Earlier this month, according to Billboard, a federal judge ordered YouTube personality Tasha K to remove 21 defamatory videos about Cardi B by the end of that week. She has also been banned from ever posting content referring to the Bodak Yellow rapper on a range of specific subjects. As of last week, Tasha K has not followed the judge’s instruction to remove the content specified from her site.
Dennis Byron, the editor-in-chief of Hip-Hop Enquirer posted on his Twitter account that Tasha K has defied the order given to her by the judge.

XXL reported that Bryon went on his Instagram Live to discuss the matter even further.
This so-called permanent injunction by Judge William M. Ray II comes after Cardi B was awarded a $4 million defamation verdict against Tasha K.
Cardi B requested the arrangement last month, stating that Tasha K posed a “constant ongoing threat” to repost her “disgusting lies.” Originally, Tasha had opposed the order. A hearing was going to take place Friday before she agreed to the restrictions imposed on Monday.
Cardi B filed a lawsuit against Tasha K in 2019 due to a “malicious campaign” to harm Cardi’s reputation.
Earlier this year, the jury overwhelmingly sided with the rapper, holding Tasha liable for defamation, invasion of privacy, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. They awarded more than $2.5 million in damages and another $1.3 million in legal fees incurred by the rapper.
Tasha K is appealing the decision.
