Nicki fans couldn't help but tweet the 'Bodak Yellow' rapper, calling her out for copying Nicki. One fan wrote: "Cardi B copying Nicki is really getting to me. I like Cardi but make ya own moves darlin".
Another one commented: "it’s cardi copying nicki for me & tryna prove how she not☠️☠️☠️".
However a lot of fans were also defending Cardi stating that she's been making these types of music videos for a long time, especially long before she blew up.
