Cardi B ac­cuses pa­parazzi of racism

Asian Journal - - HOLLWOOD -

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 eon­

“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.
