AceShowbiz - Rap sensation Cardi B has urged critics of her sexy looks to back off after posing in lingerie-inspired outfits online.
The "I Like It" hitmaker showed her estranged husband Offset what he's missing with a series of racy posts on Instagram over the weekend (January 25-27) as she prepared for her headlining performance at Las Vegas' AVN Awards, known as the Oscars of porn.
The former stripper, who has never shied away from her past as an exotic dancer, began titillating fans by posting a shot of herself wearing a saucy red PVC bra and panties set with matching suspenders.
She reportedly picked out the ensemble for a private pre-ceremony show for female adult entertainers, held at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino club Vinyl on Friday, when she captioned the image, "you know that Cardi a freak (sic)...!".
Cardi followed it up on Saturday with another pair of steamy PVC outfits, which she modelled for followers on her Instagram Stories timeline, wondering whether she should rock the blue lingerie or teal buckle bodysuit ensemble onstage.
"Blue or Green? AVN awards inspire me tonight !" she wrote beside video footage showing Cardi seductively gyrating her hips in both garments and pretending to touch herself.
The hip-hop star, who ended up using both looks for the performance, was clearly feeling good in the sexy clothing, as she posed in the blue bra, corset, panties, and suspenders set in an elevator.
"AVN awards..... I'm a little pornstar (sic) today," the cheeky rapper teased. "well I'm a pornstar whenever you want me to be".
Fans applauded each of Cardi's raunchy photos, but it appears some followers didn't appreciate her body confidence, and called the mother-of-one out for what they claimed to be inappropriate behaviour.
"Have some shame, there are kids on Instagram and even if you don't follow them, your posts come up!! Absolutely shameful! Both and (sic) embarrassment and degrading to women," posted one unimpressed user, while others claimed she shouldn't be flaunting her sexual side on social media now she's a mum.
"You have a child. You are called MAMA now and you behave trashy. Seriously, I believe you can NEVER buy class," read one comment, as another follower wrote, "Your a disgrace there is children that look up to you (sic) and you carry on like this shocking @iamcardib".
However, the rapper has since hit back at the criticism and called out her haters for slut-shaming her simply for flaunting her sexual side: "Can I be sexy one time and not get called a slut ?" she remarked alongside another photo from her night at the AVN Awards. "Sheeesh!".
