Cardi B thinks homophobic people are “just ugly”.
The chart-topping rapper – who is married to Migos star Offset – has taken to Twitter to hit out at homophobes and to voice her support for the gay community.

Cardi has previously taken to social media to hit back at accusations of homophobia and transphobia, after she came under fire from a Twitter follower.
The ‘WAP’ hitmaker wrote: “How the f*** am i homophobic or transphobic?have you been to a carribean island where you really see homophobia! Have you dealt with a parent that can’t accept you for your sexuality?i said some ignorant things b4 that apologized for & educated myself on it don’t mean I’m homo (sic)”
Cardi subsequently explained that she’s had family members who have struggled with their sexuality.
She said on Twitter: “I don’t support the LGBT community because I have “gay fans” I support because of the confused feelings I had growing up on is it normal to like girls? I support because I know how hard it was for my gay cousin to come out to his very strict Dominican family
