Cardi B believes talking on Twitter about the rising price of lettuce can help with the cost of living crisis in the United States.
On Wednesday, the rapper tweeted: “Naaaaaa grocery shopping prices are ridiculous right now You might as well eat outside!!”
She then added in a second tweet: “B*tch why lettuce cost 6 dollars where I live at?”
The tweets prompted an angry response from some, who pointed out that the “Bodak Yellow” rapper is “rich as hell” and should stop complaining.
Hitting back at the critics, the 30-year-old posted a video on Twitter entitled “PSA!!!!” in which she detailed how her complaints could help with the rising cost of living.
“Lettuce was like $2 a couple of months ago now it’s like f**king $7… of course I’m gonna say something,” she said.
“If I think that s**t is crazy, I could only imagine what middle-class people or people in the hood is m*therf**kin’ thinking, so yes I’m going to say something.
“And I have a big platform so I do want anyone that’s responsible for these f**king prices to put that shit the f**k down. They gon’ see my shit they might put it down. So shut the f**k up.”
This isn’t the first time Cardi has hit back at critics who have called her out for commenting on the cost of living.
After she tweeted: “We going through a recession…..Merry Christmas” in December, one Twitter user replied to her saying: “Says the rapper worth 40 million.”
Responding to the comment, Cardi tweeted: “I’m worth more then that and guess what? If I don’t save ,work and budget I could lose it too!
“What makes you think that no matter how much money you got you can’t lose it all if you don’t manage your money correctly. I too have bills, responsibilities and people I have to help,” Cardi added.
