In a recent Instagram video, the Grammy Award-winning rapper issued a colorful PSA for those questioning the seriousness of the situation.
“Government, let me tell y’all mutahfuckas something,” she shouted in the clip. “I don’t know what the fuck this coronavirus is about. I don’t understand how this shit was from Wuhan, China, now all of the sudden this shit is on muthafuckin’ tour. And let me tell y’all something, I ain’t even gonna front. A bitch is scared. I’m a little scared. You know what I’m saying? Like, shit got me panicking.”
Cardi continued by suggesting even if people think they’re safe, they’re not.
“A lot of you muthafuckas think it’s a joke like I was thinking, right?” she added. “But that shit right there, just because you think you’re immune to it, guess what? You probably ain’t bitch ’cause a lot of that shit comes from muthafuckin’ China, bitch.
“So if you wonder where your muthafuckin’ weave or your Fashion Nova muthafuckin’ packages haven’t arrived, guess what bitch? Coronavirus [laughs]! Coronavirus! I’m tellin’ you, shit is real! Shit is getting real.”
According to the CDC website, there are 938 cases in the United States and 29 deaths in 39 states, including the District of Columbia.
