Cardi B says she thinks celebrities are getting paid to say they have Coronavirus.
The rapper took to Instagram Live on Saturday night, where she shared her own conspiracy theory about the Coronavirus outbreak.
Several celebrities have revealed they have COVID-19 including Tom Hanks, Idris Elba, Andy Cohen, and Kevin Durant. But, not everyone has displayed symptoms, which has Cardi B wondering.
“Let’s say if I have the coronavirus right now. How am I supposed to know I got it because sometimes I be like, ‘If y’all have a cough, you have it,’” she said. “But then I be seeing these basketball players say like, ‘Yeah, I have the coronavirus, but I don’t got no symptoms.’ So how the fuck am I supposed to know when I’m supposed to get tested for it? Y’all ni**as is playing with me. That’s my problem right there.”
It is important to note the most common symptoms of the Coronavirus are fever, tiredness, and a dry cough. Nearly 80% of people who get the virus experience mild symptoms. For example, Idris Elba said the following after revealing his positive diagnosis, “I feel ok, I have no symptoms so far but have been isolated since I found out about my possible exposure to the virus.”
Cardi B also questioned whether celebrities are getting paid to say they have the virus. “I’m starting to feel like y’all ni**as is paying ni**as to say that they got it,” added Cardi.
Cardi B added, “And if y’all are paying ni**as to say that they got it, pay me too,” she said. “Bitch tryna get paid.”
Cardi was working in the studio on her new album, she admitted she wants to leave the house so she can get plastic surgery. “A bitch tryna get lipo,” she said. “I needs to know when this shit gonna finish.”
