Sometimes in movies and music videos, celebrities appear on the screen for a brief moment. These are called cameo appearances.
One such arrival in Cardi B’s and Megan Thee Stallion’s newest song, WAP, got many disapproving comments and feedback from their fans.
There were many appearances of celebrities in the music video. Some of them were Sukihana, Rosalía, Mulatto, Normani, and Rubi Rose, including Kylie Jenner.
The video showcased a fancy manor with statues and animals, also staring at different stars. But, giving a cameo to Kylie Jenner got backfired by people. She had also got criticisms for clubbing amidst the Black Lives protest regarding George Floyd’s death.

This emergence was set in the middle of the music video about 1.5 minutes into it. When Kylie walked down the hall, wearing a leopard-like printed dress caught almost all the viewers off-guard. She walked down, staring at the camera, and entered into a room. The whole scene lasted less than 20 seconds, but the fans highly detested it. The video was premiered last Friday.

I’m going to pretend Kylie wasn’t in it and you should too. Other than that, bravo queens #WAP

The fact that the wap video had so much black excellence just Kylie Jenner to be there doing this…. 💀 pic.twitter.com/KGdbJ7hBpq

Normani did ALL this and Kylie walked down the hall and opened a door.
If that’s not a perfect visual indication of Black women having to do the most and white women do the bare minimum to get somewhere, I don’t know what is. https://t.co/ZGvbfzQeLs

Kylie Jenner was just unnecessary on the Cardi B/ Megan Thee Stallion music video and that’s the nicest way I can put it pic.twitter.com/kcX9lRb1Ni

Since the video was a major of black ladies, some people said that this cameo, too, should have been given to another black person itself. Some others said Kylie’s show up was needless.
