Cardi B has no patience for online hate and thus decided to clap back at netizens hating on her for wanting to buy an expensive purse worth $88,000.

The issue initially arose on the micro-blogging site after the Grammy award-winning rapper posed the question to her fan base and asked, “Should I spend 88K for this damn purse? Omggg it’s tempting.”

This unleashed a plethora of backlash, hate and derogatory comments. Many called the rapper out for being “insensitive” to the plight of the working class during difficult times.

The hate got to the point where Cardi was forced to explain herself and her true intentions. She wrote, “Also I got 7 uncles an 3 aunts on my daddy side,9 aunts and 3 uncles on my momma side a whole bunch of cousins I had to help cause of the pandemic ....If I want to splurge I can with out yall asking for hand outs like me and my husband don’t do so. Thank you.”

She later asked trolls to look within themselves since “I already donated 2 million dollars this year and I’m doing something very special in another country that will be done with next year. What have you donated?"

Near the end, even a person to whom Cardi donated $500 dollars a couple of months ago, tried to call her out for extravagant choices of buying.

She issued a swift reply to the user and shut that conversation down, hard, saying, “You see ...so ya drag celebrities to not spend their hard workin money on things that they desire to donate but the same people that you donate too are the same people that’s going to talk shit bout you In a couple of months?”

At the end, Cardi seemed so tired of the constant backlash that she claimed, “Definitely buying the bag now.”
