Earlier this week, rapper Cardi B took to Twitter to recount an unpleasant encounter she'd recently had with NYPD officers, stating that a white officer put her in a chokehold.
"I can't believe this cop put me on a choke hole just now sh*t is crazy these NY cops don't know how to do they job F*CK 12," Cardi wrote.
TMZ caught up with Cardi's boo thing Offset (of the rap group Migos) this week. The rapper revealed that when Cardi called him and told him what happened, he thought she was joking until he saw her face.
"I was like, 'The police can't put their hands on you,'" he said.
Offset went on to explain that though two men were fighting, they weren't touched by police, but Cardi was.
"I don't know what happened but I know you can't stop the police," he said later. "The police kill people every day and get away with it."
Since then, the NYPD has claimed that they have no proof that the incident occurred, with NYPD Assistant Commissioner Peter Donald telling TMZ that the department conducted an investigation into Cardi's claims and couldn't find any surveillance footage or any other records to support her claims.
