Cardi B Issued Apology

The Rap artist, Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar professionally known as Cardi B released an apology for wearing the look of Goddess Durga on the cover of a footwear magazine.

The November cover of Footwear News starred Cardi B posing with 10 hands and holding a shoe to endorse her latest Reebok partnership. Some netizens criticized Cardi B for “cultural appropriation “and” disrespecting religion.

Cardi B addressed the outrage through her Instagram story and wrote, “Sorry guys, I didn’t mean to offend or disrespect anybody’s culture. I can’t change the passed but I’ll be more cautious for the future.”

The post which is now deleted from Instagram showed Cardi B paying tribute to the Goddess Durga who is the symbol of emotional strength and protection from evil.

“When I did the shoot, the creator told me you are going to represent strength, femininity, liberation and that’s something I love and I’m all about it. And I thought it was dope. If people think I’m offending their culture or their religion, I want to say it was not my intent. I do not like offending anyone’s religion. I wouldn’t like it if someone did it to my religion,” the rap star further continued in her Instagram stories.
