So any honorable job wasn’t an option? Where was she living, Somalia?
Grammy Award-winning artist Cardi B says the men she spoke about in the video were ones she dated and they were “conscious, willing and aware.” So she drugged and then robbed them, but they were still “conscious, willing and aware?”
NOTE: Because of the graphic nature and language of the video, I am not adding it to this article.
The closest person I can associate to this is Bill Cosby, and although he allegedly raped women, Cardi B doesn’t make that assertion. What she did was along the same lines without the sexual assault.
I think her victims want what she took back and the authorities probably want to talk to her or at the very least they need to be brought in. It’s another wonderful #MeToo hypocrisy. If a woman assaults a man and actually steals from him, guess that is perfectly acceptable.
It is neat how the media can spin this into almost a positive thing when a woman does it. Especially after how R. Kelly, Bill Cosby, and Harvey Weinstein are being destroyed in the media, and rightfully so, what they did is inexcusable and criminal. Please explain to me how what she did is less so?
Cardi B is trying to clarify herself after a video resurfaced online where the rapper said she drugged and robbed men for money.
The Grammy winner posted a statement Tuesday on Instagram that she had “very limited options” and needed to do anything to “survive.” The former stripper says she wasn’t trying to glorify her actions, but felt it was necessary at the time.
Cardi B is facing backlash from the Instagram Live video she says is from three years ago. Some on social media have criticized the rapper for her admission with the hashtag #SurvivingCardiB in reference to the R. Kelly documentary “Surviving R. Kelly.”

If a male made the same statement, his career would end immediately, and the Grammy award would be rescinded. Ask Bill Cosby.
I’m assuming she waited for the statute of limitations to wear out so she wouldn’t be in danger of being charged with a felony or two. It saddens that many of her fans are very young people, who seem to think her behavior is “cool.”
A few years when I was young, my dad’s church went under and times got hard financially. My parent’s didn’t resort to drugging and robbing people. My dad did odd jobs like cutting firewood and hauling hay while my mom went and worked at what amounted to a sweatshop for minimum wage that was only around $3 an hour at the time. I would go with my dad and help too.
I also worked in the fields picking cucumbers and tomatoes as my mom wanted to help build character. Cardi B is confusing laziness with “survival,” and wants to be praised for it by the majority of her fans. It’s much easier to drug and rob than to do hard work for little pay.
Once again, it’s no surprise to see yet another gender-based double standard. When a man drugs and robs a woman it’s a serious crime, but when a woman does the same thing to a man it’s simply an effective survival tactic. God help us!
