The clapbacks continue for Cardi B

After firing back just days ago at Twitter claims she'd been "canceled," the Grammy-winning rapper has now slammed accusations of homophobia and transphobia waged against her online amid Pride Month. 

The situation began on Monday when a tweet pointed out the star is mentioned in an episode of Hulu's Love, Victor, which centers on a high school student struggling with his sexual orientation. "Thats crazy, considering the woman is homophobic and transphobic," a critic replied in a tweet

Cardi did not take the allegation lightly as she slammed the comment, writing back, "How the fuvk am i homophobic or transphobic?have you been to a carribean island where you really see homophobia! Have you dealt with a parent that can't accept you for your sexuality?i said some ignorant things b4 that apologized for & educated myself on it don't mean I'm homo.." The 27-year-old performer has previously said she's had "experiences" with women

She continued, "Ya keep using that same 1 video that I apologize for over & over again to call me homophobic & transphobic 1 but never post about the ones where I support the LGBT community which are multiples and the multiple tweets I posted in support."

"And I don't support the LGBT community because I have 'gay fans,'" Cardi clarified. "I support because of the confused feelings I had growing up on is it normal to like girls? I support because I know how hard it was for my gay cousin to come out to his very strict Dominican family...I support because I know the pain my cousin from my mom side which is a Tran " have a f--ked up relationship with her dad for years ! I support because I seen the transitions & the feelings my glam team having during their time with they body transition & my sister...Coming out to my mom & dad religious people as gay."

"So before ya make it cool to call me homophobic & transphobic," she concluded, "learn what those words mean and research my encouragement to the LGBT community b4 ya motherf--kers even knew who was CardiN."
