Cardi B has apologized after revealing on social media that she hosted a Thanksgiving dinner with 37 people, despite Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Thanksgiving guidelines, which advised to only congregate with people from your same household.
The “WAP” rapper posted a series of tweets on Sunday, with one in particular showcasing just how many guests she had in her home last week: “12 kids and 25 adults over the holidays. It was lit !!”
In other posts on social media, she could be seen sporting a light orange sweatsuit while holding a plate of food and dancing with her guests.
Cardi B’s followers started tweeting back at the star, some in disbelief.
Twitter user @gbacolor1981 posted: “Sis I love you but anyone behaving this way during a pandemic deserves to be dragged.”
Another Twitter user likened the hip-hop star’s behavior to Kim Kardashian’s in terms of celebrity “privilege,” writing: “This is like when Kim Kardashian announced that she had a party for her 40th. You can’t tell people to do their part and then use your privilege to get around it. That’s why people tell celebrities to stay in their lane. an expression I hate by the way!”
The “I Like It” rapper later backtracked on Twitter by posting an apology to her followers, saying everyone at the gathering had been tested.
Sorry my bad wasn’t trying to make nobody feel bad.I just had my family in my home for the first time and it felt so good & uplifted me .I spent soo much money getting every1 tested but it felt worth it.I wasnt trying to offend no1. https://t.co/gjGo1JAvnY
