Cardi B Says She Got ‘Everyone Tested’ Before Hosting Large Thanksgiving Gathering

Cardi B is apologizing after her Thanksgiving celebrations came under scrutiny when she revealed she hosted an event for 37 people.

Unsurprisingly, a number of people called out the “WAP” rapper for the gathering.

“Why are you proud of not following CDC guidelines and making healthcare workers jobs even harder? I love you but this isn’t something to be proud of,” commented one person. Another added, “Cardi. Oof. We’re in the middle of a pandemic, girl.”

Cardi quickly realized that tweeting about the gathering was probably not best.

“Sorry my bad wasn’t trying to make nobody feel bad,” she tweeted. “I just had my family in my home for the first time and it felt so good & uplifted me.”

She added that she “spent soo much money getting [everyone] tested” and the money spent was “worth it.”

“I wasn’t trying to offend,” she said.

Fans were receptive of her apology, with some praising her for addressing her problems.

Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:

Health officials caution against all international travel. Returning travellers are asked to self-isolate for 14 days in case they develop symptoms and to prevent spreading the virus to others.

Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.

To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out.
