Cardi B won’t stand for the haters like Azealia Banks who bashed the hot new rapper for the way she speaks and writes.

The “Bodak Yellow” artist took to Instagram Saturday afternoon with a lengthy post calling out Banks after she labeled Cardi “a caricature of a black woman” during an interview with The Breakfast Club on Friday.

“The difference between me and you, I’ve never pretended to be or represent someone I’m not! I’ve made it where I am for being myself and staying true to that,” Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, wrote.

“You busy trying to be a voice of reason and a representative for women of color when you can’t even reason with yourself,” she continued.

Less than an hour after she posted to Instagram, Cardi B deleted her account and made her Twitter account private.

Banks bashed the Bronx-born rapper’s grammar and spelling during her Friday interview, saying: “If my spelling and grammar was that bad, I’d be canceled. If Nicki Minaj spelled like that, we would be ragging on her all day.”

“How smart are you if you don’t know that the meaning of illiterate means to not know how to read or write,” Cardi, 25, who is Dominican and Trinidadian, shot back in her Instagram post.

“I can do both, and speak 2 languages fluently. Just because I mix a few words up forget to use commas or misspell a few words doesn’t make me illiterate and doesn’t make me stupid,” the Billboard 100 artist added.

“Because I laugh a little harder or talk a little louder doesn’t make me a caricature! You think your advocating for women and your doing the opposite.”

As a final note to Banks, Cardi wrote that she was praying for Banks.

Despite taking shots at Cardi B this week for her style of speaking, Banks, 26, previously commended the artist. In an XXL Mag interview in 2017, the “212” rapper praised Cardi’s personality and music.

“I really, really like Cardi B. I followed Cardi B on Instagram before she started rapping and I was like, Oh my God, this girl just reminds me of all the girls I went to middle school with,” she responded. “I always thought she was funny, and when she started rapping, I was like… what is she doing? Then I heard “Foreva” and I was like, ‘OK, this is really f–king good, she’s not playing.'”

Since then, Banks, who has made countless headlines in the past few years for her brashness, clearly changed tunes. After Cardi B responded on Twitter Friday night to the interview, Banks continued to take more digs at the mom-to-be, writing, “You were gyrating on stage at Coachella with a baby in your stomach …. telling rolling stone that you don’t use condoms as if HIV is not a huge health issue for many of your black female fans… it’s sloppy… do better sis.”

Banks previously took a swipe at Cardi in September, calling her “the poor man’s Nicki [Minaj].

Cardi B is expecting her first child with her fiancé, Migos rapper Offset. She is reportedly due in July after revealing her pregnancy on “Saturday Night Live” last month.
