While the legal battle between Cardi B. and blogger Tasha K may finally be coming to an end, on Monday a federal judge ordered an injunction mandating Tasha’s removal of all posts and videos defaming the “Up” rapper.
The move comes amid Tasha K’s appeal stemming from the defamation lawsuit she suffered earlier this year which found her liable for “defamation, two other forms of wrongdoing , invasion of privacy by misrepresentation, and intentionally inflicting emotional distress Per court documents obtained by TMZ, Tasha has five days to clean up all of her social media accounts and her YouTube page unless she wins an appeal over the injunction. If she does, she might possibly repost all the vitriolic content again.
As previously reported by The root, in January, a federal judge ruled that Tasha must pay the “Bodak Yellow” rapper $4.25 million in damages, punitive damages and legal fees. During the trial, which took place in federal court in Georgia, Cardi and Tasha spoke out. The former testified that she felt “suicidal” because of Tasha’s videos, noting that “only an evil person could do this shit”. When Tasha spoke, she initially admitted that she “knowingly posted lies about the rapper,” but later tried to do so when questioned by her own lawyers, per Billboard.
Just before this injunction, Cardi said goodbye to her official Twitter and Instagram accounts after exchanging words with online trolls who wrote disrespectful things about her children.
“I’m deleting my twitter but on God I hate this stupid fucking fanbase,” she tweeted just before deleting her account. Whether or not she will return remains to be seen.
