Cardi B recently showed that she won’t stand for double standards as she makes an unapologetic statement to racist comments to her owning several Birkin handbags.
The Grammy-winning rapper posted a video on her Instagram page of her visit to a Hermès store with the caption “I seen this tweet that it had me and it had other female rappers on it and they were talking about if we could get Birkins from the Hermès store and they were also saying how we depreciate the value of a Hermés Birkin bag," “I find that really interesting, right, because first thing first, I definitely could get a bag. Actually, I got four bags today from the Hermés store."
Hermés Birkin bags have for a long time been a symbol of luxury with a six figure pice tag. The rapper’s displeasure was expressed in a tweet reading: “Why is it that you all ask female rappers if they could get a bag from the Hermès store. Y'all don't do this to these white celebrities," she pointed out. "So, why is it that y'all gotta be asking us?"
"Another thing is that they're saying that we depreciate the value,"
“Actually, we add value because in hip hop, when we mention brands in hip-hop, they s**t go up."
The rapper made reference to her hit song ‘Bodak Yellow’ in which she mentioned Christian Louboutin's red-bottomed heels and recalled that Google shows that Louboutin’s sales went up by over 1000%.
She concluded her social media rant by telling women they don’t need any label. “Let me tell you something: if you're a regular girl, you don't gotta break your neck to have a Birkin. A Birkin don't make you,"
“A n***a don't give a f**k if you have a Birkin or Aldo purse."
And also complimented women on a fashionable budget. "A lot of bitches, they don't even be wearing labels and they swaggy as f**k," she said. "They mix that Fashion Nova with the Zara and the H&M amazingly. So, don't ever feel like you gotta compare yourself. Don't compare yourself to nobody on the internet. This internet s**t is fake."
“You still a bad f**king bitch," she said. "Period."
