Detailing the ordeal, Cardi said: “The photographer was trying to get close to me, like, ‘You want to get into this magazine?’. Then he pulled his dick out. I was so fucking mad. I was like, ‘You’re fucking bugging’.”

She added: “You know what’s so crazy, I told the magazine owner and he just looked at me like, ‘So? And?’.

“There’s girls from the hood who went through the same type of treatment. They make you feel like you have to do a certain type of thing for the most bullshit shit. It really happens every day.”
