Cardi B Faces Backlash After Hosting
Large Thanksgiving Gathering.
On Sunday, Cardi B took to Twitter
to talk about her Thanksgiving
gathering, calling it “lit.”.
She shared that she had “12 kids and
25 adults” over for the November holiday. .
Social media users were not pleased with Cardi B’s
decision to gather during the COVID-19 pandemic. .
Many Americans have had to forgo
or drastically alter their plans this year
due to the dangers of the virus. .
Cardi B replied to the criticism,
saying she was “sorry” and that she
wasn't trying to “offend” anyone. .
She also justified her actions by saying
she had spent “so much money” getting everyone
tested for COVID-19 so they could attend. .
Sorry my bad wasn’t trying to make nobody
feel bad. I just had my family in my home for
the first time and it felt so good & uplifted
me. I spent soo much money getting
[everyone] tested but it felt worth it, Cardi B, via Twitter.
After receiving more criticism, Cardi B
shared a final message on the subject, saying people
were trying too hard to “be offended.” .
According to Eric Cioe-Peña, director of global
health with Northwell Health in New York, a negative test
is not a 100% guarantee that you don't have COVID-19. .
COVID-19's long incubation period make testing
inconclusive, as it make take a few days from contraction
for you to actually start shedding the virus. .
In addition, infected people with
low viral loads of COVID-19 are
still contagious but more likely to
receive a false negative.
