- Cardi B took to Twitter to send out an apology after she hosted a large number of people at her house for the American holiday of Thanksgiving
- The rapper had been called out for being irresponsible after news surfaced of her party so she tweeted that she did not mean to offend anybody
- Cardi's apology had a mixed reaction from tweeps, with some saying what she did was her business and others arguing that her actions were harmful
Cardi B took to social media to send an apology to those she offended after tweets surfaced of the rapper hosting a Thanksgiving gathering with 37 people.
Cardi originally tweeted, "12kids and 25 adults over the holidays.It was lit !!", which got her called out for being irresponsible after American citizens were advised not to travel or have large parties over the Thanksgiving holiday.
The Bodak Yellow rapper came under fire for flouting Covid suggestions and tweeted her apology saying she did not mean to offend. Even apologising got her a mixed reaction as some were in favour of her enjoying her family time and others found her actions potentially harmful.
Cardi said that she got everyone tested but, as many followers pointed out, the tests are not perfectly accurate and still require isolation in case of false negatives.
Some commenters found it tone-deaf that Cardi would brag about an enormous Thanksgiving when so many people could not be with their families over the period.
Fans were divided about the rapper's apology as some replies said Cardi was entitled to do whatever she wanted and others argued that actions have consequences:
@Ali92588244: "Chica chica you boasting quite often about this and that. Having this and that! Doing this and that! Not following this and that. Disappointing to say the very least. Hope no one at your larger gathering ends up sick. That will be on your conscience. If you have one"
@dkizl608: "Hope you keep this same energy when people end up losing their life. Just because you are rich doesn't make you better, just because you can spend money on getting everyone tested. Most of us are missing our families, losing our loved ones because we care for others, unlike you"
@OliciaKing: "Stop apologizing. You have been following protocols and people would do the same if they could. Some of these people didn't spend the holidays with their family before COVID."
@AquariusThough4: "I’m so TIRED of people making people feel bad about the fact that they have money to care for their family ,and do things they would definitely do if they were in the same position! I know I would if I could. Don’t worry Cardi some of us don’t let everything offend us"
Later in the day it seemed like Cardi had had enough of the criticism and tweeted:
"People be trying tooo hard to be offended.I wonder how they survive the real world"
And the most liked response to that was from a follower who said:
@Le_Architok: "No one is trying too hard. You had 37 people over your house during a pandemic.Even if you dont think of yourself as a role model many fans will see your Thanksgiving as not taking COVID seriously. Also testing folks alone isn't going to work. It has a two week incubation period."
In previous Cardi B news, Briefly.co.za reported on the rapper dismissing her divorce filing after getting back together with husband Offset.
Close to two months after filing for divorce, Cardi B is back to the court seeking to dismiss divorce from hubby Offset. The rapper wants the court to know that she has made up her mind and she and the Migos rapper are okay, reported TMZ.
According to reports, the mother of one filed documents in Georgia to officially dismiss the divorce she initiated back in September.
This is the second time the rapper is going back to her hubby, although in the first instance she never filed for divorce.
Cardi B and Offset confirmed they had worked things out during her birthday celebration where he surprised her with expensive gifts. According to TMZ, Cardi seemingly left the door open for a potential split as she filed the dismissal without prejudice, meaning she has the right to refile the divorce at a later date.
