Cardi B is taking time away from Twitter after receiving backlash from her impatient fans for releasing a custom doll rather than a new album.

The WAP rapper deactivated her Twitter account on Friday after admitting she was tired of trying to please so many people.

"I have so much pressure," she raged in an Instagram Live video.

"I’m working on a lot of s**t to please people... I wanna please my fans, because y’all been asking for something from me for a very long time that I can’t say, and I’m doing it for ya... and it's like 'you’re dropping a f***ing doll, we want an album!'" she ranted.

"How am I supposed to be rich? How am I supposed to build my net worth?" Cardi asked.

The doll dropped on Friday, with Cardi boasting: "BARDI GANG!! I’m dropping my own doll TODAY! Inspired by me. Created by me. Designed by me. Thank you @officialrealwomenare This means sooo much."

Revealing the idea behind her doll on Today, Cardi said: "I have a two-year-old, right, and I buy dolls every time I go to Target and they expensive (sic). Somebody came with this idea to me and I’m like, ‘That is great because I would love my daughter to play with a doll that looks like me'."

She explained: "All these other dolls look like me, I might as well make one for myself," adding: "But then I also came up with a plan, because these dolls are supposed to represent different women. So I feel like after mine drops, I want to drop a doll of different artists."
