In an Instagram Live video that resurfaced over the weekend, Cardi B got emotional when explaining the lengths she's had to go to make it in the music industry. At one point in the clip from three years ago, Bardi even admitted to drugging and robbing men who wanted to have sex with her during her time as a stripper in New York just to get by.
"I had to go strip, I had to go, ‘Oh yeah, you want to fuck me? Yeah, let’s go back to this hotel.' And I drugged n---as up and I robbed them. That’s what I used to do," she said.
With Cardi's statements going viral, her detractors joined together in getting the hashtag #SurvivingCardiB to trend on Twitter, a reference to the harrowing Surviving R. Kelly docuseries. Some have even called for Cardi to be canceled or thrown in jail and even compared her to Bill Cosby.
