Cardi B and Penn Badgley just don’t need to be social media friends. Cardi B flings curses at fans on Twitter, bad ass and all. Penn Badgley once had to write a major apology to not only his fans and colleagues, but also to his ailing grandmother, and he has spent most of the past five years somehow avoiding the paparazzi. The star of “This Is Us” should just steer clear of Twitter and other social media platforms altogether.
But no. Badgley, who is half Cuban, recently used Twitter to play badass Cardi B (not in the updated version of “Barbie Dreams”), while simultaneously breaking his silence on the firing of his director.
Do it ever make sense why @iamcardib is not my Twitter bestie. Probably because she’s a toddler. pic.twitter.com/WvpI4i8PJf — Penn Badgley (@PennBadgley) August 3, 2018
Badgley, ever the philosopher, certainly gets why people might not be keen on their celeb having a Twitter social media friendship. “Do it ever make sense why @iamcardib is not my Twitter bestie,” he asked. “Probably because she’s a toddler.”
I’m picturing Cardi with that head full of sugar. Also I’m picturing this guy hanging on that makeup brush. Let’s not forget the famous when cardi is too young to look. Let’s save ourselves and skip the pencil-drawn Cardi face.
Cardi was undoubtedly jaded by the fake fan art, the fake lovey dovey tweets, the fake memes, the fake young. She certainly didn’t need to be insulted by such fakey stuff, but maybe she’s got it coming.
Just because she’s young, I suggest she get started on social media etiquette. That said, Badgley seems pretty gung ho about the idea, and if it’s what her fans want, I get it. Besides, why shouldn’t she be bad ass? She used to grow up in the first video of her rapping. Plus, while her recent hip-hop-obsessed bars are totally impressive, Badgley is dumber than a paper bag.
I am proud of Cardi B. The lyrics that resonate with me mostly follow the theme of new love and love it well. They tell a damn good story and are a step in the right direction. — Penn Badgley (@PennBadgley) August 3, 2018
Whether or not Badgley sees himself as Badty is another matter. His most recent track features Pitbull, “The Dirtiest Boy.”
Fans of Badgley might enjoy this “Don’t Be It” performance by Badgyphone, Badgley’s nickname for Cardi.
Did Cardi B just insult herself via Twitter?
