Last Thursday, the official clip of Cardi B and Megan Day Stallion was released for the song WAP, which gained only 50 million views on YouTube this weekend and received a lot of positive reactions, which saw the clip as a message of female empowerment in general and black women in particular. Despite the enthusiasm, many fans of the singer duo expressed their dissatisfaction with the participation of trash star Kylie Jenner. They accuse 22-year-old Kylie of cultural appropriation, after the petitioner initiating the call to remove her from the clip immediately stated that she was a "culture thief" unworthy to participate in a clip that was all about female empowerment of black women.

The reality star appears in the clip for a short segment (at 1:40), in which she is seen walking down a decorated hallway wearing a mottled print. An outraged viewer opened a petition on Change.org calling for the removal of Jenner from the clip, bringing so far more than 47,000 signatures. The petition read: "The clip was perfect, until I saw Kylie and wanted to throw away my phone." The petition and Twitter expressed support for the petition as the hashtag #NotKylie began to gain momentum. A fan wrote in response: "She is a culture thief who does not even remember what her real skin tone is! Get rid of this culture thief !!!". Another fan wrote: "Kylie Jenner is just superfluous in this clip and that's the nicest way I can put it." Another added: "So Cardi wanted diversity in the video, cool. But you let Kylie (the white woman) get more screen time and recognition than any other star who was featured in the clip."Petition to Remove Kylie Jenner from Cardi B's Clip (Screenshot, Change.org)
One fan toyed with the idea: "If they were looking to include a white woman in the clip, they could have easily chosen Ann Hathaway instead of Kylie Jenner." Another viewer wrote: "I enjoyed the WAP clip, but why does Kylie Jenner have to ruin it? No one asked for it." A Cardi fan expressed her disappointment: "I was very disappointed with the decision to host Kylie. The fact that she appears at the front of the stage and more than Norman Corday, for example, only proves that a white woman is always preferred over anyone else." Another fan brought support: "Important black lives, important black women. Kylie Jenner does not deserve to appear among these legendary black women."That's all the noise - Kylie Jenner's ten seconds in the WAP clip from the clip of Cardi B and Megan Day Stallion for the song WAP (screenshot, Youtube) snatches in the head because of Kylie Jenner (screenshot, Youtube)
Kylie has yet to respond to the storm around her and shared on Instagram a series of behind-the-scenes photos of the shoot, including a photo of her sitting next to Cardi B with her mother, Chris Jenner, in the background. Cardi also did not directly address the hysteria, but did defend Kylie when she took to Twitter to thank all the "influential" women who participated in their clip. She wrote: "I want to thank every woman who took part in my clip! The fact that you made time for your schedule means a lot to me! It was very important to me to include different women, from different races and backgrounds, but also powerful and influential. "
One fan has since edited it outside the clip and shared it online, where he has won support with many fans who have announced that it is now the official WAP clip.
