Cardi B has apologized after receiving backlash this week for promoting a virtual fundraiser for Armenia. The post was shared amid Armenia's escalating conflict with Azerbaijan over the Nagorno-Karabakh territory.
According to CBS News, dozens of people have reportedly died and hundreds have been injured due to the conflict. After Cardi posted about the fundraiser, the hashtag #cardibsupportsterrorism started trending. Cardi B apologized in an audio tweet, saying that she didn't do her research before posting the flyer.
The rapper explained that she and Offset had met with a consultant on Monday (October 5th) to discuss selling one of their properties. During the meeting, the consultant allegedly asked Cardi if she would be willing to share a post “for a good cause.”
