There are many reasons why we love rapper Cardi B, not least because she's helped to keep us entertained during lockdown with her candid social media videos (remember that bikini wax one?).

Another is how quick she is to clap back at anyone who dares to speak negatively about her – and in this instance, about her body in particular. It appears that after she posted a fire shot of herself crouching down in a bikini, on what looks like a rooftop patio, some keyboard warriors had something to say about it.

The following day, Cardi (real name Belcalis Almánzar) took to Instagram once more to shut down any vicious rumours floating around online that she'd been editing her pictures. As per, she did it in the most iconic fashion, wearing a near identical outfit to the one she had on in the crouching-bikini pic, only in blue this time, not pink.

Captioning her video 'Leave my rolls alone', Cardi kicks things off by saying, "I have to do this video because I’m seeing y’all putting this edited Target picture of me looking like a mother**king square…

"So I have to do this video because yesterday I posted a picture too spicy, and the haters claimed that I was Photoshopping, so now I gotta show y’all this motherf**king body."

She then said, "Now I know a b*itch gained some weight... I had to make the thighs match the m*ther f*cking ass," before turning her attentions back to whoever dared cross her.

"I know you b*tches ain't talking when you shaped like seals and I know you ain't talking ya'll got sisters with bison backs and your mothers is shaped like walruses... I know you ain't body shaming me!"

She then, in true Cardi style, says, "Hold on, I'm actually holding it in. I ate breakfast, lunch and some ice cream... hold on," before breathing out, then re-sucking her stomach in. "I'm back again, again and again!"

As her final mic drop, the multi-award-winning musician then took the time to remind people that she has enough money for liposuction should she want it (sidenote: Cardi, we think you look banging!). "A b*tch got lipo money, I got lipo money!"

Cardi, who shares a daughter, Kulture, with rapper Offset, was met with plenty of praise in the comments (plus one from her baby daddy himself, simply saying: "Full meal").

That's how it's done. 👏👏👏
