American rapper, Cardi B, has caused a fuss on social media after deciding to step out in a head-to-toe Muslim-like outfit while attending the annual Paris Fashion Week. People were not at all impressed.
The mother of one was spotted strutting in the streets of France dressed in a green, floral ensemble that covered every part of her body.
The beauty even posted a video of her escapades on Instagram that was met with utter confusion and criticism from people around the world.
What had people with their knickers in a bunch was how Cardi fearlessly and daringly walked in an outfit that has been banned among Muslim women living in France.
“PARIS FASHION WEEK, IM HERE,” Cardi tweeted as she attached the controversial photo.
A few irked netizens asked how Muslim women were dubbed as terrorists for wearing such outfits while Cardi could freely walk draped in the same clothes.
In 2011, France made it illegal for women to walk out in public wearing clothing attire that concealed their face.
“The problem of the burka is not a religious problem, it is a problem of liberty and women's dignity,” former French president Nicolas Sarkozy said.
Others wondered whether the rapper was serving a middle finger to the French government or simply mocking women who were barred from wearing the Islamic clothes.
A huge section of social media deemed the actions as pretentious on the part of the government as any Muslim woman caught in such attire can be slapped with a fine.
"Soooo is anyone in France going to raise security concerns about Cardi B fully covering herself, or does that argument only apply to Muslim women in niqab?” An irate tweep posed.
