In a video shared by Twitter (X) user KameronBennett, Cardi B said women needed to be realistic and not let social media cloud their judgement:

"If you and your man make the same amount of money but only he pays all the bills, how are you going to save up for a house or a business? Because he isn't going to afford it. Some things need you guys to work together.
"People are out of touch with reality. Your parents worked and helped each other; you're acting like that never happened. If we want to grow, let's go half and half; it's not a one-way street. I'm old school."
