Los Angeles, CA – Cardi B’s recent show of contempt toward the Crips gang has caused a number of nightclubs in Los Angeles to ramp up their security ahead of the Bronx rapper’s visit next week, according to TMZ.
Cardi, who was in Minneapolis for the Super Bowl over the weekend, took to Instagram to upload a picture of her rocking a blue fur coat, but it was her choice use of words in the post’s caption field that has irritated some Crip gang members.
“I hate wearing Flue but this coat was too poppin,” Cardi, who has long associated herself with the Blood gang, wrote. Flue is a term used by some Blood gang members to refer to the color of their Crip rivals without mentioning the actual word.
Cardi later deleted the caption, and even disabled comments after a flurry of threats came her way.
Cardi, who is headed to L.A. for next week’s NBA All-Star festivities, is set to appear at three nightclubs over the weekend.
Following an emergency management meeting on Wednesday (February 7), the three clubs are reported to be tripling the number of armed security guards on site, and even hiring off-duty law enforcement officers to handle any gang violence that may break out.
