8 Celebrities Who Have DARED to Diss Belcalis Almanzar (a.k.a. Cardi B)
February 17, 2018
You don’t get to the top without making enemies on the way up — and even though she’s new to the scene,
knows all about that. The 25-year-old rapper has only released two mixtapes, but she’s been breaking records right and left over the past couple of years. From holding the spot for longest-running #1 solo by a female rapper on the Hot 100 list to surpassing Cardi B as the first woman to have five singles on the list of Top 10 Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, she’s Beyonce slaying.
But just because she’s seeing so much success right now doesn’t mean everyone loves her. Having 18 million Instagram followers doesn’t make her immune to haters — even famous ones. In fact,
stars still throw shade at her just as much as trolls do on the Internet.
We don’t think Cardi B minds too much, though. The “Bodak Yellow” crooner is too confident to care when it comes to
wardrobe malfunctions, so we bet the same goes for all of the A-list disses sent her way:

Nicki Minaj and Cardi started hanging out, they'd make such an iconic girl gang. Unfortunately, we don't see that happening anytime soon. While both of them have gone out of their way to show support for the other on social media, that hasn't stopped them from throwing shade. We're getting serious mixed signals.
It all started when Nicki appeared on the "No Flag" track and said, "I heard these labels tryna make another me. Everything you getting little h*e is 'cause of me." Even though she said she'd written it months before and it had nothing to do with Cardi, fans were still speculating. Especially when the "Bodak Yellow" singer rapped in the "No Limit" music video with some Minaj-like moves and outfits. When fans pointed out that she seemed to be copying Nicki, the veteran rapper simply tweeted, "I'm glad y'all peeped."

Sounds like someone's a little jealous. What do you think? Last year,
Azealia Banks went after Charlamagne the God for giving Cardi and her single, "Bodak Yellow," so much support. "Black men in hiphop should have gotten me, Remy, AND Nicki a number one before they gave Cardi or Iggy one," she said on Twitter.
Cardi clapped back, of course, in the
perfect way. She posted a video on Instagram of Azealia dancing to her song and captioned it, "One of the reasons 'Bodak Yellow' went #1. Cuz even the HATERS love it." LOL.

Considering just how much
Joseline Hernandez has in common with Cardi, it's a wonder she's got so much hate for the "Bodak Yellow" singer. They never met, but they did both start out as strippers before they starred on Love and Hip Hop.
Still, that didn't stop her from taking a stab at Cardi in her single this month, "Hate Me Now." In it, she refers to the rapper as both a "h*e" and a "Bronx b*tch." Ouch! But instead of stooping to her level, Cardi just ignored her diss track. We love that!

Ugly God didn't like when people started calling his GF a gold digger after he posted a pic with her on Instagram — and who could blame him? The way he responded, though, could have been handled a little better. "If I date a girl for two years, she a gold digger," he wrote to his 3 million followers. "But if another rap n**** cuff a stripper, it's relationship goals."
We don't know why he was surprised that fans thought he was referring to
Offset and Cardi. He was quick to clarify that he wasn't talking about them, but was only trying to make a point. At least his intentions were pure!

You know when someone gives you a back-handed compliment and you don't know whether to thank them or be angry? Well, that's exactly the kind of congratulations
Jamie Oriel gave Offset and Cardi when she found out they were engaged in October. She used to be romantically linked to the Migos rapper, and they even have a son together, Kody.
"Congrats to my son daddy and his step mother whom he have yet to meet," she wrote on Instagram, before deleting the post entirely. "Hopefully he at least get an invite to the wedding." This was followed by a shrug emoji, which we bet was exactly what Cardi did when she saw the subtle diss.

With a quick scroll through
King Yella's Instagram, it's easy to see that he and Cardi used to be close. They've got countless pictures together, but it was those photos that actually started his beef with the rapper. In an attempt to rile up Offset, Yella started posting about his previous relationship with Cardi — kind of like Ray J's "I Hit It First" song about Kim Kardashian.
Offset didn't react very well to this — can you blame him? — which prompted Yella to write a savage message on his Instagram. We'll sum it up for ya in just one line. "F*ck both of y'all," he said at one point.

We feel like 99% of these disses wouldn't happen if social media didn't exist. In fact,
Moniece Slaughter's entire feud with Cardi can be blamed on Instagram and Twitter alone. It all started when the 30-year-old singer tweeted that Cardi's sister, Hennessy Carolina, had blocked her on Instagram, so the famous family member felt the need to explain herself.
"I blocked you cause I peeped you liking f*cked up sh*t about my sister," she said. So even though Moniece claims to be a huge Cardi fan, we're not sure we can believe her.

Rumor has it that
Celina Powell is carrying Offset's baby, but he won't admit to it. He even dodged DNA papers and served her with a cease and desist order! But that hasn't changed anything for this Instagram model, who has been romantically linked to rappers for years. Her story remains the same as ever.
And while it'd be bad enough if the child really is Offset's and he cheated on Cardi (again), it's even worse that Celina says she's going to name her baby Karma. If that isn't a diss, we don't know what is!
