Cardi B's Explanation For Drugging And Robbing Men Only Makes It Worse

The Grammy-winning rapper faced backlash after saying it was something she "needed to do to make a living."

Cardi B’s attempt to explain why she drugged and robbed men during her time working as a stripper has not gone down well.

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper responded to criticism of a newly resurfaced, years-old Instagram Live clip, in which she made the admission, with a lengthy statement that she shared to Twitter on Tuesday:

The Grammy-winner defended her past actions as being something she felt she “needed to do to make a living.”

She’d never claimed “to be perfect” and “made the choices that I did at the time because I had very limited options,” she wrote, adding that “I have a past that I can’t change we all do.”

Cardi B’s reasoning, however, was not received well by the majority of people on Twitter where the #SurvivingCardiB hashtag continued to trend:
