Cardi B Gets Hit With Thanksgiving Backlash After Throwing COVID Party

The Thanksgiving family drama ain’t over yet, folks.

In the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, medical officials appealed to Americans to stay home for the holidays to combat a potential increase in COVID cases that would undoubtedly arrive during gatherings. Over the weekend, the White House coronavirus task force coordinator, Dr. Deborah Birx, told Americans that they should assume they are infected with the coronavirus if they did opt to travel and attended large gatherings for Thanksgiving.

Over the weekend after news spread that rapper Cardi B hosted a large Thanksgiving celebration amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

After she shared a post to her social pages over the weekend, Cardi B is getting a bitter taste of Thanksgiving backlash.

Cardi B responded to backlash Sunday over her Thanksgiving celebrations where she appeared to host a large gathering amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The 28-year-old rapper tweeted, “12 kids and 25 adults over the holidays. It was lit !!”

It didn’t take long for the post to spark commentary from followers aware of public health officials’ pleas to urge Americans to limit their Thanksgiving celebrations. Ahead of the Thanksgiving celebrations officials asked people to keep dinners and gatherings to a limited number of people out of anticipation of coronavirus case increases.

As ever, Cardi was quick in her response and at first, seemed to apologize claiming that she had not meant to offend anyone with her holiday celebration.

“Sorry my bad wasn’t trying to make nobody feel bad.I just had my family in my home for the first time and it felt so good & uplifted me. I spent soo much money getting every1 tested but it felt worth it. I wasn’t trying to offend no1,” she tweeted Sunday afternoon.

Late last week Cardi posted photos of her Thanksgiving Day with her 2-year-old daughter Kulture.

She also replied to a fan who ridiculed her use of COVID testing to support a gathering.

“ME specially and everyone that works around me get tested literally 4 times a week. Im In the middle of work and every time we clock in we MUST GET TESTED !” she Cardi replied.

It didn’t take long for Cardi to continue her responses to critical fans

“People be trying tooo hard to be offended,” she tweeted to one post. “I wonder how they survive the real world.”

Like it or not, tested or not, the reality of the current pandemic situation is that people are still contracting the virus.

“We know people may have made mistakes over the Thanksgiving time period,” Birx warned in an interview with Face the Nation. “If you’re young and you gathered, you need to be tested about five to 10 days later. But you need to assume that you’re infected and not go near your grandparents and aunts and others without a mask.”

“We’re really asking families to even mask indoors if they chose to gather during Thanksgiving and others went across the country or even into the next state,” she added.

You may have heard of Olivia Rodrigo, the 17-year-old Disney Channel actress who has recently take the music industry by storm with the success of her debut single, “Driver’s License”.

Well you wouldn’t be the only one who is thinking about her. Recently, Cardi B tweeted about the viral song, namely lamenting over the fact that she does not have her driver’s license.

On Tuesday, Cardi tweeted out her frustration about the fact that she has to rely on other people to fulfill her late-night McDonald’s cravings.

“Just like that girl [who] wrote a song about getting her driver’s license, Imma write a song about the struggle of not having a drivers license,” she wrote. “I really wanted my McDonald’s at 4am last night instead of today, but I couldn’t so I felt asleep hungry.” More relatable words have never been spoken, tbh.

Shocked that the Bronx-born rapper even knows who she is, Rodrigo tweeted a response back at Cardi.

“Girl i will pick u up and take u wherever u wanna go,” Rodrigo wrote back.

Cardi, for her part, seemed excited to find a driver to take her on late-night McDonald’s runs. She wrote back: “Yaaayyy!!! Let’s go to McDonald’s and get happy meals!”

Cue the influx of Twitter stans demanding a future Olivia Rodrigo x Cardi B collab.

Olivia Rodrigo is just as surprised about “Driver’s License” success as everyone else is.

Rodrigo recently told Billboard that this past week, when “Driver’s License” shot to No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart has been “the weirdest week of my whole life.”

Rodrigo was a relatively unknown Disney Channel star on Disney+’s “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” before this song hit the airwaves. Now she’s a pop sensation.

“So many people that I look up to have reached out and expressed their love for the song, which is absolutely surreal,” she told Billboard. But I truly am just the same 17-year-old girl, doing statistics homework in my bedroom.”

While many people are wondering what Rodrigo’s background is, she is proudly half-Filipino.

While some people have mistakenly called Olivia Rodriguez Latina, she is actually of Filipino descent, just like previous “High School Musical” star, Vanessa Hudgens. Just like Latin American countries, the Philippines were colonized by Spain–that is why so many people of Filipino descent have Spanish-sounding last names.

Rodrigo has talked at length about her cultural and familial roots. “My great-grandfather immigrated here from the Philippines when he was just a teenager. He’s my grandma’s dad, and my grandpa is also Filipino as well,” Rodrigo revealed in an interview with the Center for Asian American Media back in 2018.

“My dad grew up in a house where they were always making Filipino food, his grandpa always spoke Tagalog. All of those traditions have trickled down to our generation.”
