Cardi B continues to show Mac Miller love, defending the late rapper from past cyberbullying attacks.

When a Twitter user criticized the Recording Academy for inviting Miller’s family to the 2019 Grammy Awards, where his album Swimming was up for best rap album but lost to Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy, the “Up” rapper wasn’t having the “mean energy,” criticizing social media for attacking Miller when he was charged with a DUI after crashing his car in August 2018.

“His family didn’t have no mean energy so why you? I hate when ya make hate tweets like this go viral but where was the love when ya bullied him for months on this app & he was crying out for help? Making fun of him when he crash his car?” Cardi shot back Wednesday (March 10) on Twitter while sharing an article about Miller’s family “rooting for Cardi B” ahead of the awards ceremony. “Ya don’t care till somebody is gone.”

The 28-year-old rapper also explained why she freely expresses herself on social media, and how it’s served as a stage for a lot of cyberbullying of artists who turn to their vices to cope with it. She even recently deactivated her Twitter account last week when fans demanded she release her sophomore album following the release of a doll.

“This is why I express myself whether is on live, twitter or curse people out cause some artist got soo much hurt inside from bullyin on these apps & they afraid to speak & turn to other thing to numb the pain,” she continued. “Ya forgot real quick how when he drop the album ya was like ‘flop”NBC.'”

Although she didn’t appreciate being mentioned in the recycled discourse about Miller’s loss at the 2019 Grammys, Cardi refocused the conversation on mental health, which her fans praised her for on Twitter. The “Bodak Yellow” artist also reshared a video of her dedicating her Grammy win to Miller when she exclaimed, “I’m sharing this Grammy with you, motherf—er! Rest in peace!”

Cardi then called attention to a particular scene in the Framing Britney Spears documentary when a paparazzo explained during his interview that Britney Spears never told him to stop following her and taking video footage of her. “Did you saw that pap on Brit documentary? He was like she never told us to stop even tho she ain’t need to cause wat they were doing to her was wrong,” Cardi wrote.

Following Miller’s death from an overdose, Cardi told Billboard that she hoped it didn’t stem from the pressure of fame. “I feel like people don’t know that fame brings you a lot of sadness, a lot of pressure, and I just hope that now, he’s in a better place,” Cardi said, adding that fans can keep his memory alive by “keeping his music alive, keep repeating his videos and everything — and just appreciate his music. I know that he wants people listening to his music. That’s what I would want.”

At this year’s Grammys, set for this Sunday on CBS, Cardi is among those slated to appear in a performer capacity. As Cardi herself revealed earlier this month, she will give fans renditions of both “Press” and “Mi Mami,” the latter of which is a collab with El Alfa.
