Cardi B claimed online that officers from the NYPD placed her in an illegal chokehold in a series of now-deleted tweets. If the “Bodak Yellow” superstar’s tweets are factual, it appears the alleged incident took place on Tuesday (Sept. 19).
“I can’t believe this cop put me on a choke hole just now shit is crazy these NY cops don’t know how to do they job F*CK 12,” Cardi B tweeted at 6:24 PM ET yesterday. When a fan stated if the officer was a white person, the Bronx natives replied, “YEUP HE WAS.”
After a flurry of replies and retweets, Cardi took down the tweets and kept it moving. When a fan pondered on their timeline what the rapper was doing at the moment, she replied saying she was on her way to catch a flight.
The Shade Room captured the screen shots of Cardi’s tweets, which can be viewed in the posting below.
The use of the chokehold by NYPD officers has long since been declared illegal.
