Sticks and Stones: Rap Song Lands Victoria's Secret Angels in Hot Water

Several Victoria’s Secret models are drawing heat for a video that surfaced online Several Victoria’s Secret models are drawing heat for a video that surfaced online

The bit that provoked the public outrage was one verse of the song, "I don't wanna choose and I'm quick to cut a ni**er off", or rather the fact that the models uttered aloud the racial slur it contains.

From the video, it's unclear exactly which models said the word and which didn't.

In fact, as many people highlighted in the comments of PopCrave's original post, it looks like model Devon Windsor did just that, keeping her mouth closed during the line that numerous other women allegedly said out loud.

While there's nothing the offending Angels can say to undo their actions, it's important that the white women in the room who did say the n-word are held accountable for their actions.

That began to gain traction on Twitter, with some claiming that Cardi used a ghostwriter for the song, and others noting that Kodak Black (real name: Dieuson Octave) is listed as a songwriter on the credits.

"Nah. That n-word was too loud and clear for there only to be one black girl in this room", wrote the writer Mikelle Street.

Another person agreed and tweeted: 'Oh!

"So many people try to discredit me", she said in her response. They all gotta go'.

Requests for comment to Victoria's Secret, Karlie Kloss and Cardi B by The Huffington Post were not returned.

Model Devon Windsor can also be seen dancing along and rapping, but she clearly keeps quiet when the lyric featuring the N-word pops up.

It comes after Gigi Hadid announced she was not going to walk in the show in Shanghai earlier this month after she came under fire in China over a controversial video showing her squinting her eyes to imitate Buddha.
