“WAP” is a controversial song by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. The song conveys a message of feminism but from a fierce, strong perspective, wanting to be the leader even in bed. Some believe that the song is an encouragement for women of color to express themselves, but at the same time, it is also criticized because the language and images shown are considered to promote pornography and are offensive.
Putting “WAP” on stage caused CBS and the organizers of the Grammy Awards to also be criticized by some social activists and the national center for American sexual exploitation.
