But true to Cardi style, the rapper also warned people that the virus, which started in Wuhan China, will impact their weaves and wigs.
“I’m a little scared. S*** got me panicking,” Cardi says in the video. “A lot of s*** comes from motherf***ing China. If you’re wondering why your weave or your fashion packages haven’t arrived,” blame it on the coronavirus, she said. “I’m telling you, s*** is getting real.”
Her IG followers responded to the video.
“Everyone jokes around until it hits home, and that ish has landed. It is very much here n moving around fast. Nothing dumb w being safe or preparing urself. Do u sis. I hope everyone else is too that follows u,” wrote iamjessenia.
“That’s why we gotta vote BLUE in November, to get someone in office who take stuff serious. Trump’s stupid a** actually believes it’s a “hoax,” wrote itschriscrocker.
