Cardi B Slams Coronavirus Xenophobia



With millions under quarantine, Cardi B has been conducting regular live sessions on Instagram and has been the entertainment we need. She even scored a hit when her virus rant was laid over a beat and made it to the top of the itunes chart. Cardi has been vocal about her time in quarantine placing all of our thoughts in her rants suggesting they spray down the streets like they did in china and pressuring the pentagon to 'let a bitch know when she can bust out with her expensive outfits and lacefronts'.

In a recent IG Live, Cardi took on the topic of xenophobia against the Chinese, as racially-charged assaults against East Asians rise due to the virus tracing back to China. Even President Donald Trump has reportedly been referring to the pandemic as the "Kung Flu" or "Chinese Virus."

"Let's stop being xenophobic. Let's stop saying fucked up jokes. Let's stop having crazy anger because I've been seeing a lot of Asians get beat up and all that shit," Cardi proclaimed during the live stream.

Globally Asian's have been spat on, beat and have their lives threaten. In New York where the virus is doubling every 3 days the New York Attorney General, Letitia announced the creation of a new hate crime hotline to field reports of xenophobia and racism. You can report here: The hotline will remain open indefinitely. Incidents can be reported to civil.rights@ag.ny.gov or 1-800-771-7755.
