Cardi B apologises after supporting fundraiser for Armenia
Cardi B has apologised after she and Offset supported a fundraiser for Armenia amid the country’s conflict with Azerbaijan.
The WAP hitmaker shared a voice note on Twitter that saw her admit that the pair ‘didn’t do their research’ and call for peace.
‘I woke up this morning and I’m seeing that me and my baby father are getting attacked,’ she began.
‘Yesterday we were trying to sell a property that we have in Atlanta. Not a big house, but you know we invest in a lot of properties. And we were trying to sell it because of the market and everything.
‘And our consultant is Armenian and he was really in distress because he was saying there’s a lot of terrible genocides going on in his country, and he said “Can you please post something for a cause, for a good cause, for Armenia?”
‘And we said, “Sure, why not?” We love to support everybody. And then I wake up and I see a lot of people from Azerbaijan writing me things, writing me stuff, and I did not know that this is a war between two countries.’
Cardi went on to describe both places as ‘beautiful countries,’ recalling her previous visit to Azerbaijan.
‘My wish is, since I did a little bit of research today, ’cause you guys left me so much comments, my wish is that both the countries would just be at peace,’ she continued.
‘You guys already have big pieces of land. There’s no tiny land that is worth chaos, death, fighting, especially in this year. This is such a bad year, there’s a lot of sickness. I feel like God is trying to give us a message.’
Cardi went on to say: ‘I hope just peace over there. I’m not picking sides, I love both the countries,’ before adding: ‘I’m sorry that I offended anybody, that is not my style, I don’t like that type of stuff […] we just really wish peace, and that’s it.’
Fighting erupted between Armenia and Azerbaijan last week, over disputes relating to the borders in the Caucasus region following the end of the Soviet Union.
Cardi and Offset aren’t the only stars to have spoken out about the conflict, with Elton John also calling for peace.
‘I was deeply upset to see that military conflict has broken out in the region between Armenia and Azerbaijan after many peaceful years,’ he wrote on Instagram.
‘I’ve personally visited both countries and was welcomed so warmly. It’s devastating that many lives have been lost on both sides – my heart breaks for the affected families. I‘m praying for an end to the violence for both countries.’
