Fighting for a Picture with Cardi B – Part 1
Cardi has decided to speak
out after a video went viral of her fleeing from angry fans
at a Las Vegas shopping mall. Now, according to the Blast, the fans
became angry with Cardi, who’s seven months pregnant by the way, after she
refused to take a picture with them. The fans started screaming profanity at her.
>>Lord>>With one man even saying, quote. This is him, come outside, you bitch. [CROSSTALK]
>>Now Cardi explained her side of what happened in now
deleted tweets, saying quote, if I repectfully told you I don’t want to
take a picture, your drunk ass shouldn’t get close to me and
disrespect my decision space or privacy. [APPLAUSE] I always take
pictures with my fans. If I don’t have on no makeup, in a rush,
not in the mood, I’m not obligated. So ladies, now Cardis’ album
is called Invasion of Privacy. But is this crazy or what? No, she’s absolutely right. My God, and
whether you’re a celebrity or not, you absolutely have the right to say no,
not now. [APPLAUSE] I mean, what’s the?
>>[APPLAUSE] I think sometimes. I mean, I always try to take pictures with
my fans, but then there are some days. You know, you have to realize that people
are human, and that they have a life. I remember one time, I was on my way to an
appointment, and I was late, and there was this homeless man sitting outside and
he was like, hey is that Tia or Tamara. Can I have an autograph?
>>[LAUGH]>>I was like, I’m so sorry, I’m running late and he was like, I dont like you anyway and
I was like, my gosh I’m sorry. I just couldn’t stop at that moment,
you know what I mean? Or if you’re in church. I remember one time I
was Praising the Lord. I mean literary,
tears coming down my face, and I felt the tap like excuse me, excuse me. Are you the girl from Sister Sister? Can I take a picture? And I was like my gosh. As I was crying I said after church ma’am. After church.
>>Yeah.>>I’ll do it.>>No, I got you beat. [APPLAUSE]
>>What?>>I got you beat.>>What?>>No.>>I was at my grandma’s funeral.
>>What?>>My grandma’s funeral, 93 years old. We’re up here, I just went to speak,
went to go sit down. Man comes with a piece of paper,
give me your autograph. I said, this is my grandma’s funeral. If you don’t go sit down somewhere and
I had to cuss in the church. Excuse me lord. It was the funeral. Some people just don’t understand. They don’t get it.
>>Maybe they just have to put themselves in your shoes sometimes.
>>But the question I have is, shouldn’t she have security that should take care
of this so that she, first of all, I’m concerned because she is pregnant.
>>Yeah.>>And that’s a lot of pressure and stress on her and the baby.
>>On the body.>>Shouldn’t she have security that kind of-
>>So that was watched the video
>>That was her security, that was barricading the door. But, they clearly liked it instead,
it was Vegas, they’d be day-drinking. They’re clearly,
the guy actually shuts his own woman. If you watch the video, she’s like,
wait babe, and he shoves his woman and proceeds to tell Cardi.
>>I’m gonna bite you.
>>Come outside.>>Yeah, come outside.>>Yeah that right there.>>Well you know Cardi is in New York, so she’s [CROSSTALK] whether
she’s pregnant or not. [CROSSTALK]
>>She was at the window obviously trying to explain herself to the woman. Like know, I just whatever. So we asked you guys if you think
celebrities are obligated to take pictures with fans if they ask. @smirk said, at the end of the day, celebrities are still us.
>>[APPLAUSE]>>Yes they know what comes with the fame, but we have to be empathetic to
the fact that they are still humans and have those days. Then you had @nattynat8 said, yes because they know what they
signed up for, the lifestyle. And they should be humble about it. Without fans they wouldn’t have game.
