Famous Australian singer Sia Kate Furler has had to apologise after mistakenly Identifying Nicki Minaj for Cardi B.
Briefly.co.za saw that this comes after the Chandelier hitmaker was heavily slammed for the same, with fans finding it insulting.
One of her fans went on social media asking her, in a since-deleted tweet, if she would ever collaborate with Nicki Minaj.
The singer responded on Friday, 12 June, saying she would love to collab with the female rapper, but instead referred to Cardi, even tagging her in her post.
"I love @iamcardib and although this isn't a collaboration, I would love to collab with her any day," she wrote.
She immediately received backlash for this with many asking her to delete her post as they found it offensive towards Nicki.
According to E! News, Sia also published tweets, which have again been deleted, saying she did not care about the feud between Cardi and Nicki that guys bombarded her with.
She reminded everyone that the two female rappers were dealing with important issues including fighting against systematic racism which led to George Floyd's death.
After the ordeal, the singer shared a message on Twitter to apologise, even labelling herself a buffoon.
“I totally misunderstood a tweet earlier that has resulted in me making a buffoon out of myself. Sorry, @NICKIMINAJ and @iamcardib if you hear about it. Can I just like you both?" Sia wrote.
Here are some of the comments she received over her case of mistaken identity:
