Fans are not happy with Kylie Jenner's lengthy cameo in Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's music video for "WAP," which was released on Friday. 

The video is set in a whimsical mansion filled with wild animals and famous artists — like Normani, Rosalía, Mulatto, Sukihana, and Rubi Rose — roaming through its halls. 

Around one minute and 45 seconds into the video, Jenner, clad in an animal-print outfit, stares down the camera while walking down an ornate hallway.

The makeup mogul, who is white, has previously been accused of appropriating Black culture and was criticized for clubbing during the George Floyd protests, so her appearance in the video caught fans off guard. 

Some people called the cameo "unnecessary," while others said that the spot should've gone to a Black artist since the video highlighted "Black female excellence."

 

 

Other people threw out names of women they'd prefer to see over Jenner in the "WAP" video.

 

In addition to the reality star's name, "Betty White" began trending on Twitter after people nominated the 98-year-old actress as a worthy replacement for Jenner in the video. 

Cardi B explained the rationale behind her and Megan Thee Stallion's decisions to include celebrity cameos in the "WAP" video on Friday's episode of Apple Music's "New Music Daily." 

"I wanted a lot of different females, not just female rappers. Y'all going to see it on the music video as well, from models to influencers and everything. And I really wanted the video to be very sexy, very clean, very nice, very cut," the "Bodak Yellow" rapper said. 

She continued, "I'm like, 'These are the girls that I personally like. That I like their music. That I really feel they are going to go mainstream, to me.'"
