Cardi B has deactivated her Instagram account after receiving backlash for her recent Grammy win, earning a trophy for Best Rap Album for her debut album, Invasion of Privacy.

The “Money” rapper has not released a statement explicitly stating why she chose to leave the social networking site that helped create her popularity, but she did share a video responding to those arguing that her win wasn’t entirely deserved.

“I’m seeing a lot of bullsh-t today and I saw a lot of sh-t last night, and I’m sick of this sh-t,” said Cardi as she fumed at the camera. She went on to assert that she earned her success.

“I work hard for my motherf-ckng album,” she continued. “I remember last year when I didn’t win for ‘Bodak Yellow’ and everybody was like, ‘Cardi got snubbed.’ Now this year’s a f-cking problem?”

Cardi also distanced herself from the an offensive tweet BET sent, announcing her win while jabbing her rap rival Nicki Minaj.

“It’s not my style for people to put other people down to uplift somebody else,” she said. “That’s not my style and that’s not what I’m with. I don’t support that.”

Cardi has a history of directly engaging with her critics, but this time she’s opted to remove herself from the conversation — at least temporarily.
