In a recent court case, rapper Cardi B won a court injunction ordering the creator of a series of videos to remove libelous statements. The case centered on a video posted by Latasha Kebe. Kebe has since filed an appeal, saying that the judge’s decision is too harsh. According to the judge, the videos are libelous and caused serious emotional distress to Cardi B.
According to the court documents, the YouTuber, known professionally as Tasha K, has five days to scrub all content. Until that time, she is barred from making any statements about Cardi B’s health, sexuality, or personal life. In addition, she cannot republish statements about the singer’s personal life or sexual health. In addition, Tasha K will not be able to publish statements related to Cardi B, her career, or her health again, or even republish the videos.
The case was based on Kebe’s illegal activity on YouTube. The YouTuber had violated the law by posting the videos and comments with “actual malice.” In addition to a hefty award, Kebe must also pay Cardi B’s attorneys’ fees. Kebe has vowed to appeal the verdict, claiming that he is not wealthy enough to pay this amount.
The injunction ordered Tasha to remove the defamatory videos after a federal judge agreed with Cardi. She will now have five days to remove the videos and stop using certain statements on her YouTube channel. However, Tasha may decide to appeal the ruling, which means she can post the same false statements over again. It is unclear if this case will be resolved in the coming months.
The injunction also requires Tasha K to remove any posts that contain inaccurate statements about Cardi B. The video creator initially refused the injunction, but has now agreed to comply with the injunction. Hopefully, she will now remove her defamatory content. Then, she can appeal again, and the injunction will stay in place. The injunction will allow Tasha to remove the content that slanders Cardi B.
The Court also ordered that Kebe remove specific YouTube videos and social media posts that contain statements about Cardi B. The court stated that Kebe did not fact-check her statements and that this would only affect speech that had been found to be defamatory. The court ruled that Kebe had violated the First Amendment by refusing to take down the videos. This ruling has implications for the future of Cardi B and her fans.
