Cardi B accuses paparazzi of racism
Sydney: Rapper Cardi B says that some of the racist comments made by Australian paparazzi didn’t “sit well” with her.
The 26-year-old rapper arrived in Sydney on Saturday for a New Year’s holiday gig and was greeted by a swarm of photographers.
She was not in the mood for pictures or interviews and covered her head in a blanket as she and her publicist, accompanied by a male associate pushing luggage, made their way through the terminal.
The paparazzi were not happy, reports eonline.com.
“You’re in Sydney now, mate, you’re in Australia,” one of the photographers shouted at Cardi. “It’s our rules, not yours, buddy.”
Then as Cardi walked by the paparazzi with her face covered, a female photographer said to her, “No wonder your husband left ya”.
The incident took place weeks after the rapper announced that she and husband Offset had split after a year of marriage.
Cardi’s publicist confronted the woman, threatening to smack her (she didn’t) and telling her to watch her mouth.
“Then this old lady, she kept asking for a picture but I’m like literally covering my face,” Cardi B said on Instagram.
