Cardi B is known for being quite a controversial character, so it may not come as a surprise to many of you to hear that she hosted Thanksgiving for thirty-seven guests… And her “apology” has caused nothing but outrage.
Has she finally taken it too far?
The infamous rapper, who was recently named as one of the most popular female rap artists of our generation, has sparked fury amongst her fans for her Thanksgiving Day antics.
Born in the Bronx, NY, Cardi (her real name is Belcalis Almanzar) came from a life of domestic violence and poverty and had to resort to stripping aged nineteen to make ends meet.
“The first time I stripped I was really embarrassed, I felt like I could hear my parents voice in my head,” she told ID magazine last year.
“After a while, I didn’t even care anymore. I was seeing the money that I feel like I would’ve never seen ever.”
In 2015, she joined the cast of the VH1 reality TV series Love & Hip Hop: New York…
But after 2 seasons, Cardi announced that she would be leaving the show to pursue a career in music – the thing she was truly passionate about.
And the rest is history.
In the space of 2 years, the singer’s life took a complete U-turn.
With an estimated net worth of around $8m, and even being hailed as one of TIME’s most influential people in the world last year, the star has truly made her mark on the industry.
Cardi first found fame when some of her posts on Vine and Instagram went viral, catapulting her to instant stardom.
Her stage name, Cardi B, came from her family nickname… Bacardi. Quite fitting, don’t you agree?
With her explicit lyrics and brazen behavior both on and off stage, Cardi B has certainly made a name for herself in the world of music.
Her crude lyrics and overwhelming stage presence certainly haven’t stopped her from succeeding; they’ve done quite the opposite, in fact.
Throughout her career, she has bagged herself a Grammy, 7 Billboard Awards, 3 MTV Music Awards, and 2 Guinness World Record Awards. Not too shabby.
Flaunt it, right?
Part of Cardi’s overall image is her sassy attitude.
She’s never afraid to speak her mind and is always open to experimenting with new and outlandish looks.
And I feel many parents will agree with me when I say that Cardi’s Instagram page is not a place for children.
Her outspoken nature on social media has landed the rapper in quite a lot of trouble in the past, however.
For example, who remembers the time when Cardi decided she was going to post a picture of her daughter which had been edited to show what the child would look like as an adult?
It seems as though one fan had their own theories, suggesting Kulture looked more like a combination of Offset and Cardi’s sister Carolina, AKA Hennessy.
“I think cause Hennessy got c****y eyes like Offset and so do KK. It’s the only think [sic] I could think off [sic].”
That’s when everything took a dramatic turn and Cardi was on the receiving end of intense backlash to which she was forced to respond.
“I didn’t know that c****y eyes was a slur like wtfff I DONT KNOW F–-IN EVERYTHING !!” she wrote in a since-deleted tweet, using the slur again. “We don’t even use that as a [sic] insult and I didn’t use it as a [sic] insult.”
But if you do say something offensive, the usual response is to apologize and then move on.
Why get enraged when you’re the one that did something wrong?
And today, she has more of it to deal with after fans responded angrily to her Thanksgiving Day Tweet.
“12kids and 25 adults over the holidays. It was lit !!”
One fan responded to her tweet writing what many people were also thinking:
“37 people in one house during a global pandemic isn’t something to be proud of.”
“Sorry my bad wasn’t trying to make nobody feel bad. I just had my family in my home for the first time and it felt so good & uplifted me .I spent soo much money getting every1 tested but it felt worth it.I wasnt trying to offend no1.”
“ME specially and everyone that works around me get tested literally 4 times a week.Im In the middle of work and Everytime we clock in we MUST GET TESTED !”
“People be trying too hard to be offended.I wonder how they survive the real world.”
