Cardi B Gets Unexpected Threats Over Gang-Dissing IG Post & Quickly Deletes Caption
New York rapper Cardi B might want to play things safe in 2018. The hip-hop star has reportedly received some serious heat courtesy of gang members not feeling her Instagram dig at the Crips.
According to reports, a pic of Cardi donning a blue fur outfit and captioned "I hate wearing Flue but this coat was too poppin." The direct replacement of the letter "b" with "f" has made her public enemy number one.
On Monday, Cardi put up a shot of herself rocking a blue fur coat in Minneapolis. Her caption said, "I hate wearing Flue but this coat was too poppin." It's that word "Flue" that has her in serious hot water - it's a way to knock Crips favorite color, blue, without using the actual word. Cardi's publicly stated she is a Blood, so the post - which has more than a million likes - pissed off the rival Crips, who not only left angry comments ... some flat-out threatened her. The rapper's scheduled to come to L.A. for NBA All-Star festivities in about 10 days ... and her new enemies know it. One comment said, "@iamcardib this will not be accepted #DONTCOMETOLA." (TMZ)
Subsequently, Cardi has edited the pic to make it captionless and banned commenting.
A few days ago, the Bronx native hinted at possibly hitting the road for a tour with pop star Bruno Mars.
Mhhhhhhmmm🤔🤔🤔That sounds like a great idea @brunomars ?

Last week, Cardi flexed her national appeal by starring in a new Amazon commercial primed to air during Super Bowl LII.
Cardi B is the star of Amazon’s new Super Bowl ad. In the spot, she auditions to be the new Alexa—the voice of the Amazon Echo. One user asks Cardi, “How far is Mars?” She responds, “How far is Mars? Well, how am I supposed to know? I never been there!” Later, Cardi’s asked to “play some country music.” Instead, the guy gets “Bodak Yellow.” Other celebrities in the Amazon ad include Rebel Wilson, Anthony Hopkins, and Gordon Ramsay.
