Cardi B was met with criticism this week after the release of her Footwear News November cover, in which the rapper is seen holding a red sneaker and depicted as the Hindu goddess Durga.
Critics called out the star for cultural appropriation, deeming the cover inappropriate and accusing the rapper of mocking Hindu culture.
Cardi took to her Instagram Story on Wednesday morning (Nov. 11) to apologize for any offense she caused. When I did the Reebok shoot, the creatives told me I was going to represent a goddess, that she represents strength, femininity and liberation, and thats something I love and Im all about, she said.

I think she looks cute. Red is her color.
This stuff used to be OK.
I love it when lefties attack each other.
Cardi B is actually quite likable and clever when shes not ..rapping. Sadly she has chosen to go down the wrong spiritual road. As is evident in the imagery she uses.
Next thing: No one but Irish descendants can order or eat Irish food, only African descendants can order or eat African food, and only Italian descendants can do the same with Italian food.
You thought you had freedom to choose.
We’re Americans. We appropriate culture, modify it, juice it up, and make it ours. If you don’t like it you must be some kind of bigot.
Boy am I glad I didn’t see that (Newsweek) when it came out. Would’ve lost lunch -and- dinner.
The reality is that all food/culture is not traceable to one cultural source.
Maybe you should have finished your education.
I don’t really like her, but I also don’t see why she should have to apologize for that poster.
Hmmmm Maybe not so much: her and her sister went rabid over a couple of folks wearing MAGA hats and having Trump flags. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/cardi-b-her-sister-sued-over-altercation-group-displaying-trump-n1240686
Her biggest “appropriation” is that she is human.
If nobody wants to appropriate it then it is not culture, just a quirk.
She can also apologize for her straight hair.
Knowing her, I am surprised she didn’t respond with “go efff yourself, mother effers!”
Wait, isn't "research" racist now? If not, it probably will be tomorrow.
Does this mean white folks are no longer allowed to do yoga?
She should just drug them, then roll them, she has experience doing that.
All culture is appropriation, that’s how culture works. You do something, someone else sees you doing it and starts doing it as well. Now it’s a thing. Keep doing that thing and that’s culture.
Also, someone better bring a mop for that wet @ss Durga.
