NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Bronx-born Cardi B bid adieu to Instagram Monday night, just one day after winning her first Grammy Award and making history as the first solo woman to win best rap album.

Apparently, that win brought out the haters, and Cardi B had enough -- so much so, she shuttered her Instagram account. "I used to want this s*** foreva ya can have it back!" read her last post before the account was non-existent.

"Sorry, this page isn't available," greets users who visit the "iamcardib" profile page. "The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed."

Her "Invasion of Privacy" album beat out albums by the late Mac Miller, Nipsey Hussle, Pusha T and Travis Scott -- upsetting those artists' fans. 

Still, she did lose out on her other four nominations, including in the record and album of the year categories.

"Oh my goodness," she said when accepting the award, struggling to gather herself. "Whoa, child."

"I'm sorry, I just, oh the nerves are so bad," she said. "Maybe I need to start smoking weed."

Cardi B told the crowd she found out she was pregnant before her album was completed. She was under pressure to finish it and do video shoots before she began showing.

"He was like you're going to do this album," she said of Offset. "We're going to have this baby and do this album."

Cardi B had one of the show's memorable performances, twerking on a piano and strutting with peacock-like plumage attached to her hips while singing "Money." Her necklace fell off mid-song but she kept on going.
