Cardi B has now responded to Budden’s apology, seemingly settling their spat. “I got love for you too Joe, but you’ve been changing your tone on me real heavy the last 3 years whether music or personal,” she wrote. “Like when I was going through real sh*t with my marriage in December, you went on your platform and tried to make that about somebody else and what they got going on. I know criticism comes with the territory, but sometimes the narrative y’all decide to run with is soooo toxic. It’s all love though, see you soon.”

Based on Cardi’s post, it appears she might be willing to put the past behind her, though it’s unclear if Budden will change his approach.
