The sisters were sued by Trump supporters after being labeled “racist” and later, Cardi requested for the lawsuit to be dismissed.
Last year, Cardi, her sister Hennessy Carolina, and Hennessy’s girlfriend Michelle Diaz were all sued by Peter Caliendo, Pauline Caliendo, and Manuel Alarcon over the verbal altercation.

It was back in the Fall when the trio had a run-in with Hennessy while in the Hamptons. The three accusers claim that they were just enjoying themselves at the beach when Hennessy approached and shouted at them. One of them was wearing a MAGA hat and in a video that went viral, the group was called “racist MAGA supporters.”
Cardi wasn’t actually present for the encounter but Hennessy sent Cardi the clip of the incident and the rapper tweeted it to her millions of social media followers. The group has filed recent documents asking for the court to toss out Cardi’s request to dismiss the suit.
Radar Online reports, “To make matters worse, they claim the video Cardi posted was edited to make them look racist. Hennessy denied the claims saying they told her to go back to her country. She accused them of targeting her because they heard her speaking Spanish.” Cardi and her team asked the court to dismiss the lawsuit because their comments should not be seen as defamatory if they are stating their opinions. The group disagreed.
They also mentioned Cardi’s “extreme social behaviors, and words, in videos on the internet.” Check out the video of the incident below.[via]
