Cardi B decided to respond to a Twitter user who asked her why she no longer publicly discusses political matters.

“@iamcardib Used to talk about politics & political matters!” the fan wrote in a tweet Thursday. “What happened with that?!??”

It didn’t take long for Cardi to defend herself, writing, “I was tired of getting bullied by the republicans and also getting bashed by the same people I was standing up for.”

Shortly after, a troll replied to Cardi’s response, writing, “cus you sound like you’re slow when you talk and it was ruining everything.”

Cardi clapped back: “It was the only way YOU would of understand me.”
