Cardi B has since taken to Instagram to apologize. She explained in a video:
‘When I did the Reebok shoot the creative told me I’d be a goddess that represents strength, femininity, and liberation, and that is something I love, that I’m all about and I thought it was dope. “
“If people think I offended their culture or religion I want to say I’m sorry – that was not my intent. I would not want anyone to disrespect my religion, with people dressed as the Virgin Mary or Jesus, as long as they do it in a beautiful and graceful way.”
She went on to say:
“Maybe I should’ve done my research. I’m sorry. I can’t change the past but I’m gonna do more research for the future.”
