According to the Western Journal, Cardi B is facing backlash from fans who are “looking for a handout” as the rapper put.
Cardi B asked her fans if she should buy an $88,000 purse. Her fans suggested she should donate that money and gave her a hard time for being so “elitist” and privileged.
She defended her self saying that she supported many people and donated money during the coronavirus pandemic.
In previous years Cardi B has expressed her support for left-wing policies such as gun control and she even endorsed Bernie Sanders.
Donate the money to hungry people. Tweets like this are why we want to eat the rich.

it just speaks to your privilege that you could spend that much on a handbag. That's more than most people make in a year.
