Like many others, Cardi B doesn’t understand the outpouring of celebrities who have come clean about their not so frequent bathing habits. 

Taking to Twitter Tuesday evening, the 28-year-old “WAP” rapper wrote, “Wassup with people saying they don’t shower? It’s giving itchy.”

Cardi’s tweet comes after celebrities like Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis and Jake Gyllenhaal have expressed that they don’t bathe themselves daily.  Last month, while a guest on Dax Shepard‘s Armchair Expert podcast, Kunis, 37, admitted, “I don’t wash my body with soap every day,” before clarifying that she does hit the hot spots like underarms, chest, and private parts. 

Kutcher, 43, added, “I wash my armpits and my crotch daily, and nothing else ever. I got a bar of Lever 2000 that delivers every time.”

Meanwhile, Gyllenhaal, 40, told Vanity Fair earlier this month, “More and more I find bathing to be less necessary, at times.”

“I do believe, because Elvis Costello is wonderful, that good manners and bad breath get you nowhere. So I do that,” Gyllenhaal continued. “But I do also think that there’s a whole world of not bathing that is also really helpful for skin maintenance, and we naturally clean ourselves.”

While it may seem that Cardi’s outnumbered when it comes to her thoughts regarding daily hygiene, she does have Dwayne Johnson on her side. 

After a fan questioned where the retired WWE wrestler, 49, stood on the topic, he responded, I’m the opposite of a ‘not washing themselves’ celeb.” He then described his daily routine, which consists of bathing three times a day, with the last time consisting of “Face wash, body wash, exfoliate and I sing (off key) in the shower.”
