Billboard has announced the nominees for the Billboard Music Awards, and one name in the top rap female category has people scratching their heads.
The category has only three nominees: Nicki Minaj, Cardi B and Bhad Bhabie aka Danielle Bregoli aka the “cash me outside” girl. Yes, you read that correctly. The “cash me outside” kid who found internet fame for being a disrespectful child is nominated for a freakin’ Billboard award. If this leaves you confused and slightly angry, you're in good company. Billboard posted the news to its Twitter page on Tuesday, and the folks turned up in response.

billboard genuinely couldn’t find another female rapper so they just threw her in— jennnnn (@shawnskook) April 17, 2018
Nominating “Catch me outside” is disrespectful to the genre. Do you know how many female rappers have put in work this past year? Dreezy, Young MA, Saweetie, Stefflondon etc...— ~✨ (@TashaTweeets) April 17, 2018
