(AllHipHop News) Cardi B has hit back at critics who told her to stop getting involved in politics following her video about the government shutdown.
Cardi got political and voiced her support for federal employees who have been ordered to return to work without being paid by President Trump during the longest government shutdown in history.
Her impassioned video went viral and left viewers divided, with many heaping praise on her for speaking out about an important issue, and others criticizing for her for speaking on a topic she doesn’t know anything about.
Cardi also posted a clip of her political rant being broadcast on MSNBC and responded to her critics by proving that she has been keeping up with the news.
“Soo many people under my comments talking about I shouldn’t talk politics ,I don’t know what I’m talking about , I’m dumb !” she wrote on Instagram. “Well I know a little something something..I know 800,000 federal government workers won’t be getting paid till the shutdown is over and government assistants program are shutdown as well as in NO WELFARE , NO WIC, SECTION 8.
“I know it’s a little boring to watch the news but it won’t kill ya to visit some IG pages of people that talk about what’s going on in our community… PAY ATTENTION !!! This can go on for months and it will affect our homes and Country.”
In the original video, the 26-year-old told her followers she was “scared” for the state of her country and urged people to take action about this “serious” and “crazy” shutdown, which is now in its third week.
