Cardi B sat down with executive producer and host Angie Martinez for the season premiere of Untold Stories of Hip Hop on We TV and talked about how she was once harassed by a photographer. Cardi's #MeToo story will make your jaw hit the floor. What makes the story even more upsetting is that Cardi told the owner of the magazine the photographer was working for, and he didn't care or do anything about it.

The episode of Untold Stories of Hip Hop featuring Cardi B is set to air on Thursday. When the interview airs, viewers will also hear Cardi B talking about her time working as a dancer at a strip club, her relationship with Offset, and what it's like to be a mother. But it's hard to imagine that anything else she talks about will be as shocking as this particular story because...well, just keep reading, and you'll see.

Cardi will NEVER forget!

In the clip that We TV shared of the premiere episode of Untold Stories of Hip Hop, Cardi sits across from Angie Martinez and says with a look of disgust on her face, "I will never forget how I went to shoot for this magazine and the photographer, he was just trying to get close to me like, ‘Yah you want to get in this magazine?' and he pulled his dick out."

Angie's reaction is literally all of us.

Angie Martinez literally gasped when she heard what Cardi said, because NO WORDS! That story just leaves a person speechless. How can ish like that even happen? Cardi followed Angie's gasp by adding, "I was so f**king mad and it’s just like, this is crazy."

Oh, and guess what the magazine owner did when Cardi called out the photographer?

Nothing! He didn't do a damn thing! "And you know what’s so crazy?" Cardi told Angie. “I told the magazine owner and he just looked at me like, ‘So? And?'”

UN-FREAKIN-BELIEVABLE, right?!

Does this kind of ish still happen to Cardi?

Angie asked Cardi if that kind of harassment still happens to her at this point in her career. "Oh hell no!" Cardi replied. "I'll put you on blast on my Instagram."

It's great that Cardi no longer has to put up with that crap, but that's only because she's reached a level of success and visibility that makes it hard for people to abuse her in that way. Sadly, many women never reach that level of untouchableness. It shouldn't take having millions of followers on Instagram like Cardi has for a woman to be respected.

Watch Cardi tell the story.

It's disgusting and inexcusable that this would happen to anyone, and what's worse is that Cardi is not wrong when she says, "It happens really every day."
