Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion recently dropped a star-studded collab music video called WAP, and it has made fans go wild. When the duo announced the track on August 4, 2020, fans knew they were in for a treat, but no one could have guessed just how impactful it was going to be. Everything seemed perfect for fans except for one moment in the video that has received some major backlash. Midway through the WAP music video, Kylie struts down a hallway for a 20-second cameo and her brief appearance has caused a ton of reactions online. So much, that someone started a petition on change.org demanding to remover her from Cardi and Meg’s video. At the time of writing this, the petition has received more than 60K signatures.
Even though the video featured appearances from musicians like Rosalía, Normani and Sukihana, a large of fans was displeased by the inclusion of the youngest Jenner sister. Fans cited several reasons for why they were signing the petition, including that Kylie did not add much to the video or its concept. Many reasons also centred around her past history of culturally appropriating Black women and also her lack of support for Meg during the recent shooting involving her and Canadian rapper Tory Lanez.

“The video was perfect until we saw K and I wanted to throw my phone,” the person who started the petition wrote on change.org. The petition, so far, has received more than 60K signatures and it is only increasing. Kyle has since been trending on Twitter, with fans slamming her and showing their displeasure of her inclusion in the video.

There is no word on whether this petition will actually lead to Kylie being removed from the video and the youngest Jenner sister is also yet to react on this recent criticism. WAP is the lead single of Cardi B’s second studio album, which reportedly is expected to be released later this year.
