Cardi B slams Republicans partying to "WAP"

If you’re going to listen to Cardi B, do it responsibly, or else get called out by the rapper herself. 

On Tuesday, Cardi criticized a video that featured Trump supporters partying on a boat while listening to her new hit record “WAP,” a collaboration with fellow rapper Megan Thee Stallion.

The problem? Not one party goer was following the CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In the clip, partiers are seen without face masks and dancing less than six feet apart, both of which are recommended by the agency. 

“Wasn’t republican conservative throwing a little fit bout this song?” Cardi tweeted along with the side-eye emoji in reference to conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro‘s breakdown of the song’s explicit lyrics. 

“Anyways this makes my a** itchy,” she continued. “I’m callin the fbi on this festivity. They are not quarantining.”

Although Cardi doesn’t seem excited about these party-goers, she does seem excited about all of the records that “WAP” has broken since it was released on August 7.
