The 25-year-old rapper and former "Love & Hip Hop: New York" star spoke out on Twitter after many found the song's lyrics offensive to the LGBT community. "Girls," which debuted Friday, is a song by Rita Ora that features Cardi B, Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX.

"We never try to cause harm or had bad intentions with the song. I personally myself had experiences with other woman," Cardi B wrote.

"I though the song was a good song and i remember my experience."

"I know i have use words before that i wasn't aware that they are offensive to the LGBT community," she added. "I apologize for that. Not everybody knows the correct 'terms' to use. I learned and i stopped using it."

Singers Hayley Kiyoko and Kehlani were among those to criticize "Girls" online.

"Every so often there come certain songs with messaging that is just downright tone-deaf," Kiyoko said in an Instagram post Friday.

"Hate to be THAT guy but there were many awkward slurs, quotes, and moments that were like 'word? word,'" Kehlani tweeted. "there. were. harmful. lyrics. period."

Ora said in an interview with People published after the song's release that "Girls" was inspired by her own sexuality.

She apologized in a tweet Monday, saying the song was written to represent her "truth."

"I am sorry how I expressed myself in my song has hurt anyone. I would never intentionally cause harm to other LGBTQ+ people or anyone," the singer wrote.
