Cardi B blasted the NYPD Tuesday night in a now-deleted profanity-laced Instagram video.
Apparently, the dust-up occurred when, according to the rapper, the NYPD allegedly assisted in shutting down a back-to-school event hosted by her friend.
In the video, Cardi B accused the police department of scaring off the principal of the Brownsville school where her friend planned to host a back-to-school drive next week.
“I find that s–t so f—– up by the NYPD … it’s like this is really for the kids; Shorty was really coming out her pockets, just to help the community, and it was for kids to have a fun, positive day,” Cardi fumed in the video.
But she was just getting started.
“I just find that s— so f—– up. And f— you and motherf—— suck a fart and suffocate on it. F— you!” she said and flipped a middle finger to the camera.
The NYPD later responded through a spokesperson that it was “not aware of this event and had no involvement in the event being cancelled. The NYPD will assist to ensure the success of the event.”
The city’s Department of Education called the situation a “misunderstanding” and said the event would go on as planned.
