Cardi B hits back at racist comments regarding her collection of designer handbags
Rapper Cardi B has come out swinging after a social media user claimed that the star’s association with the Herms Birkin bag has devalued the luxury accessory item, long considered a symbol of status in the fashion best hermes replica in the world
“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 Herms store and they [were] also saying how we depreciate the value of a Herms Birkin bag,” the star began in a video posted to Instagram.
“I find that really interesting, right, because first thing first, right I definitely could get a bag.
“Why is it that y’all asking female rappers if they could get a bag from the Herms store. Y’all don’t do this to these white celebrities,” she said.
“So, why is it that y’all gotta be asking us?”
The rapper continued: “Another thing is that they’re saying that we depreciate the value. Like hip hop, we start trends. When y’all say that we devalue shit, no, we actually add value.
“And another thing is, why when a Black girl, why when a Hispanic girl have a bag, y’all you have to question it?” Cardi added in her Instagram video.
“There’s a lot of boss ass bitches out here. There’s a lot of boss ass bitches that own their company, there’s realtors, there’s PRs, there’s A there’s doctors, there’s dentists and the list go fucking on.”
Cardi’s hit tracks ‘Bodak Yellow,’ which includes lyrics about Louboutins, and ‘I Like It’, which references Balenciaga, both prompted massive sales spikes for the two brands, with Cardi becoming the face of Balenciaga’s autumn/winter 2020 campaign as a result.
