Cardi B has come under attack after a cartoon meme featuring a transphobic slur was posted to the rapper's official Facebook page. On Sunday, a now-deleted post captioned, "I hope nobody sees this tr*nny leave my house" was called out by fans. In the wake of widespread criticism, the rapper has denied her involvement, claiming it was a "former team member."

“It’s come to my attention that there have been offensive posts made on what used to be my Facebook page," Cardi B wrote on Twitter. “For the past year and a half a FORMER team member has been the only one with access to the account.”

Select fans, however, remained critical, citing an incident back in 2017 where the rapper was also reprimanded for using the same slur across social media.

According to Okayplayer, Cardi shared screenshots of exchanges with the person responsible for handling her Facebook page on Sunday, writing, “I have always owned my shit. After the last time the LGBTQ community educated me on the right and wrong way to say things. I would never forget that. This was the mistake of another individual and I apologize for them!”

The alleged staffer has reportedly been fired.
