Even though it's an amazing song, there are some people not happy with Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's WAP. Over the weekend, there was a petition set up to try and remove Kylie Jenner from the video{ =nofollow}. And there's been a load of men - and some women - calling the sexually explicit lyrics vulgar and disgusting. (Would they complain if it was a male rapper, though? Probably not.)

Another person who is unhappy with the video is Tiger King's Carole Baskin, who has called out the use of big cats in the video - even though the animals were filmed using green screen, meaning they weren't filmed with Megan and Cardi. But Cardi is having none of it.

'I’m not gonna engage with Carole Baskin on that', the rapper told iD. 'Like, that’s just ridiculous you know? Oh, Lord. Like, girl you killed your goddamn husband.' Carole, for what it's worth, denies any involvement in her husband's disappearance and has never been charged.

'My guess is that most people won’t even see the Photoshopped cats in the scenes because the rest of it is so lurid,' Baskin said in a statement to Billboard{ =nofollow}. 'I was happy to see that it does appear to all be Photoshopped. It didn’t look like the cats were really in the rooms with the singers. In fact, probably most of the rooms were Photoshopped in via green screen.'

Carole also expressed her concern that the filmmakers might have worked with 'one of the big cat pimps,' whom she accused of 'beating, shocking and starving cats to make them stand on cue in front of a green screen in a studio.'

However, the activist's main concern is that the video might encourage 'ignorant' people, who have the money, to buy their own wild animals.

'After tigers are too old for pay to play sessions by people like Joe Exotic, Bhagavan Antle, [Mark] McCarthy, Mario Tabraue and others, they become a liability instead of an asset,' she said, warning that most of the cats are killed, though some might be given away to private collectors so that they could 'have a tiger to show off.' 'That never works out and the cats either die or end up dumped in sanctuaries or worse yet, breeding mills. Either way, it’s always abusive to the cat.'
