And while Cardi (born Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar Cephus), 29, was not with her sister that afternoon, she did tweet out a video of the altercation, and claimed Hennessy and her friends were being targeted because they’re Afro-Hispanic and gay. 

The clip showed two men and a woman arguing with Hennessy and her gal pals over her parked vehicle at Smith Point Beach.

‘Nooooo that big pink man was harassing my sister girlfriend to move her car for no reason and then my sister came there had a back and forth and they stood quit when she Wip that phone out,’ Cardi, 29, wrote in a tweet from September 6, 2020.

‘They was harassing 2 Women ! Ya going to catch the right f**kin one !’

There were plenty of expletive insults exchanged during the loud confrontation.

Along with their claim of defamation, the three other beachgoers maintained Hennessy (born Hennessy Carolina Almanzar), 26, spit on one of them and engaged in insulting and threatening habits. 

But, in the end, the judge in the case ruled that these were all just general insults that did not rise to the level of defamation.     

As for the spitting accusation, which was their reasoning for the assault and battery claim, the judge said there was no proof that Hennessy intended to target the plaintiffs.
