New York rappers Cardi B and Safaree are speaking out about the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak. Never afraid to speak their minds, the Love & Hip Hop alumni took to social media to weigh in on its effect on the entertainment industry.
Cardi B hit up Instagram to tell fans, "I'm a little scared." The "Bodak Yellow" rapper doesn't understand how the virus has spread from Wuhan, China, where it originated, to countries worldwide.
"Let me tell y’all mother******s something. I don’t know what the f*** this coronavirus is about. I don’t understand how it went from China and now it’s on motherf***ing tour. Let me tell y’all something, I’m not even gonna front, a b**** is scared. I’m a little scared,” Cardi said.
To those who think the virus isn't affecting their day-to-day lives, Cardi pointed out the fact that many of our favorite products are manufactured in China.
"A lot of s*** comes from motherf***ing China," she states. "So if you’re wondering why your mother****in' weave or your Fashion Nova mother****in' packages haven’t arrived, guess what? coronavirus, coronavirus," she screams enthusiastically. "I'm telling you, s*** is getting real."
Meanwhile, Safaree offered a conspiracy theory on Twitter: He believes the government has something to do with the outbreak.
"Stop letting the carona virus stop y’all from living y’all lives. I don’t trust the government. They got something to do with it," he said. "They shoulda stopped certain flights from coming in to America since December. Go chuck up Innah yuh mumma trump!!"
Ciara, Mariah Carey and more have canceled or postponed appearances and concerts due to the coronavirus outbreak. Major live events, including SXSW and Coachella, have either been canceled or postponed.
