Cardi B Responds to Video Of Her Saying She Robbed And Drugged Men
Cardi B releases a statement defending herself after an Instagram video resurfaced where she admits that she drugged and robbed men when she worked as a stripper.
In the three-year-old video that was shared on social media over the weekend, Cardi was emotional when she explained the lengths she went to in order to survive in the music industry, and afford studio time.
The rapper originally posted the video in response to someone who said she did not deserve her success. She said she would drug and rob men who wanted to have sex with her during her time as a stripper in New York.
The video inspired the hashtag #SurvivingCardiB, a reference to the Lifetime documentary "Surviving R. Kelly,".
Trolls on social media called for Cardi to be "canceled," while others said she should go to jail.
Cardi B took to Instagram to address the controversy in a lengthy post.
Cardi claimed that the men that she spoke about in the video were men that she had dated and who were "conscious, willing and aware."
She concluded her statement by saying: "I have a past that I can’t change we all do."
