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

“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.
