Cardi B … The Cultural Appropriator?




Cardi B has come under fire for her recent Reebok campaign and fans are now asking ‘is the rapper a cultural appropriator?’

The ad is a striking one. Cardi is featured channeling the Hindu goddess Durga while simultaneously showcasing her new, bright red sneakers. The “WAP” rapper initially posted the image on her Instagram page…

But, deleted it a short time later as fans took issue with the fact that Cardi isn’t Hindu and what she was doing was NOT paying homage.

Fans flooded Twitter with messages calling out Cardi for cultural appropriation and for being downright disrespectful.

Eventually, Cardi took to Instagram and apologized stating:

“When I did the Reebok shoot the creative told me I’d be a goddess that represents strength, femininity, and liberation, and that is something I love, that I’m all about and I thought it was dope. If people think I offended their culture or religion I want to say I’m sorry – that was not my intent. I would not want anyone to disrespect my religion, with people dressed as the Virgin Mary or Jesus, as long as they do it in a beautiful and graceful way. Maybe I should’ve done my research. I’m sorry. I can’t change the past but I’m gonna do more research for the future.”

Do you accept Cardi’s apology?
