Cardi B Wins MAGA Defamation Lawsuit

Last year rapper Cardi B and her sister Hennesy were sued for defamation of character after Cardi Tweeted video of Hennesy getting into an altercation with three Donald Trump supporters on a beach in the Hamptons where Hennesy called the MAGAs racists [click here if you missed that]. 

The case has been dismissed... 

From TMZ
A New York trial judge just dismissed the case, and it's a solid win for Cardi and Hennessy. As for defamation, the judge said these were all just general insults that do not rise to the level of defamation.
As for spitting -- the basis for the assault and battery claim -- the judge said even if spit shot out from Hennessy's mouth -- there was no proof whatsoever she intended to target any of the plaintiffs. In fact, the judge noted the plaintiffs never even alleged that was Hennessy's intent.
