After fans started a petition for the removal of Kylie Jenner from Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” music video, Cardi took to Twitter Sunday to defend the cameo, which some objected to on the grounds that, as a wildly successful reality star and cosmetics mogul, Jenner, who is white, was taking a slot that could have gone to another up-and-coming female musician of color, like her video co-stars Mulatto, Sukihana, and Rubi Rose, who appeared alongside more well-established singers Normani and Rosalía in the video’s extremely wet mansion. In a series of (now deleted) tweets, Cardi explained why Jenner made the cut. In so many words, Kylie and her family, especially mom Kris Jenner, are just plain nice.
