A Local Congressional Candidate Is Frothing Over Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘WAP’

The Republican hoping to unseat Ted Lieu says he ”accidentally” heard the explicit track, and Twitter isn’t buying it

Los Angeles congressional hopeful Republican James P. Bradley was gushing with righteousness Friday after he “accidentally” heard Cardi B.’s lyrically whimsical, definitely NSFW new song “WAP,” featuring Megan Thee Stallion.

Bradley—who is trying to unseat Ted Lieu in the 33rd Congressional District—tweeted that he wanted to wash his ears out with holy water when he listened to the song, apparently in error.

“Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion are what happens when children are raised without God and without a strong father figure,” he wrote. “Their new ‘song’ The #WAP (which i heard accidentally) made me want to pour holy water in my ears and I feel sorry for future girls if this is their role model!”

Some Twitter users, however, took issue with the idea that his happening upon the catchy number had been beyond his control, while others suggested he’d be happier watching the video with the sound off.

One Twitter sleuth also pointed out that “WAP” isn’t even on the radio yet.

After taking a beating, Bradley piped up again, complaining that his right to free speech was under attack, which received its own slew of responses.

Meanwhile, many fans found the only thing offensive about “WAP” was the inclusion of Kylie Jenner in the middle of the video, and they’ve started a petition to remedy that situation. Naturally, Twitter has some interesting suggested replacements.
