Cardi B doesn’t care what ‘Tiger King’ star and big cat enthusiast Carole Baskin thinks of her WAP video.
In a statement to Entertainment Weekly, Carole shared how she was concerned about the animals shown in the visual, and that she believed it was exploitative to have big cats there in the first place.
“You have to pose a wildcat in front of a green screen to get that image and that doesn’t happen in the wild,” she wrote. “It can’t happen in sanctuaries like ours where cats have plenty of room to avoid a green screen (or would shred it if offered access and could die from ingesting it). That tells me they probably dealt with one of the big cat pimps, probably even one of the ones shown in Tiger King, Murder, Mayhem and Madness, who make a living from beating, shocking and starving cats to make them stand on cue in front of a green screen in a studio.”
In a recent interview with Vice Cardi shut down Carole while simultaneously calling it like she (and the rest of the ‘Tiger King’ audience) sees it.
“I’m not gonna engage with Carole Baskin on that,” Cardi said. “Like, that’s just ridiculous you know? Oh, Lord. Like, girl you killed your goddamn husband.”
And there it is.
