Another celebrity not following CDC guidelines in the middle of the pandemic? Yep, this time it is the beloved Cardi B. The WAP rapper rang in her 28th birthday in Las Vegas. The party was nothing short of lavish, and over-the-top, just like Cardi B herself. The only issue? No masks and there were a LOT of people. Just look at the photo Cardi posted on her Instagram: We are in the middle of a pandemic, in case anyone forgot. People are dying at an alarming rate, while college students are still partying and anti-maskers are throwing tantrums to get into stores. The last thing we need is ANOTHER celebrity hosting a party sans masks and common sense. Fans are tired after being let down time and time again by people they look up to in Hollywood. Why do celebrities feel exempt from participating in social distancing, and mask wearing? Twitter Reacts As always people are voicing their opinions about the Vegas blowout on Twitter: Sorry guys I think the title should say… Cardi B celebrate her 28th birthday with a massive party despite the pandemic and no one was wearing a mask. That's the title … I'm just saying. pic.twitter.com/7Vbk8qPFF7 — 🍉Ele Medina Fraíz- G🍑 (@eleonoramfg) October 11, 2020 I like how @iamcardib is mad at people who don’t wear mask but literally she had a party last night with people who had no masks on. — nathan. (@nathanb1216) October 11, 2020 Not @iamcardib throwing a party during a pandemic when our numbers are spiking out of control again. I just… these celebrities really don’t care about anyone but themselves huh. pic.twitter.com/Tf1mJ6Vm12 — ysd (titsahhh!) (@dojacatsnose) October 11, 2020 Soooooo nobody’s gonna talk about the fact that Cardi B had a HUGE birthday party for herself during a pandemic that’s killed over 200,000 people in the United States and nobody at the party was wearing a mask????? pic.twitter.com/SitcaNBVlW — Rashad H. (@_raSHADE_) October 12, 2020 Maybe by chance, the hundreds of people were tested pre-party to keep everyone safe, but until we know that, this just looks incredibly unsafe. The Wrong Focus While there is a conversation buzzing around the ridiculousness of the party, many outlets and fans were more concerned with her and Offset’s relationship. The couple recently announced they were getting a divorce and their relationship was “irreconcilable” with no chance of getting back together. That did not seem to be the case at the party, where Offset surprised Cardi B with a Rolls Royce. But we are missing the bigger picture here of why there was a party to begin with. Yes, their relationship is interesting, but possibly infecting thousands of people because of poor decisions is what needs to be talked about. This Twitter user felt like fans needed to focus back in on what was really important. So people care more about Cardi B’s relationship status rather than the fact that she threw a birthday party in a club in the middle of a pandemic? Ok — Liz (@bossasslizz) October 11, 2020 Celebrities are not immune Cardi B is not the first, and unfortunately, she will probably not be the last. Her birthday comes after a Summer filled with celebrities pretending Covid-19 was not around. In late July, the hype house, filled with all of TikTok’s biggest stars, threw themselves a huge party which included influencers and Youtubers like James Charles, Nikita Dragun, and Tana Mongeau in attendance. Tyler Oakley called out Hype House TikToker Larray for throwing a massive birthday party despite the pandemic. James Charles, Nikita Dragun, Charli D'Amelio, and more attended the party.

The event got closed down because the bookstore had no social distancing efforts in place and Lana’s mask was pointless. It is not a celebrity’s role to be a role model, but it is important to remember that their fanbase is made up of primarily pre-teens and teens who want to be just like them. Celebs making simple ethical decisions is integral in our world, especially in a pandemic. To date, over 215,000 people have died from Coronavirus in the United States. Now is the time to get serious about your actions and realize how they could affect other people. In Case You Forget Do not be a Lana Del Rey and wear a mesh mask. The CDC recommends wearing a mask made of a tightly woven cotton material is best. Remember that it should go over your mouth AND nose (we are looking at you, Karen). Wash your hands several times a day with soap and water. It is recommended that you scrub your hands for 20 seconds. Since you probably are not going to count for 20 seconds, just sing the ‘Happy Birthday’ song to yourself twice. Most importantly, please social distance. At the store, keep a solid 6 feet between you and the person in front of/around you to avoid any unwanted contamination. Do not attend parties where masks and social distancing will not be in place. Opt for a cute Zoom movie night or have a happy hour in the comfort of your pajamas on FaceTime. Moral of the story: be a good person and respect others. Make the ethical decision to wear a mask and not party with hundreds of people.
From secret weddings to cheating allegations, we have all been aboard Cardi B’s and Offset’s emotional rollercoaster as they climbed hills and encountered steep drops. However, as they neared their third wedding anniversary, the rappers have decided to unbuckle their seatbelts and end their wild ride. After overwhelming evidence of Offset repeatedly cheating throughout their relationship, Cardi B finally had enough. On Tuesday, Cardi B’s lawyer submitted documents in Atlanta to divorce Offset and request full custody of their two-year old daughter Kulture. However, on Wednesday morning Cardi B made some adjustments as she disagreed with the terms her lawyer asked for. She wants an “amicable” divorce and a healthy co-parenting relationship with her daughter’s father. Relationship Timeline In attempts to keep their personal lives on the down low, Offset and Cardi B secretly got married in September 2017, but Offset publicly proposed in October – a month after they were already married. After months of keeping people in the dark on their marital status, the husband and wife revealed the truth in June 2018. However, the secrets did not end there. For a while, Cardi B held her pregnancy a secret as she wanted people to focus on her music rather than her personal life. When it became impossible to hide her pregnancy, Cardi B shocked fans as she boasted her pregnant body during her performance on SNL in April 2018. Cardi B officially reveals her pregnancy on #SNL https://t.co/EsbqDvIny7 pic.twitter.com/ePl3kEsyHx — Rap-Up (@RapUp) April 8, 2018 Although their relationship had many milestones, there were rocks in the road as videos resurfaced of Offset cheating on Cardi B in December 2017 and January 2018. Despite pressure from fans to leave him, Cardi B stuck by his side. But a year later, Cardi B announced on Instagram that the couple had broken up and she’s looking into getting a divorce. Aww the way Cardi B is talking? pic.twitter.com/CNNsEmB7sp — AbikeArab Money? (@papaya_ex) September 16, 2020 Shortly after their breakup went public, Offset confessed that he missed his wife and ambushed Cardi B onstage during the Rolling Loud music festival with signs asking her to take him back. After a month of Offset’s multiple grand gestures, the couple got back together at the end of January 2019. For over a year, it seemed that their marriage was going strong as the couple expressed their love for each other on social media – especially this summer. But it seems Offset has not learned his lesson as many women have come forward exposing their affairs with the Migos member, leading Cardi B to finally divorce him. Divorce Details According to TMZ, the original court documents stated that the couple have been separated for some time and Cardi B has no intention of getting back together with Offset. Cardi B’s lawyer requested for an “equitable share of marital assets,” which leads us to assume that – unlike many other celebrity marriages – there was no prenup when the rappers got married. Also, the lawyer asked for Cardi B to get full custody of her daughter and for Offset to pay child support and legal expenses. However, Cardi B was surprised by the stance her lawyer was taking, which led her to make some changes on Wednesday morning. In the new documents, she wants Offset to have joint custody of their daughter and to not be forced to give any financial support. She wants this divorce to be smooth and friendly. The exes are set to appear in court on November 4 to determine the official terms of their divorce. Twitter Responses Although this is a serious and saddening situation for the two parties involved, people are taking to Twitter to create memes and jokes about their divorce. Cardi B is known for her sexual and explicit songs, and many are analyzing the lyrics to her song ‘WAP’ to explain why Offset was unfaithful. However, many are slut-shaming Cardi B in the process. Cardi B should’ve really learned to cook & clean for Offset instead of just relying on that WAP… didn’t get her too far after all. — DeAnna Lorraine ?? (@DeAnna4Congress) September 15, 2020 I guess it ain't a WAP, her husband still get real WAP LOLWHAT does that ring mean now. Since you dont cook or clean. — MomaShugg (@MommaShugg1) September 16, 2020 Lol. So my question is: Does Cardi have that WAP if he cheating???? — La'Marcus (@Markkhuz) September 16, 2020 Cardi B doesn’t cook, she doesn’t clean and she can’t keep a man like my ex. @iamcardib.

And she needs a partner that embraces that, is in awe of that, cherishes that, is in reverence of that, and delights in that. — Bolu Babalola (@BeeBabs) September 15, 2020 I'm not surprised cardi B is divorceing offset. She's sitting with presidential candidates & looking to make change. He's been cheating on her since day one. She just outgrew him. — ?? Quinn ???? (@Quinn510_) September 16, 2020 It’s so sad to watch so many people talking down on Cardi B as if she is the one in the wrong. Like I always say, celebrity women get cheated on bc these men are jealous of them in their stardom & are trying to publicly humiliate them to make themselves feel confident. — ABM (@imani_yvonne2) September 16, 2020 How do you feel about Cardi B’s and Offset’s divorce? Will the divorce be as friendly as Cardi B hopes?
