recently Rita Ora has come under serious fire and criticism for her recent single "Girls", which she collaborated on with Cardi B, Charli XCX, and Bebe Rexha.

'I would never intentionally cause harm to other LGBTQ+ people or anyone. I have had romantic relationships with women and men throughout my life and this is my personal journey.

After disappearing from social media on Saturday following some harsh comments from Azealia Banks, the "Bodak Yellow" star was tweeting Tuesday and sticking up for the new song she's featured on, "Girls".

The video for the song has already been shot with a planned release sometime in the near future.

Ora added, "I am sorry how I expressed myself in my song has hurt anyone".

The song "does more harm than good for the LGBTQ community", singer Hayley Kiyoko said on twitter.

She also quote-tweeted a fan who wrote, "I went through this myself".

The "Bodak Yellow" singer took the moment to also apologize for her past use of gay slurs, loosely referencing a controversy a year ago when her fiancé Offset used the phrase "I can not vibe with queers" in a freestyle verse and she defended him. I have strived to be a contributor to the LGBTQ+ community throughout my entire career and always will be'. "I learned and i stopped using it", Cardi continued.

Upon its release last week, some took issue with the song's lyrics, suggesting they played up to harmful stereotypes about bisexual people and "fuelled the male gaze", which Cardi has now addressed.

"I don't need to drink wine to kiss girls; I've loved women all my life", she wrote.

Distraction hitmaker Kehlani also revealed her thoughts on the song, stating: ' I have an incredible song out with one of the artists, and would love to work with the other three as well.

"Not everybody knows the correct "terms" to use".
