Cardi B’s not one to take trolls lying down. The 28-year-old rapper slammed haters who spewed racist comments via a caustic social media post. The post hinted at how the once-coveted Birkin bags have diminished in their value because female Black rappers made them less “exclusive.”

The inflammatory stance didn’t go down too well with the rapper. She then voiced out her concerns about people wondering if Black women “could get a bag from the Hermés store” and retorted how “y'all don't do this to these white celebrities.”  

“I've been seeing this tweet right. It had me and it had other female rappers on it. They were talking about if we could get Birkins from the Hermés store and they [were] also saying how we depreciate the value of a Hermés Birkin bag. I find that really interesting because, first thing first, I definitely could get a bag. Actually, I got four bags today from the Hermés store,” said the “WAP” rapper, in the video shared by her on Instagram.

“So why is it that y'all gotta be asking us? What the f---? It just makes you want to brag like, ‘Bitch do you know who the f--- you're talking to?’ But no, I'm not even going to take it there,” she added in the video.

She further enthused how influencers of color have actually enhanced the value of the bags, contrary to the popular belief. “Another thing is that they're saying we're depreciating the value,” she said, adding, “Actually, we add value because when we mention brands in hip-hop, s--- go up” The rapper cited that her hit single “Bodak Yellow” led the luxury designer Christian Louboutin’s handbag sales to skyrocket.

"When 'Bodak Yellow' came out you could actually Google that their sales went up to 1000+%." That’s not all. Cardi’s famous lyric, “I like those Balenciagas / The ones that look like socks" from the hit track I Like It Like That”  led to a mammoth spike in Balenciaga sales. “That s--- went up too and that's why they worked with me this year. Like hip-hop, we start trends," Cardi said. “When y'all say that we devalue s---, no we actually add value,” she added.

While Cardi might have been in the mood to roast haters, she had a word of empathy for young women who were yet to make it big. “Let me tell you something: if you're a regular girl you don't gotta break your neck to have a Birkin. A Birkin doesn't make you. A n----- don't give a f--- if you have a Birkin or Aldo purse,” she said, urging her fans to not let brands define them or their worth. She added: “They make that fashion with the Zara and the H&M amazingly. So don't ever feel like you gotta compare yourself. Don't compare yourself to anybody [on] the internet. This internet s--- is fake... You still a bad f---ing bitch. Period.”
