Tuesday night, rapper Cardi B accused an NYPD officer of placing her in a chokehold.
In a since-deleted tweet Cardi wrote, “I can’t believe this cop put me on a choke hole just now shit is crazy these NY cops don’t know how to do they job F–K 12.”
She later responded to a fan asking if the officer was white, writing, “YEUP HE WAS.”
In August, Cardi announced her support of Colin Kaepernick during the MTV Video Music Awards, “As long as you kneel with us, we’re gonna be standing for you,” the rapper said.
She also shared her thoughts on law enforcement last year, tweeting, “Stop telling me to be safe. Its not the people killin people is the cops.”
