After receiving a Grammy as the first solo female artist to win best rap album, Cardi B has gone Instagram MIA.
An Instagram search for the rapper, who goes by “iamcardib”, yields “User not found”, the social media platform shows Monday.
Cardi B had 40.7 million followers and 575 posts.
According to Twitter user @Th3_D4RK_NIT3, “Cardi B posted a rant on Instagram only to delete it minutes later. Is her actions justified or nah?”

She was responding to same hateful comments after her Grammy win.
“I fucking worked my ass off, locked myself in the studio for 3 months, didn’t go to sleep in my own bed, sometimes for 4 days straight – pregnant!” Cardi explained in the deleted video.
“While everybody was harassing me like, ‘You’re not gonna do it, we know you pregnant, your career’s over.'”
“I’ve been taking a lot of shit today. I’m seeing a lot of bullshit today and I saw a lot of shit last night, and I’m sick of this shit,” she said.
She concluded: “THANK YOU EVERYONE THAT SUPPORTED ME AND LISTEN. I’m thankful and grateful and again thank you to all the artist that gave me a feature.”
Cardi B just won best rap album for Invasion of Privacy at the 61st Grammys on Sunday, her first Grammy after receiving seven nominations.
On the flip side, Cardi B did receive quite a few congratulatory messages as well.
However, Cardi B accidentally thanked late legend Tom Petty for a bunch of flowers.
She then received some flowers which were accompanied by a note quoting lyrics by Petty — who died of an accidental drug overdose in 2017 — and appeared to mistakenly think the rocker had sent them.
“Thank you Tom Petty for the flowers,” Cardi wrote in a post on her Instagram Story, which has since been deleted. “I left the room but the flowers were very big. I want to say thank you so much.”
Cardi also thanked Petty for the accompanying note, describing the words as “beautiful.”
The note quoted Petty’s song “Walls (Circus),” reading, “You’ve got a big heart. So big it could crush this town.”
It remains unclear who sent the bouquet.
