"'I'm seeing a lot of bullsh*t today and I saw a lot of sh*t last night and I'm sick of this sh*t, I worked hard for my motherf*****r album", she was seen saying on the video.

But in the hours since her win, she's come under vicious attack from fans who say the award was more suited to the late Mac Miller for his fifth studio album Swimming.

After being named the Grammy victor at the 61st annual ceremony, Cardi accepted the trophy alongside her Migos rapper husband, 27.

"I remember previous year when I didn't win for "Bodak Yellow" and everybody was like, 'Cardi got snubbed, '" she recalled. There was also flak from fellow singer Ariana Grande, who went on a rant on social media when Cardi B went onstage to win the award. "Thank you Bardi Gang because y'all love me through the good and the bad".

BET is in "custodial" mode right now, mopping after a low-level staffer allegedly pushed the send button on the inflammatory tweet.

Meanwhile, the 26-year-old had another reason to celebrate over the weekend after her seven-month-old daughter Kulture said "mama" for the first time.

The criticism that Cardi B has faced has encouraged a bunch of celebrities to stand up for her, including Chance The Rapper and Lady Gaga.

Cardi deactivated her Instagram account on Monday (February 11) after people left negative messages on her page. "Maybe I need to start smoking weed", she quipped, to laughs and applause from the glitzy gala set.

"She was so hurt by his cheating", our source pointed out, after the Migos member was accused of trying to plan a threesome with Summer Bunni and Cuban Doll, as seen in an alleged text conversation dated June 2018. "Thank you for always supporting me!"

BET swiftly issued a statement, apologizing to the rapper and stressing that they have respected and supported her since the beginning of her lengthy career. The post does not reflect how we feel about Nicki.

In yet another video, she continued to share her gratitude for all the support. "We are committed to doing everything we can to address the situation", the statement read in part.
