Fans Are Slamming Cardi B for Showing Off Her Huge Birthday Bash Amid the Coronavirus Pandemic
Cardi B just celebrated turning 28 with her friends, family, and her soon-to-be ex-husband, Offset. While the rapper showed off her lavish party in Las Vegas via Instagram, fans aren’t happy with the huge bash, as it didn’t look as if anyone was practicing social distancing protocol as is advised for the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Here’s what everyone’s noticing.
Cardi B celebrated her 28th birthday in Las Vegas
Cardi B loves a good party, and it seems she was more excited than ever to ring in her 28th year with good company. TMZ notes the night started in Vegas, and there was plenty of dancing and alcohol involved. Then, the night moved to a private residence — and Cardi eventually saw her amazing gift from Offset. She received a Rolls-Royce featuring their daughter’s name embroidered on the seats.
Cardi also posted all about her huge birthday bash to her Instagram Story. Her friends first filled a room with gold balloons, decorations, and photos — and from there, they all hit the town. Toward the end of Cardi’s Story, dollar bills were flowing as the party continued on well into the morning.
It seems Cardi had plenty of famous faces at the party, too. “The Weeknd had his own table and Teyana Taylor was seated there with him,” a source told E! News. “Kylie Jenner arrived with a small group of friends and was incredibly friendly and social with all the party guests who were excited to meet her.”
Fans are slamming the rapper for the photos and videos she posted to Instagram
While Cardi and her friends looked like they all had a blast, fans are unimpressed with the lack of social distancing among them. And it didn’t take long for the star’s fan base to call her out via Instagram.
On Oct. 11, Cardi posted a photo of herself to Instagram showing her on the floor surrounded by her friends. While a few party guests looked like they were trying to help her, everyone else had their phones out. And only one person in the crowd appeared to wear a mask.
“Bruh thats so irresponsible, y’all forget we are in a worldwide pandemic,” one fan commented on the photo.
“So celebrities don’t think social distancing applies to them too? Got it,” another wrote.
“Happy birthday and whatever but what about the pandemic?” another wrote.
“Masks? Coronavirus? Is that not a thing anymore for the ultra wealthy/ celebrity crew?” yet another fan commented on the post.
We’re not sure if everyone at the party was tested for coronavirus prior to attending the party. But even so, many don’t think Cardi is setting a good example for her young fans or child.
Cardi B is also turning heads for kissing Offset at her birthday bash
Coronavirus aside, Cardi also turned heads at her party for a different reason. It seems she and Offset shared a steamy kiss despite the fact that they’re in the middle of a divorce. Between the kiss and the Rolls-Royce, many are wondering if this means Cardi and Offset have reconciled.
It seems nothing’s official just yet. And we can’t forget why Cardi said she’s divorcing Offset in the first place. Throughout the entirety of their relationship, Offset seemed to consistently cheat on Cardi — and she eventually had enough.
“I didn’t wait until he cheated on me again … I didn’t wait [for] another controversy with him being involved,” she said. “I decided to leave. If I wanted to stay, I could have stayed. I decided to leave.”
We’ll have to wait and see what happens between Cardi and Offset. For now, it looks like Cardi has a lot of explaining to do when it comes to why she had a huge birthday extravaganza mid-pandemic.
