Cardi B and Nicki Minaj Set Aside Feud, Go After Tomi Lahren For 21 Savage Deportation Joke
Cardi B and Nicki Minaj put their feud aside and realized they're on the same team when it comes to 21 Savage's recent legal troubles. On Sunday, the British rapper was arrested by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) for being in the country illegally. Conservative talking head Tomi Lahren made a distasteful joke about the Atlanta resident being deported on Twitter, and the beefing emcees went into full attack mode.
"Your obsession w/our culture is scary to say the least," Minaj wrote. "I hate giving you the attention you so desperately crave. Laughing @ ppl getting deported as if your ancestors discovered America. Are you Native American? You fkn clown."
"Don’t make me get my leash" Cardi wrote, referring to her own personal feud with Lahren where she told her she was going to walk her like a dog if she didn't leave her alone.
Upon his arrest, it was revealed that 21 Savage (real name Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph) has been living in the U.S. illegally since his visa expired in 2006, although lawyers have said he has a pending U-Visa application.
"We are working diligently to get Mr. Abraham-Joseph out of detention while we work with authorities to clear up any misunderstanding," Dina LaPolt said in a statement following his arrest, adding that he’s "a role model to the young people in the country." immigration attorney Kuck Baxter also released a statement on behalf of the rapper.
