Cardi B was recently featured in the photo shoot for the cover of Footwear News to promote its new shoe partnership with Reebok.
The US singer appears in the image with 8 arms and poses with the distinctive stance of the Hindu Goddess Durga, who has 8 or 10 arms in her traditional depiction and is known as the goddess of power, protection and war.
Cardi B replied to criticism in her Instagram stories, “Many of my fans say that I was dragged on social media. They said it was because of my Reebok shoot and what I was disrespectful to a goddess.”
The 28-year-old Catholic artist explained himself as follows:
“When I shot the Reebok, the art director told me that I would be a goddess representing power, femininity, and liberation, and it was something I loved, fully supported, and I thought it was wonderful.
If people think I was disrespectful to their culture or beliefs, I’m sorry, that wasn’t my intention. I do not like to disrespect people’s religion, I do not want people to disrespect my religion. As long as those dressed as the Virgin Mary or Jesus do this beautifully and gracefully, I wouldn’t feel bad. I was not trying to be disrespectful, maybe I should have done my research. “
The singer added the following to her Instagram post: “Sorry folks, I didn’t want to offend or disrespect anyone’s culture. I cannot change the past, but I will be more careful in the future. ”
Among the critics of the rapper, who owns the WAP song, a Twitter user wrote:
“It’s disgusting for Cardi B to use my religion to promote something and try to swallow it as ‘respect’. What it does is cultural appropriation, and to me no one can argue otherwise. “
But there were also those who defended the star. One of his followers wrote:
“As an Indian and a Hindu, I have not been offended by this sharing. There is nothing wrong with it. “
