Cardi B Points Out Flaws In the #MeToo Movement, Says It Ignores Video Vixens

The #MeToo movement has struck an important conversation in Hollywood, which has lead to initiatives like Time's Up that helps to tackle sexual harassment claims. But the movement has yet to effectively seep into the music industry, an area where sexual misconduct and abuse are often covered up.

Cardi B has noticed the lack of awareness in the music industry as well, and has called out #MeToo for not being fully inclusive when it comes to women who aren't actresses, singers or directors. In an interview with Cosmopolitan, she says the movement most likely won't have an affect on the hip-hop community, especially with the women who are known for embracing their sexuality as sometimes it's part of their job. "A lot of video vixens have spoke about this and nobody gives a fuck," Cardi explains. "When I was trying to be a vixen, people were like, 'You want to be on the cover of this magazine?' Then they pull their dicks out. I bet if one of these women stands up and talks about it, people are going to say, 'So what? You’re a ho. It don’t matter.'"
