Candace Owens thinks pornography is bad, but Cardi B doesn’t agree.

After the conservative political commentator took to social media with a call to “ban pornography” earlier this month, Cardi shared her thoughts on the matter — and the rapper doesn’t think X-rated content is all “that bad.”

“Ban pornography. It is a psychological weapon intended to weaken our men,” wrote Owens, 35, in a post shared to X (formerly Twitter) on May 21.

The former Daily Wire personality elaborated further in follow-up posts, writing that pornography was “created by the most depraved among our human race to psychologically introduce homosexuality, pedophilia and incest—religious sacraments to satanists.”

According to TMZ, Owens’ statements were later posted by a blog to Instagram, which prompted the “WAP” rapper to chime in on the platform: “Ommmggg why yall so against porn ? Is it that bad for yall ?”

“I enjoy it but I don’t know,” continued Cardi, 31, per the outlet. “I guess is like a 6 time a year thing .I personally don’t feel no connection or addiction to it just a little quick one two ….NOTHING LIKE REAL INTIMACY!”Cardi B performs at Cardi B and Offset Headline Hall of Fame Party 2023 at Gila River Resorts & Casinos

In a follow-up comment, TMZ reported, the Grammy winner urged that people could use pornography as a learning tool, claiming the explicit material “actually should teach men how to please a woman.”

Owens and Cardi have publicly disagreed on various political and social issues in the past, with the former TV host criticizing the rapper’s explicitly sexual songs like “WAP” as well as President Joe Biden‘s choice to do an interview with her around the 2020 election.Cardi B attends the Gaurav Gupta Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2023/2024 show as part of Paris Fashion Week

In a recent interview with Vogue, Cardi spoke about the backlash “WAP” received from some groups upon its release in 2020. “Maybe because we’re more mainstream now, the song reached more conservative people over the internet,” she told the outlet.

“I guess it made some soccer moms cry. But I cannot believe the song became so political,” added Cardi. “I am very used to hearing explicit lyrics from women. Growing up I listened to Trina, Khia, Lil Kim, Foxy Brown. Their lyrics were more explicit than mine!”
