Cardi B has been called out for using an ableist slur in a voice note posted via social media.

It all started when the 'WAP' singer accidentally uploaded a topless photo of herself to her Instagram story on Tuesday.

It’s unclear exactly how long the photo was up, but it was soon deleted.

The rapper addressed the blunder on Twitter by recording and uploading a voice note, saying:

Lord, why the f**k you have to make me so f***ing stupid and [R-word]? Why, why, why? You know what, I’m not gonna beat myself up about it. I’m just gonna eat my breakfast and then I’m gonna go to the party.

But many people responded angrily to the voice note which included a word widely acknowledged to be an ableist slur.

Cardi B has yet to address the backlash to using the slur.

She added in her apology voice note that the leak wasn’t anybody else’s fault but her own:

It was my f**k up… s**t happens.

She then added:

I am not going to think about it… No, I won’t. It is what it is. S**t happened. F**k it, it’s not even the first time. I used to be a stripper so whatever. Ay, dios mio.

Cardi B then retweeted people who used the hashtag “Boobs Out For Cardi”.
