Cardi B has called out fans on social media over claims that her favorite Hermes Birkin bags are “losing their value” due to their appeal to Black and Hispanic people.
In a video posted to her Instagram, the 28-year-old “Bodak Yellow” rapper slammed the tweets, which name-checked the star, insisting, “y’all don’t do this to these white celebrities”.
“So why is it that y’all gotta be asking us? What the f###?” she asked. “It just makes you want to brag like, ‘B**ch do you know who the f### you’re talking to?’ But no, I’m not even going to take it there.”
Cardi continued: “I find that really interesting because, first thing first, I definitely could get a bag. Actually, I got four bags today from the Hermes store.
“Another thing is that they’re saying we’re depreciating the value,” she continued. “Actually, we add value because when we mention brands in hip-hop, s### go up. And another thing is, why when a Black girl, why when a Hispanic girl (has) a bag you have to question it? ‘Oh is it fake?’ or ‘She’s a scammer’ or ‘She’s f###### a n#### for it’.
“There’s a lot of boss-a## b###### out here. There’s b###### that’s getting money out here,” insisted the “Kream” hitmaker.
