Rapper Cardi B has come under fire after having dozens of people at her home for Thanksgiving. While COVID-19 cases rise across the nation many families have decided to keep their gatherings intimate. However, the Grammy winner has taken some heat after alerting her followers that she had over 30 people at her home for the holiday, but has since apologized.
On Sunday she posted to Twitter:

“Sorry my bad wasn’t trying to make nobody feel bad.I just had my family in my home for the first time and it felt so good & uplifted me,” wrote Cardi. “I spent soo much money getting every1 tested but it felt worth it.I wasnt trying to offend no1.”
The rap star says she went above and beyond to make sure everyone who came over were tested and she is tested on a regular basis. Cardi initially tweeted “12kids and 25 adults over the holidays. It was lit !!”
However, social media users quickly pointed out she was being irresponsible.
“i hope it was worth it for you and those 25 adults and 12 kids,” one Twitter user commented under Cardi’s post. “i truly hope it was because i can promise you it’s not worth it to everyone else who is affected by your poor choices aka the healthcare workers who you will run to when you’re sick.”
