Rapper Cardi B Apologizes For Posing Like Durga In A Shoe Magazine, After Getting Trolled By Social Media Users
"When people dress as Virgin Mary and Jesus, as long as they do it in a beautiful, graceful way…. But I wasn’t trying to be disrespectful; maybe I should have done my research.
Rapper Cardi B knows how to remain in the headlines either for her personal life or the professional. She is an American Rapper, actress, songwriter and also famous for her own controversies.
Cardi B is posing like Goddess Durga with 10 hands but she is holding a shoe in her hand instead of weapons. Cardi B was seen like a Goddess in the November edition of magazine Footwear News and the trollers lost their control.

American Rapper Cardi B is again in the headlines and also getting severely criticised by Indians for posing like Maa Durga. Tweeters are flooding against Cardi for disrespecting Durga Maa.
Later Rapper Cardi B posted a video story on Instagram and said “When I did the shoot, the creatives told me I was going to represent a Goddess; that she represents strength, femininity and liberation, and that’s something I love and I’m all about. And though it was dope, if people think I’m offending their culture or their religion I want to say that was not my intent. I do not like offending anyone’s religion; I wouldn’t like it if someone did it to my religion."
Cardi B concluded with an apology "When people dress as Virgin Mary and Jesus, as long as they do it in a beautiful, graceful way…. But I wasn’t trying to be disrespectful; maybe I should have done my research. I’m sorry, I can’t change the past but I will do more research for the future,"
Footwear News also apologized “We take full accountability for this oversight and we apologize. It is important we learn from this example and are sensitive to this sort of religious imagery when creative discussions are taking place in the future. Today, we’re releasing another cover from the shoot that was a subscriber exclusive.”
