A Pennsylvania mother, who is evidently a member of both the Bardi Gang and the Hotties, was arrested for blasting Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s summer 2020 single, “WAP” in a public space.
Stephanie Crute’s neighbors did not appreciate her playing the single loudly on her Bluetooth and called the authorities on her.
She was reportedly playing the explicit version of the song, per The Republican-Herald.
Officer arrived at the Tamaqua Bungalow Pool and Crute and her two daughters were asked to leave. Crute then allegedly refused to leave and shoved an officer who had his back to her. Officers say that she also resisted arrest and tried to throw a punch as they were attempting to cuff her.
If that wasn’t bad enough, Crute’s daughter, who is just 11, joined in the fray and attacked the officer who was attempting to cuff her mother from behind. While handcuffed, Crute kicked an officer before she was placed in the police cruiser.
One officer at the scene suffered an injury during the altercation and was taken to hospital.
Crute has been charged with felony aggravated assault, misdemeanor simple assault, resisting arrest, and summary harassment and disorderly conduct. She was released on a $25,000 bond and a hearing has been scheduled for Aug. 3.
“WAP” has been controversial since it first hit the airwaves and Cardi B has defended the graphic track and video countless times. She has also stated very adamantly that her music is not for the kids.
“Ya needs to stop with this already ! I’m not jojosiwa ! I don’t make music for kids I make music for adults.Parents are responsible on what their children listen too or see.I I’m a very sexual person but not around my child just like every other parent should be,” she tweeted in January in response to a fan.
