Cardi B and her sister Hennessy Carolina just beat a defamation case brought against the latter, who was accused of using defamatory remarks at The Hamptons in September 2020.

The rapper and her sister were sued for defamation, assault and battery by three beachgoers, one of whom was wearing a MAGA hat. Carolina allegedly blocked one of their vehicles and called them “racist, MAGA supporters.”

A lawsuit filed in Suffolk County stated that the three beachgoers found “racist” defamatory. Though Cardi B was not with her sister at the time of the incident, she took to Twitter to share a video of the altercation.
