Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B came under fire earlier this month by some of their fans after they dropped a brand new song, “WAP,” which came along with a music video including the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, Kylie Jenner.
For the most part, the song has been appreciated by fans, however, there exists a select group of people who aren’t happy about the reality star’s inclusion, because they don’t consider her as part of the culture. Hot New Hip Hop says this resentment has only intensified over the last 48 hours.
Reportedly, a new Change petition was created this weekend which features approximately 55,000 signatures. The petition summary claims that the video for the new track was “perfect” until they saw Kylie Jenner in it.
According to Hot New Hip Hop, the video, shared with the public on the 7th of August, features Jenner right around the middle. Supporters of the petition claim the family has been exploiting black people to “stay relevant” for decades.
Commenters and supporters of the petition described Kylie Jenner as a “culture vulture” who profits from the hard work of others and uses it for further press and mainstream attention.
Regardless of the internet vitriol, fans know Megan Thee Stallion and Kylie Jenner have hung around the same circles lately. As it was previously reported, rumor has it that Tory Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion got into a fight at a house party because of her.
Tory Lanez was booked on gun possession charges after he supposedly shot her in the foot after a bitter argument over Kylie. While this hasn’t been confirmed, media personalities such as Adam22 from NoJumper and DJ Akademiks have cited inside sources who claim the rumors are true.
If there really was bad blood between Megan and Kylie, however, Kylie probably wouldn’t have appeared in a music video with her. It’s unlikely the petition will lead to the reality star’s actual removal, although, the same thing can’t be said for Tory Lanez, who was dropped from the music video version of Kehlani’s most recent song.
