US rapper Cardi B has claimed she may move to Antarctica in order to avoid the coronavirus that has infected almost 130,000 people across the world. The singer took to Instagram to express her frustration at the spread of the disease, which also resulted in the crashing of stock markets.
"Once stock markets start going low that’s how I know s**t is getting real. Ain’t nothing that white corporate America hates the most than losing motherf**king money. Let’s stop playing around. Is this coronavirus s**t going to be couple of weeks type of s**t or it is going to be couple of months type of s**t. Let me know so I can start motherf**king racking up on foods and moncler’s so a b**ch can move to a motherf**king Antartica. I’m scared", said Cardi B on her Instagram post.
It seems that many social media users didn’t like the rapper’s statement and said they would be happy if she leaves.
Others made fun of the singer’s comment that she would say hi to Santa Claus, noting that Santa lives in the North Pole, while Antartica is located in the Southern Hemisphere.
