After fans spotted a transphobic meme on Cardi B's Facebook account, the 'I Like It' star claimed she was not responsible for sharing it.

Cardi B's fans really noticed a transphobic meme on her official Facebook page, which read "I hope nobody see this Tranny leave my house [sic]".

The 'Bodak Yellow' singer has since denied responsibility for sharing the meme, blaming a former team member who also had access to the account.

Cardi B - whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar - went on to claim it was a member of her team, who no longer works with her, that shared the meme; "For the past year and a half a FORMER team member has been the only one with access to the account."

Laverne Cox, the first openly transgender person to be nominated for an Emmy Award in the acting category, for her role in Orange is the New Black, responded to Cardi B, saying "as long as its socially acceptable to make jokes about trans people, to make and share memes disparaging & demeaning trans folks, trans folks will continue to be murdered &denied civil rights.
