Republican Rep. Glenn Grothman went after Cardi B on the House floor Thursday saying he’s been receiving complaints to his office about the rapper’s performance at the Grammy awards last month.  

‘They wonder why we are paying the FCC if they feel that this should be playing in living rooms across the nation,’ the Wisconsin Republican said. ‘I realize that Kamala Harris has used her fame to promote this performer, but I assure the FCC that millions of Americans would view her performance as inconsistent with basic decency.’

Cardi B – who performed her hit ‘WAP,’ an acronym for ‘wet a** p****,’ with Megan Thee Stallion – shot back on Twitter, asking why the congressman was devoting his time to this when police violence was dominating the news. 

Republican Rep. Glenn Grothman said Thursday on the House floor that constituents are calling him to complain about Cardi B’s Grammy performance of ‘WAP,’ which he said was ‘inconsistent with basic decency’

‘This gets me so mad ya don’t even know!’ she wrote. ‘I think we all been on the edge this week since we seen police brutality back to back including watching one of the biggest case in history go down DUE to police brutality but wait!’ she said in reference to the Derek Chauvin guilty verdict in the killing of Minneapolis black man George Floyd.  

‘This is wat state representative decide to talk about,’ she said of Grothman’s floor speech. 

Grothman chided the FCC, the Federal Communications Commission, which regulates obscene, indecent or profane content on broadcast media.  

‘Wake up, FCC, and begin to do your job,’ he said. ‘The moral decline of America is partly due to your utter complacency.’   

The FCC amassed 1,316 individual complaints so far about the 2021 Grammys, according to public posting’s on the agency’s website – many of which reference the ‘WAP’ performance.  

A spokesperson wouldn’t say if Grothman had reached out to the FCC personally to share his grievances.  

In another tweet, Cardi B wrote, ‘Mind you Nikkas can’t give a word about Jacob Blake or give him proper Justice but this part of the reason why !!!!!’ she said referencing the 29-year-old black man who was shot seven times in the back last year by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, leaving him paralyzed.

‘They giving seats to F***IN IDIOTS!!’ she said.  ‘This is why people gotta vote, elect better people cause you got these dum a**es representing states.’ 

Cardi B also featured a tweet from a Roll Call reporter asking people if they’ve called their member of Congress to complain about the ‘WAP’ performance – an effort to back up Grothman’s claims. 

‘Smh! THERES PEOPLE DYING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’ she wrote.  

Grothman referenced Vice President Kamala Harris in his speech because the then-California senator was captured doing speech prep to a Cardi B song in January 2019, as she was launching her own bid for the White House. 

Cardi B, however, was a vocal supporter of another Democratic candidate, Sen. Bernie Sanders, filming videos and interviewing him throughout the course of the 2020 Democratic primary campaign.  

Cardi B’s Grammy performance with Megan Thee Stallion featured her pole-dancing on the heel of a gigantic stiletto and gyrating on an oversized bed.
