The singer and her sister Hennessy Carolina have been sued for calling a group of bathers “racist Trump supporters”.
Cardi B was shocked to learn that she and her sister Hennessy Carolina are being sued after calling a group of beachgoers in the Hamptons in New York as ‘racist supporters’ of Donald Trump.
According to the TMZ website, they had access to the documents of the lawsuit filed by Peter Caliendo, Pauline Caliendo and Manuel Alarcón, where it is said that the three are suing the rapper, his sister and Hennessy’s girlfriend, Michelle Díaz, claiming they were defamed on social media, labeling them racist after an argument in the Hamptons earlier this month.
The plaintiffs claim that they were enjoying their time on the Smith Point beach with their families when Hennessy angrily approached them spitting, insulting and threatening them, just because one of them was wearing a cap with Trump’s famous line, MAGA ‘Make America. Great Again ‘.
At the time, Cardi tweeted a video of the fight, saying that her sister was being harassed because she was with her girlfriend on the beach and for being an Afro-Hispanic gay couple.
The group also claims that Cardi B, Hennessy and Michelle edited the video and posted it on social media to falsely paint them as racists. Cardi posted the clip later that day with audio that apparently showed Hennessy explaining that someone from the group told her to return to her country.
It is not clear how much they seek with the process, but they ask for compensation.
