Cardi B has always walked her own path. But that path is starting to get a little ridiculous.
The rapper took to Twitter to rant about the trending new Netflix documentary, ‘Tiger King.’ While rich people all across the globe are contributing to fight the coronavirus pandemic, Cardi B wants to start a GoFundMe for Joe Exotic, star of ‘Tiger King.’
‘Tiger King’ seems to be the only other thing people are talking about right now, besides coronavirus. Cardi B decided to get in on the action. Lines were drawn, and positions were taken. Cardi B is clearly on Team Joe Exotic.
One of the reasons “Tiger King” was so compelling was its divisive characters. It was hard to tell who were the good guys and who were the bad guys. Part of the reason for that is because they’re all bad guys.
That includes Joe Exotic. Why is Cardi B defending this guy? He paid someone to murder a woman. He fed majestic tigers old bologna from Wal-Mart. Joe Exotic even killed tigers. Joe Exotic married multiple young men half his age, most of whom said they were actually straight. He kept one of them drugged and confused for so long that he committed suicide.
When there are so many people that need help right now, do you really want to come to the defense of a murderous hillbilly?
Cardi B looks even more ridiculous when compared to the people who are actually using their influence for good. As much as we hate Mark Zuckerberg, he’s at least dropping millions to find a vaccine for COVID-19.
Cardi could set up a GoFundMe for the many out of work employees that staff venues where she performs. She could try to raise awareness about coronavirus testing. At the very least, she could show us new ways of living, like Chrissy Teigen.
But no, she’s trying to save a man convicted of murder-for-hire. Bravo Cardi B, you’ll be on the right side of history for this one.
